Japanese legend holds that if a person who is ill makes a 1,000 paper cranes, the gods will grant that person's wish to be well again. Beautiful illustrations by Caldecott-medalist Ed Young enhance the story of Sadako, a young girl dying of leukemia as a result of the atom bombing of Hiroshima.
Hospitalized with the dreaded atom bomb disease, leukemia, Sadako races against time to fold one thousand paper cranes. Legend says this will make a sick person healthy.
