Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes

Availability: In stock

By: Eleanor Coerr

Hiroshima-born Sadako is lively and athletic-the star of her school's running team. And then the dizzy spells start. Soon gravely ill with leukemia, an aftereffect of the atom bomb that fell on her city when she was an infant, Sadako approaches her illness as she did her running-with irrepressible spirit. Recalling a Japanese legend, Sadako sets to work folding paper cranes. For the legend holds that if a sick person folds one thousand cranes, the gods will grant her wish and make her healthy again.
