Morrow Junior Books,
Pub. Date:

On August 6, 1945, an atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan. Out of the ashes grew the legacy of Sadako, the girl who folded a thousand paper cranes. Now Sheila Hamanaka, author and illustrator of the acclaimed All the Color of the Earth, uses majestic oil paintings and heartfelt verse to express the dreams of another child, trapped in the violence of today's world, who wonders if the peace crane will ever come.

Fifty years after the bombing of Hiroshima, this luminous book affirms the true spirit of Sadako and all who believe that peace is possible in our troubled time.
