Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes: 25th Anniversary EditionDESCRIPTION: For twenty-five years, middle-grade readers have been moved by this telling of Sadako Sasaki's spirited battle with leukemia. She was two-years-old when the atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima at the end of World War II, and dizzy spells began when she was twelve. She faced the disease with an irrepressible spirit and focused her energy (and that of everyone who knew her) on folding 1000 paper cranes, which Japanese legend held would prompt the gods to make her well again. Eleanor Coerr crafted this story of Sadako's twelfth year after reading the book of her letters her classmates compiled after her death. This special edition contains a bio of Eleanor Coerr with details about her work on this book and instructions for folding paper cranes. "An extraordinary book, one no reader will fail to find compelling and unforgettable." ( Booklist , starred review) "The story speaks directly to young readers of the tragedy of Sadako's death and, in its simplicity, makes a universal statement for 'peace in the world.'" ( The Horn Book )
