As she grew ill, she was determined to fold 1,000 paper cranes, for the saying went if you folded them, your wish would come true. Her determination and courageous struggle with her illness marked her family and classmates, and after her death, they started a campaign to build the children's peace statue in memory of her and other child-victims. Even today, her statue is covered with thousands of paper cranes brought and sent by people around the world. 97 pages, softcover.

Twelve-year-old Sadako Sasaki was the lively star of her school's running team when the dizzy spells started. Soon gravely ill with leukemia, an aftereffect of the atom bomb that fell on her city when she was a toddler, Sadako approached her illness as she did her running - with irrepressible spirit. Recalling a Japanese legend, Sadako set 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. This new edition contains instructions for folding paper cranes and a biographical note with details about the writing of this book.
