Description
The author of the Caldecott Medal winner Grandfather's Journey here offers a deeply thoughtful book for readers 5 to 9. There is a story of old Japan that Mama reads to Jiro, called "The Grateful Crane," in which a young woodcutter lived alone in a little cottage. One winter day the woodcutter found a crane struggling in a snare and set it free; later a mysterious woman appeared and became his wife. When Jiro looks out into Mr. Ozu's garden, he sees a crane of bronze—and suddenly the story comes to life for him.

"Was this just a dream? The care and subtlety the artist employs to make the contemporary twist believable, in both text and illustration, is extraordinary. A final magnificent image depicts a crane flying through the night sky beneath a full moon."—School Library Journal
