Steeped in traditional Japanese folk elements, universal and timeless in theme, this original picture book tells the story of Yoshiko, a little girl who no longer feels wanted upon the birth of a baby brother and leaves home in search of a new family. Gentle and touching, The Crane Girl transforms the doubts of young children into a certainty of abiding love. Full color.
