A Japanese tale of friendship, suffering and the transformative power of love interwoven with poetry and gorgeous illustrations, this book will leave you stirred from sorrow and love. Initially we set out to find stories about cranes while learning the art of origami and found this magical tale among the 'how to's'. A beautiful read.
