I think that this story was a wonderful story. I first read it when I was younger, and I really enjoyed it. Sadako has such spirit and life in the story, and her determination to live is very courageous. It made me cry at the end, but I would read it again any time!! I recommend this book to anyone, whether you are looking for a good tearjerker, or just another good book to add to your collection! Please, take the time to read this one! It is well worth it!

Readers from the very young to the very old will be moved by Sakako's battle with leukemia. Her story reminds us of why we must work towards peace. It is a story of hope.

A great little book very reasonably priced. It was used in school when learning about Hiroshima and the significance of Japanese origami cranes. It arrived quickly.

Delicately handles tough subject matter - childhood leukaemia. This is an easy read for KS2 readers enabling most children to access this poignant story. We are doing a peace project at school based on Sadako's stort and this book has inspired a whole school to make 1000 Paper Cranes! Only problem is sourcing large numbers of this book as it's published by Puffin USA.

Shared my grand daughters school edition and had to get one for all my grand children A very moving true story.It does not have a happy ending in the usual sense and there are some very sad moments .My grandchildren 7,8,9,10 boys and girls have all now shared it.All could read it independently but because of the content I thought it best to share it first..A refreshing change from their usual reading material.

This is a wonderful story, bound to bring a tear, although it is also uplifting and inspirational.The book is well written and would suit all ages. It sends a powerful message about the aftermath of Hiroshima.
