Product Details


Praise for Sadako

★ ”Coerr uses a quiet, unsentimental voice in her retelling, letting the content of the story speak for itself. And it does, powerfully. Young amplifies the story’s vision with his impressionistic pastel artwork illustrating scene after scene with narrative simplicity and emotional depth. A remarkable, moving book.” —Booklist (starred review)

★”A masterful collaboration that will attract many new friends for Sadako.”—School Library Journal (starred review) 

“Coerr’s condensed text succeeds in retaining the simple lyricism of the original, allowing the leukemia-stricken Sadako to emerge as a quietly courageous girl.”—Publishers Weekly
