About the Book

The Paper Crane is a beautifully illustrated retelling of an ancient Japanese folktale by Molly Bang, the celebrated creator of numerous picture books including the Caldecott Honor Books Ten, Nine, EightThe Grey Lady and the Strawberry Snatcher; and When Sophie Gets Angry—Really, Really Angry . . .

Business returns to a once-prosperous restaurant when a mysterious stranger pays for his meal with a magical paper crane that comes alive and dances. The Paper Crane is illustrated with cut-paper collages and paintings. It is a wonderful book to use with children learning about patterns in storytelling. “A delight to the eye and imagination.”—The Horn Book.

“An enchanting book.”
