"This is our cry. This is our prayer. Peace in the world." These are the words engraved at the base of the statue of Sadako in Hiroshima Peace Park. Hauntingly beautiful illustrations by Caldecott-medalist Ed Young enhance the story of Sadako, a young Japanese girl's struggle against leukemia, the "atom-bomb disease", which she developed when she was twelve, just ten years after the bomb was dropped. This story is a heartbreaker.
