Horn Book Review

Lushly illustrated with a variety of techniques adapted from Japanese painting and origami designs, this is the story of Yoko, a little Japanese girl cat going to America and leaving her beloved grandparents behind. Yoko finds a way to help her grandmother celebrate her birthday by making paper cranes and mailing them to Japan. Wells invests her cat characters with dignity and charm.
