THE CRANE WIFE
- A Japanese Folk Tale
retold by Sumiko Yagawa
illustrated by Suekichi Akaba

"The Crane Wife" is an old Japanese folk tale about a beautiful woman's sacrifice for her husband. The woman is, in reality, a crane that plucks out its own feathers to weave a magnificent cloth so that her husband may become rich. The man's unwitting greed, however, destroys both the woman and her love, resulting in a tragedy that all readers will feel in their hearts.
