“This is a beautiful story about the true meaning of friendship. Aki Sogabe's illustrations are strikingly beautiful and truly enhance the simple yet poignant text. Another plus is that the book contains directions for creating the origami bird featured in the story!”
-- Carmen Slaughter, Yawn's Books & More, Canton, GA
