In this radiant tale, a young boy in Japan celebrates his very first Christmas. Two cultures joyously combine for the day as the boy's mother shares a glimpse of her American childhood with her son. Allen Say's glowing watercolors and affecting words paint a story rich with the holiday spirit-a story of family, of giving, of goodwill, and the hope for peace.
Allen Say has written and illustrated many books for children, including the Caldecott Medal winner Grandfather's Journey and Caldecott Honor book The Boy of the Three Year Nap . He lives in Portland, Oregon.

Editorial Reviews

A gift from artist to child that indicates a ripe maturity in both its illustrative and textual elements. Serving as a bridge between American and Japanese cultures, . . . understated and pristine, Tree of Cranes is the achievement of a master in his prime, one of the best picture books of this or any other year." Horn Book, Starred "
