After a girl saves his life, Luck, a young sandhill crane, begins the long migration north to Siberia with his parents. Luck and his parents use a special song to find one another: Crackaarr! While his parents depend on rivers, lakes, and mountains to guide their way, Luck memorizes man-made objects -- windmills, sunglasses, and a baby carriage. Soon thousands of cranes join Luck and his family on their timeless journey. Follow Luck's challenging flight through the voice of master storyteller Jean Craighead George and the art of the critically acclaimed Wendell Minor.

Every year as many as half-a-million Sand Hill cranes make a famous migration north from Texas, along the Platte River to Canada, Alaska, and destinations as far away as Siberia. Wendell Minor's well-modulated narration gives a fictionalized account of that spectacular event through the experience of a crane named Luck. Music accompanies the entire story, and sound effects bring the story to life: the unusual crane voices, wings flapping, and noises of whatever is happening below the birds in flight. The slow pace seems designed for the young listener to enjoy Minor's double-page illustrations in the accompanying book. These splendid pictures let the listener see the world of this perilous journey from the bird's-eye view. R.H.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
