El halcón es un animal con aspecto fiero; Por eso, a menudo, ha sido empleado como símbolo de la guerra. ¿Pero qué pasaría si el halcón estuviese cansado de tanta violencia, de tanto odio, y decidiese transformarse en una paloma? ¿Dejarían entonces de disparar los cañones? ¿Se detendrían los tanques? ¿Se transformarían los aviones de guerra en bellas mariposas?

El halcón es un animal con aspecto fiero; Por eso, a menudo, ha sido empleado como símbolo de la guerra. ¿Pero qué pasaría si el halcón estuviese cansado de tanta violencia, de tanto odio, y decidiese transformarse en una paloma? ¿Dejarían entonces de disparar los cañones? ¿Se detendrían los tanques? ¿Se transformarían los aviones de guerra en bellas mariposas?
"Quarrelsome Hawk tires of conflict and wills himself to change - and whoosh! He turns into peaceful Dove. And that change brings more: with a turn of the page (and through the use of clever papercuts), tanks fall silent and are replaced by sowing tractors, warplanes turn into butterflies, warships stow their guns and transform into brightly-colored sailboats, guns shoot not bullets but bouquets of flowers, and all the land is enveloped by a comforting blanket of calm. People everywhere celebrate the coming of peace. And Dove, victorious, is glad - but still she worries: what if another, different Hawk lies in wait? She wonders: Friend or foe? How will we know? And how will this story end? A note at the end of the book details the inspiration behind the story and the book's creation, accompanied by images from Kor's childhood sketchbooks and a photo of the scissors he used to create the papercuts for The Hawk and the Dove."-- Provided by publisher.
