A Single Shard

Author: Linda Sue Park

First line: "Eh, Tree-ear! Have you hungered well today?"

Why you should read this book: A beautiful, Newbery-winning story of a determined orphan who will do anything to learn the potter's trade. Raised under a bridge by a kindly old man with a twisted leg, Tree-ear is upright and honorable, and when he gets the opportunity to work for the greatest potter in the village, he takes the work seriously. Sent on a long journey to bring his master's finest work to the King, Tree-ear faces the challenge of a lifetime and shows the world that he is worthy to become an artist.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You don't see the point in laboring over fine art.
