Book Review: A Single Shard

 

Tree-ear lives under a bridge on the edge of a village with a man named Crane-man. He’s a 13-year-old orphan who begins to develop a fascination with pottery making which just happens to be the craft that his village is known for. He enjoys watching a local master potter work and is thrilled when he’s allowed to help. To prove himself, Tree-ear volunteers to deliver samples of the master’s work to the King. He encounters a devastating obstacle on the way that seriously jeopardizes his mission, but he is determined to continue. He arrives at the court with a single shard, but it is enough.
This is a wonderful story about relationships and the power of determination. It will have you laughing and crying. A wonderful read that truly deserves the Newbery medal.
