    Tree-ear is an orphan in twelfth-century Korea. He lives under a bridge with Crane-man, a homeless widower who has taken him under his wing. Tree-ear hasn't got many prospects, but he is fascinated by master potter, Min, who lives in the nearby village. Secretly watching Min work, Tree-ear longs to be a potter himself. He persuades Min to let him do little jobs, until one day he has the chance to provide a service for him - one that could bring glory to Min and the village and fulfil his own dreams.

Reviews of A Single Shard

Overall customer rating: 5.000
Nanette H

Great for all ages!

by Nanette H on Nov 4, 2010

This tale, so very beautifully woven in detail by Linda Sue Park, teaches the value of true friendship. A trust that only can come about through enduring hardships and a love that grows out of respect as one overcomes seemingly insurmountable challenges. There is something for everyone; art lover, adventurer, soul seeker, person of faith... And of course there is the clash between the simple/good and greedy/evil... This is a great tool for teaching self esteem where there may be struggles in comparing the tangible wealth of others... Read this book, let it touch you - I promise you will not be disappointed!
