But you cannot just walk up to a master potter and ask him to teach you his craft, especially if you're an orphan like Tree - ear. First Tree - ear must prove he is worthy of Min's time and teachings. So he asks the honourable master if he can work for him, without pay, for the privilege of being near such talent.

Great for all ages!
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!
