A Single Shard--great reading

I have been out of town enjoying warm weather, thinking about pottery and reading a wonderful book called A Single Shard by Linda Sue Park. Hope you go to the link because it has a beautiful cover of the book. This was a 2002 Newberry Award winner and there are ones with different cover art on Amazon, but I just loved the cover at the link (and it's the one I am looking at on my desk). Set in Korea in the 12th century, it is a wonderful story of a young boy, an old potter and the mystery that happens when clay, fire and inspiration all come together.
Would have taken a picture for ya, but I am behind, pressed for time, etc! Good Reading!!

sounds interesting, i mean books about potters - great. my friend is a poet and loaned me an advanced copy of valeria's last stand... i'm reading it now, it's a love story and the man is a potter. i think it comes out next week but you can preorder on amazon... love the cover of a single shard.
