Newbery Award-winning author Linda Sue Park brings us a story of perseverance set in 12th century Korea. Living under a bridge with his only friend, the crippled Crane Man, 12-year-old orphan Tree Ear seeks a better life for them both. After Tree Ear breaks a piece of master potter Min’s work, Min grudgingly allows the boy to help with menial tasks in repayment, but never permits Tree Ear to try his hand at pottery. When the Emperor requests a sample of Min’s exquisite pottery, Tree Ear volunteers to embark on the dangerous journey in hope of earning the master potter’s respect.
