A couple of comments on here really sum it up, what a lovely story, yes like a fable. I am an adult, but enjoy YA stories, and this was definitely poignant. I think it is probably suitable for kids 11 and up, depending on maturity level and reading comprehension. Although I listened to the audio format. I chose this originally looking for something Graeme Malcolm narrated, because his voice is excellent in my opinion. Great story, great narration, recommend.
This short, sweet book works on so many levels. It reads like a fable, with meaningful lessons to teach about loyalty, hope, belonging and perseverance. I wish I'd discovered it when my children were younger. Its story line and accompanying lessons would have made it the perfect book to read to them, yet it's just as enthralling, on a deeper plane, for adults.
This book is about a teenage boy who is homeless and lives under a bridge in Korea. He wants to learn how to make potery. He meets this old man and he starts to teach him. This book is very happy and sad at the same time. I think older kids would have an easier time reading this.
A young orphan boy lives with a disabled elderly man. They help each other survive by sharing food, clothing and living arrangements. The boy becomes an apprentice to a master potter and their lives change for the better and the boy finds that he wishes to become a potter himself. A lovely cd to listen to and a very poignant story.
