A Single Shard

by Linda Sue Park
winner of the 2002 Newberry Award

A Single Shard follows the tale of Tree-ear, a young orphan living in a part of 12th century Korea which was famous for its celadon vases and ceramics. (Celadon is a light teal color.)  Tree-ear observes the patience and dedication put into the making of a single celadon pot.  Throughout the story Tree-ear utilizes these same crucial elements as he strives to find his place in life.  Ultimately, a single shard of celadon pottery made all the difference in the world.
