Amanda Craig reviews A SIngle Shard by Linda Sue Park

And in The Guardain Julia Eccleshare writes: "There is a charming high-mindedness in A Single Shard as Linda Sue Park recreates the hardship and simplicity of the potter's life at a time when craftsmanship was valued but not rewarded."

This novel has a bleak, low-key opening that may put off impatient children, but an extraordinarily moving and delightful tale develops.
