In this Newbery Medal-winning book set in 12th century Korea, Tree-ear, a 13-year-old orphan, lives under a bridge in Ch’ulp’o, a potters' village famed for delicate celadon ware. He wants nothing more than to watch master potter Min at work, and he dreams of making a pot of his own someday. When Min takes him on as his helper, Tree-ear  is determined to prove himself --- even if it means taking a long, solitary journey on foot to present Min’s work in the hope of a royal commission.
