Book Review: A Single Shard by Linda Sue Park from C Vidor Description VoiceThread showcases information and images about the geography, history, setting, and themes of Linda Sue Park's Newbery award winning book, A Single Shard.
In fact A Single Shard is the antithesis of these books. Compared to the action books nothing happens in A Single Shard. The major characters include an orphan and an old, one-legged man who live under a bridge; and a surly potter and his wife.
