    Foraging in fields and on rubbish heaps, and sharing food with his friend Crane-man, used to be enough to fill Tree-ear's days. But now all Tree-ear wants to do is watch master potter Min at work.

    If you could sum up A Single Shard in three words, what would they be?

    Wholesome, uplifting and enjoyable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved how Tree-ear is true to his values without making excuses for his poverty or difficult circumstances.


    What about Graeme Malcolm’s performance did you like?

    He does an excellent job in portraying the different characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to it in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Children in the US are sometimes very naive about other cultures and lifestyles. I think that this book should be read by older children all over the world, but specially by children in the US.

    Barcelona, 1945: Just after the war, a great world city lies in shadow, nursing its wounds, and a boy named Daniel awakes on his 11th birthday to find that he can no longer remember his mother's face. To console his only child, Daniel's widowed father, an antiquarian book dealer, initiates him into the secret of the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, a library tended by Barcelona's guild of rare-book dealers as a repository for books forgotten by the world, waiting for someone who will care about them again.

    Katherine says: "Great With One Exception"
    "Intriguing and mesmerizing-loved the story."

    What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His accent is wonderful!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Many moments in the story moved me, but I do not want to spoil it for the reader.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Carlos Ruiz Zafon's narrative. I can't wait to read the next books.
