    I like it and don’t at the same time because I don’t like pottery. But what I like about it is that it’s nonfiction.

    Did you read Primates? — Kate Davie

    The artwork is beautiful. But that’s not the point of the book. This book has an important life lesson! Read to find out what that lesson is!

    I would say that this book is a little short, but it has a lot about pottery the person did. This isn’t the best book I’ve read, but it would inspire any potential people who’d like to do pottery.

    This book was amazing if you like books that read slow and steady then go into fast. You will love all the info in this book and the book itself. Also if you like nonfiction you will love this book. If you are an artist like me you will get a lot of ideas from this book.
