Dave the Potter (Carter G Woodson Honor Book (Awards)) ハードカバー – 絵本, 2010/9/7
Dave was an extraordinary artist, poet, and potter living in South Carolina in the 1800s. He combined his superb artistry with deeply observant poetry, carved onto his pots, transcending the limitations he faced as a slave. In this inspiring and lyrical portrayal, National Book Award nominee Laban Carrick Hill's elegantly simple text and award-winning artist Bryan Collier's resplendent, earth-toned illustrations tell Dave's story, a story rich in history, hope, and long-lasting beauty.
Bryan Collier has illustrated more than twenty-five picture books, including the award-winning Trombone Shorty, Dave the Potter, and Knock Knock: My Father's Dream for Me, as well as City Shapes, and Fifty Cents and a Dream, and has received four Caldecott Honors and six Coretta Scott King Awards. He lives with his wife and children in Marlboro, New York.

As for how the story is told (which says nothing about what the story is based upon), there is much to be desired. There isn't really a story to be honest - a few phrases to evoke an image, but it doesn't really tell you about Dave himself. Instead, it loosely walks you through his process of creating a pot, but little beyond that. What you get for actual historical knowledge about Dave, that is reserved for a rather formal presentation at the end, which was also lacking in details that would have helped flesh out the context and significance of Dave's story (though in their defense, very little is known about Dave).
I'm very happy with the purchase. The story is wonderfully written. The artwork is incredibly warm and alive. The author and illustrator had done an excellent job of conveying Dave's story with a few carefully chosen words and wonderful images that feel real, but still feed the imagination and help to pull you into the story.
My children love this book and we have read it many times since its arrival. This is a wonderful addition to any child's library no matter how old the child.
