The first novel by acclaimed poet Tony Mitton (winner of the CLPE Poetry Award - the only award for published poetry for children in the UK). Potter's Boy is a moving and beautiful story about finding your true path in life.
In a small village, a long time ago, young Ryo is desperate for excitement and adventure. When he sees a lone warrior chase bandits away from his home, he realises how he can find it. He learns the man is from a secret group of warriors known only as the `Hidden Ones'. He decides immediately that he is going to leave home, to train to become a fighter. Setting out on his journey to find his way in the world, Ryo will meet brave warriors, wise hermits, and heart- breaking tragedy. His quest and the people he meets along the way lead him to an understanding of what it means to follow his dream, and where his place in the world truly lies.
Praise for Tony Mitton: 'Thrillingly robust, this book is an eternal rallying cry to the heroism of artists, and one every reader should treasure' The Times ; 'Mitton's words flow freely and easily with all the lyrical grace of a song' The Independent
