George Ohr thought he was the greatest art potter on the earth, but nobody agreed with him until 50 years after his death.

A great book to share with a kid who may feel out-of-sync with his/her own peers - I found myself sad to know I could not meet the self-procalimed greatest Pot-Ohr in the world.
