The Story of the Stone by Cao Xuegin is a family saga so epic it is spread across four volumes. Within the traditions of Chinese culture you follow Bao-yu as he grows up surrounded by his family and their world of Buddhist understanding.
If classical literature is not your thing then why not celebrate by taking an adventure by travelling along the Yangste River from the mouth to its source. Along the way you will discover the cities and people that live by it. A journey you can take from your own arm chair.
And finally for something different we have chosen The Year of the Hare by Arto Pasilinna (we said it would be different). This international bestseller tells the story of a Journalist who wanders Finland looking after his Hare. A heart warming book to celebrate the year of our little fury friends.
Happy Rabbit Everyone!
