Dream of the Red Chamber, one of the four great classical novels of Chinese literature, written by Cao Xueqin retold for children. Illustrations in colour by Shirley Chiang. Baoyu hopes to marry his childhood sweetheart, Daiyu. Daiyu is beautiful and talented, very sensitive, and physically fragile. It is a huge shock to him when he realises too late that his family has planned that he should marry Baochai instead, a lovely girl but not his true love. Baoyu’s family is fast losing its fame and fortune. One by one, Baoyu’s female friends, relatives and servants are being married off or sold, and he realises just how much he values the qualities of the women in his life. Will Baoyu surrender to life’s harsh realities? What can he do to protect the women he loves from violence, neglect and abuse? Full of a fiery passion for love and beauty, Dream of the Red Chamber is the story of a young man in search of what is truly important to him.
