A wonderful book for learning about the principles of Taoism. The author uses the world of Winnie the Pooh to inform about different parts and concepts of Taoism. I highly recommend this for something to read on a lazy Sunday.

Basically, this novel centers around Ayla, a Homo sapiens girl who is taken in by a Neanderthal clan, and the challenges she faces living with their strict rules and different culture.
