Description

One boy, one boat, one tiger ...

After the tragic sinking of a cargo ship, a solitary lifeboat remains bobbing on the wild, blue Pacific. The only survivors from the wreck are a sixteen-year-old boy named Pi, a hyena, a zebra (with a broken leg), a female orang-utan - and a 450-pound Royal Bengal tiger. The scene is set for one of the most extraordinary and best-loved works of fiction in recent years.

Fresh, original, smart, devious, and crammed with absorbing lore' -- Margaret Atwood 'Vivid and entrancing.' -- Sunday Telegraph
