Book Association: Life of Pi

Life of Pi
So this month we are reading The Life of Pi by Yann Martell, so that lead me to wonder...any other classic animal books out there for adult readers?  Why do we let the kids have all the fun with Charlotte's Web or Black Beauty?

So here's what I came up with.
Call of the Wild by Jack London
The Call of the Wild
The other wolf/dog book London wrote

Animal Farm by George Orwell
Animal Farm
The source of farmers' nightmares ever since

Aesop's Fables by Aesop
Aesop's Fables (Oxford World's Classics)
Too bad Aesop didn't profit like Disney did when they had animals teach morals to people

Jaws by Peter Benchley
 Remember "We're going to need a bigger boat"? *

Moby-Dick by Herman Melville
I think Captain Ahab should follow Quint and Brody's lead about that boat 

Next week on Book Association: Life of Pi Part 2 - The Nautical Round

*yeah I know that was the movie version, but creative license and all that.
