I view this book as a merging of two distinct stories. The first story is a unique juxtaposition of zoology and comparative religions. It points out the difficulty of pinning down one specific set of beliefs as "the truth." Second story is an almost mythological epic of one boy lost at sea with only animals for companions. The two stories combine somewhat awkwardly, but the overall effect is a decidedly positive one.
