Time for a Tiger (in a Lifeboat)?

Yann Martel is looking for an illustrator for a new edition of Life of Pi to be published by Canongate Books next year. And hey, it could be YOU!

Do you find illustrations an enhancement or a distraction? I love them and think it's a shame that so few books for "grown-ups" are illustrated. Maybe that's why I appreciate Mervyn Peake and Edward Carey so much?

Times cartoonist Peter Brookes ponders the relationship between illustrations and text.
