Monkeys mend, dogs sweep the floor, ducks do the dusting and owls keep the books . . . and it all seems perfectly normal in the incredible world of Dr. Dolittle in the small English village of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh. Normal to him perhaps, but a little frightening to the doctor’s human patients, who abandon him, leaving him free to enter the world of the more-accepting animal kingdom.
Talking to animals is just the beginning of adventure for the dignified doctor who exchanges his quiet and respected life for a walk among the wildlife. Dr. Dolittle becomes the champion for the plight of animals worldwide, most notably a band of sick African monkeys. His journey to aid their plight brings him into contact with animals previously unknown, such as the odd Pushmi-Pullyu and the shy two-headed unicorn, not to mention dangerous Barbary pirates. Can Dr. Dolittle survive the pirates, the untrusting King of Jollingingki, and the treacherous open ocean? Aided by his few human friends, Tommy Stubbins and Matthew Mugg, the understanding Prince Bumpo and with his delightful parrot, Polynesia, at his side, he triumphs.
This fantastical tale by English writer Hugh Lofting, originally written for his own children as a personal literary escape for himself during his wartime service, has delighted children worldwide for generations.
Heralded as a “classic of children’s literature,” by generations of critics, Hugh Lofting’s “Dr. Dolittle” lives on to tell of “his peculiar life and astonishing adventures.” It’s your turn to set sail.
Ideal for children, teachers, students, the whole family and even the young at heart.
