The Story of Doctor Dolittle- Hugh Lofting



John Dolittle loves animals. Possibly more than people. His doctor’s office is filled with mice, rabbits, pigs, and parrots, so much so that his patients have started to worry. But when he discovers the ability to speak with animals, his life turns upside down as he is launched into newfound fame.

Soon, he finds himself invited to travel to Africa as an animal expert, where his real adventures begin amongst monkeys, epidemics, pirates, and the mysterious pushmi-pullyu.
