9780099265931: Dr Dolittle Stories (Red Fox Fiction)

Eight complete stories about the famous Doctor who could talk to the animals. An excellent introduction which highlights all the most memorable incidents: the way he realises his gifts with animals, his meeting with the Pushmi-Pullyu, and how he sets off to sea. His is an entrancing world and the reader is soon involved with all the animal characters, Gub-Gub the pig, Jip the Dog, Too Too the owl. A fine omnibus edition.

Review:

The magnificent Doctor Dolittle and his extraordinary exploits with animals are the stuff of pure legend, without which no child's bookshelf would be complete. Here, Olga Fricker has taken some of the most wondrous chapters from Hugh Lofting's 12 separate Dr Dolittle books, presenting them as a treasury that will surely delight children of all ages.

From the famous two-headed pushmepullme to the more familiar creatures the Doctor encounters on his amazing voyage across the globe, Doctor Dolittle never ceases to astound and amaze as his talent for talking to the animals gives rise to magical adventures that whisk the reader into a land of dreams.

Illustrated with original drawings--never before published--by Lofting himself, Doctor Dolittle Stories is an excellent introduction to the famous tales, but is equally as impressive as a collection in its own right.

Review:

"A work of genius. It is the first real children's classic since Alice" (Hugh Walpole)

"Any child who is not given the opportunity to make the acquaintance of this rotund, kindly and enthusiastic doctor/naturalist and all of his animal friends will miss out on something important" (Jane Goodall)
