9780099582489: The Story of Doctor Dolittle (Vintage Childrens Classics)

‘Many years ago – when our grandfathers were little children – there was a doctor and his name was Dolittle’

Dr Dolittle lives in Puddleby-on-the-Marsh with his friends Dab-Dab the duck, Jip the dog, Gub-Gub the baby pig, Too-Too the owl, the parrot Polynesia, as well as rabbits in the pantry, white mice in the piano and a crocodile in the fish pond. Why do the animals love Dolittle so? Its because he can speak their language, and because he's the best animal doctor for miles around. When the monkeys in Africa call on his aid, Doctor Dolittle sets off on an marvellous voyage, encountering bad-tempered kings, fearsome pirates and the mysterious pushmi-pullyu along the way.

Includes exclusive material: In the Backstory you can learn about the different ways that animals talk to each other!
