The Story of Doctor Dolittle



This beautiful HarperCollins Children's Classics edition is perfect for every bookshelf.

Headache? Tummy troubles? A patient could not hope for a better doctor than John Dolittle, MD, of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh - not if one searched the entire kingdom - the animal kingdom, that is.

Whether curing a horse in need of spectacles or a poodle that has eaten too much cake, Doctor Dolittle knows just the thing to do because he can, in fact, ask them. Creatures come from far and wide to meet him, until one day a plea comes from across the ocean - setting the good doctor and his animal friends on course for a great adventure.

Doctor Dolittle, famous for his ability to speak to animals, has spoken to the hearts of readers since he first appeared more than a century ago, beloved for the very love he shows animals the world over.
