Summary

Doctor Dolittle, a little, lovable, old doctor, has so many animal pets spread throughout his house and garden that patients will not come to him anymore. As a result, he becomes poorer and poorer. But he occupies nearly all of his time as the animals' doctor, and soon discovers that he can talk to the animals; Jip the dog, Dab Dab the duck, and Polynesia the parrot.

Critic reviews

"May attempts to give each animal its species-specific voice, and she succeeds with enthusiasm, levity, and gaiety." ( AudioFile)
"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)

Terrific!

My 6 yo boy and 4 yo daughter enjoyed this immensely, recounting it excitedly to their dad each night at the dinner table. Excellent narration complementing a delightful fast-paced story.
