The Voyages of Dr Dolittle

Written by Hugh Lofting

Part of the Collins Classics Series

The Voyages of Dr Dolittle Synopsis

HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics. After rescuing an injured squirrel, Tommy Stubbins is directed to the offices of Doctor John Dolittle and is amazed to discover a house full of exotic creatures. Under the tutelage of Polynesia the parrot, Tommy becomes the Doctor's assistant, learning how to understand animals and accompanying the Doctor on an adventurous voyage. The motley band of naturalists sets sail for Spidermonkey Island, traversing rough seas and mountainous lands, and encountering warring tribes of Popsipetels and Bagjagderags, as well as a host of sparrows, porpoises, unusual insects and rare sea snails along the way. The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle was published in 1922 as the sequel to Lofting's much-loved classic The Story of Doctor Dolittle. Full of warmth and charm, it has been lauded as a successor to Lewis Carroll in its vibrant depiction of animals, and will delight younger and mature audiences alike.
