The Story of Doctor Dolittle

The Story of Doctor Dolittle

Author: Hugh Lofting Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/12/2019

Doctor Dolittle isn't a normal doctor . . . He doesn't treat humans - he treats animals instead! He loves animals so much that his busy house in Puddleby-on-the-Marsh is full of every creature imaginable - from parrots to pigs, monkeys to dogs and many more - and very soon he even learns how to speak their language. The doctor's animal friends are quick to tell him that the monkeys in Africa have become infected with a terrible disease, so with a team of trusty creatures by his side the kind-hearted doctor sets off on an action-packed adventure to save them. Hugh Lofting's The Story of Doctor Dolittle is one of the most fun, delightful and imaginative stories in children's literature. Featuring the eccentric doctor who learns to talk to animals, the novel has been adapted as a major film starring Robert Downey Jr., Emma Thompson and Selena Gomez. This beautiful paperback edition is illustrated with original line drawing from Hugh Lofting himself and contains engaging bonus material such as a quiz and a word search.

Peter Pan and Wendy

Peter Pan and Wendy

Author: J. M. Barrie Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 20/09/2018

This edition of J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan and Wendy was originally retold by May Byron for little people, with the approval of the author. It is a thrilling adventure for all ages; the story of the boy who refuses to grow up is a tale that never gets old. It follows the Darling children - Wendy, John and Michael - who befriend the magical Peter and are whisked away to the Never-Land, where the villainous Captain Hook and the brave Lost Boys await. Mabel Lucie Attwell's gentle illustrations and distinctive style have been the nursery staple of generations of children. Her illustrated edition of May Byron's abridged Peter Pan and Wendy was first published in 1921. Macmillan is proud to return Mabel Lucie Attwell's interpretation to print. With a beautiful foiled cover, this edition features black-and-white line illustrations and makes the perfect gift for children, and adults who refuse to grow up.
