Product Description

About the Author

Hugh Lofting was born in Maidenhead in 1886. As a child he kept a miniature zoo and wildlife museum in his mother's linen cupboard and enjoyed making up stories for his family. He later studied engineering in London and the United States, and visited Canada, Africa and the West Indies. After his marriage in 1912 he settled in the United States. Hugh Lofting fought in the trenches during World War I and it was whilst observing the lack of compassion shown to the horses on the battlefields that the idea for Doctor Dolittle was born. He was the main character in letters Hugh sent home from the front to entertain his children. The successful publication of The Story of Doctor Dolittle in 1920 was followed by a further eleven books. In 1923 Hugh Lofting was awarded the Newbery Medal. He died in 1947.

Format: Paperback
Dr Dolittle has a family of unusual animals living in his house and he can talk to them all. He goes on a holiday for a week by the sea. The owner of the lighthouse falls and Dr Dolittle saves the day as he helps the man to get better. All the animals play an important part with help from the owner's canary. I like the pushmipulyu and especially Dab Dab the duck. His adventures are very old and this story has been retold and is really fun to read.
