The book is as good as I remember: the eccentric Dr Dolittle learns the language of animals from his parrot, the centenarian Polynesia, and becomes an animal doctor, prescribing among other things spectacles for a near-sighted horse. He keeps white mice in his piano and an alligator in the pond. One day he receives a call for help from the monkeys and apes of Africa - they are dying from a mysterious plague. So he sails off, with a swallow as navigator. He clashes with the King of Jolliginki, but is helped by the likeable Prince Bumpo, who is addicted to fairytales. There are more thrilling adventures on the way back, and a poetic moment when Jip the dog stands on the poop smelling out for a lost fishermen - he smells "tar; Spanish onions; kerosene oil; wet raincoats; crushed laurel-leaves; rubber burning; lace-curtains being washed" and much more. David Case is a likeable and ironic reader, but unfortunately he just doesn't know what to do with the animals. Surely the solution is to give them human voices?
