    It still seems hard to remember that this, the first Dr Dolittle book and indeed the whole series were first thought up during the death and carnage of the First World War Serving as an officer in the Irish Guards Hugh Lofting when writing home to his family wanted something lighter for his children to read of instead of the brutality he saw around him, and so seeing

    This is a must have in anyone s library A true classic a delightful story of the man that can talk to the animals Original print versions now rather un pc, particularly the sequels, but written of their time Yes there is than one Dr Dolittle book Go seek them out All incredible reads.

    Written for children before prejudice was invented, a really easy pleasant read.Interesting characters that are easily imaginable.There are certain terms used, that will inevitably cause someone some offence, but if read correctly you should recognise them as compliments mostly

    Yeah, I liked this, though not as much as I thought I would Less fun than the films, but details I think it s of a kids book than I expected, but the older youngster 10 11 etc would probably enjoy it, rather than a younger one, 7 8 I was curious about reading the book, as I d only seen the films, so I m glad I did.

    Lovely introduction to the Dr Doolittle books if you haven t already read them I had several as a child, but amazingly, not this first one It describes how Dr Doolittle learns to speak the languages of the animals and then tells about his first big adventure Lovely.
