John Dolittle loves animals. Possibly more than people. His doctor's office is filled with mice, rabbits, pigs, and parrots, so much so that his patients have started to worry. But when he discovers the ability to speak with animals, his life turns upside down as he is launched into newfound fame. Soon, he finds himself invited to travel to Africa as an animal expert, where his real adventures begin amongst monkeys, epidemics, pirates, and the mysterious pushmi-pullyu. 'The Story of Doctor Dolittle' is the first entry in the internationally renowned series that brought one of literature's most beloved children's characters to life. Hopelessly charming and wonderfully brilliant, discover the world that inspired Robert Downey Junior's ┬┤Doctor Dolittle' and Jim Carrey's 'Ace Ventura: Pet Detective'."Doctor Dolittle" is a children's fantasy series set in Victorian England, featuring the famous English physician who can speak to animals. His adventures are compelling, humourous, and quite extraordinary, turning the series into a children's classic. Adapted into numerous animations and movies, the most recent one being the 2020's version starring Robert Downey Jr. and Antonio Banderas.
