ABOUT THE BOOK

Hugh John Lofting (1886–1947), an English American writer with a civil engineering background, is best known for creating the beloved character Doctor Dolittle in classic children's literature. Serving in World War I with the Irish Guards regiment, Lofting chose to write imaginative letters to his children instead of depicting war's brutality. These letters became the foundation for the immensely popular Doctor Dolittle series, which achieved classic status in children's literature. The first book, "The Story of Doctor Dolittle," published in 1920, became an instant success. Lofting's other works, including "The Story of Mrs. Tubbs," "Porridge Poetry," and "Noisy Nora," were also well-received by young readers. His sole work for adults, "Victory for the Slain," is a poignant narrative poem about the futility of war.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hugh Lofting's first book in the Doctor Dolittle series introduces John Dolittle, a respected physician in Puddleby-on-the-Marsh. He discovers his ability to communicate with animals, leading to a growing menagerie that drives away human clients. Embracing veterinary practice, he travels to Africa to cure a monkey epidemic but faces financial ruin and shipwreck. Rescued by monkeys, he discovers a rare creature, the pushmi-pullyu, offering the promise of wealth. Amidst adventures in Jolliginki and encounters with pirates, Dolittle's compassion and courage shine.
