From the back:
Have you ever wished that you could hear your horse’s deepest secrets? Or dreamt of having a pet crocodile..one who has promised not to eat you? Or have you ever imagined how amazing it would be to hang out in Africa with the King of the beasts and be able to communicate? Well, thanks to the teachings of his parrot, Polynesia, Dr. Dolittle has done all those things and much, much more! When he learns of an epidemic in the monkey community in Africa, Dr. Dolittle embarks on a journey to save them. Along the way, he will encounter African royalty, pirates, the mysterious pushmi-pullyu, and a world full of adventure.

Mine:
What a wonderful story for the imagination (although I like the original Dr. Dolittle movie with Rex Harrison). What a wonderful adventure he embarks on to help the monkey colony. He encounters many obstacles along the way, but somehow with the help of all the animals that he has learned to talk to he can pass through most of them easily. The animals even help him get out of the way. I’ve always loved this movie, but the book is even better, since it really does tell you the background of how he learned to “talk to the animals”. He was actually a people doctor first before learning the languages of the animals and becoming a doctor for them.

Adapted version of the classic Doctor Doolittle. This version captures all of the important elements of the Doctor's ability with animals; and, the characterizations of all animals named in the story. For children with extra needs, and children who need to polish their "word bank", this version is a winner!
