商品簡介

作者簡介

Doctor Dolittle is one of the most delightful and fascinating characters in children’s literature. This Macmillan Collector’s Library edition is illustrated with Hugh Lofting’s own drawings, and includes updated material and an afterword by remarkable author Philip Ardagh.

Doctor Dolittle’s house in Puddleby-on-the-Marsh is full to the brim with eccentric characters, from Polynesia the parrot to Gub-Gub the pig. After learning the language of all his animals, the gracious and kind-hearted doctor hears that the monkeys in Africa have become inflicted with a terrible disease. So with a team of trusty creatures by his side, the doctor sets sail on an action packed adventure to save them.

Hugh Lofting was born in Maidenhead in 1886. He studied engineering in London and America and his work as a civil engineer took him all over the world. He interrupted his career to enlist in the army and fight in WW1. Wanting to shield his children from the horrors of combat which included the fate of horses on the battlefields, he wrote to them instead about a kindly doctor who could talk to animals. After the war he settled with his family in Connecticut and it was from there that he published his Dr Dolittle Books. The Story of Dr Dolittle was published in 1920, followed by eleven more in the series. This highly acclaimed and prize winning author died in 1947
