A picture for the book The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle

The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle

Hugh Lofting's sequel to The Story of Doctor Dolittle, which first introduced us to the very special man who could talk to the animals and come to their aid. The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle takes us to Polynesia and beyond, far from his home of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh. The book, written and illustrated by Lofting, was published in 1922. Its subtitle, "The Popsipetel Picture-History of King John Thinkalot," invites us to embark on the doctor's fanciful adventures.
