Audible Editor Reviews

Hugh Lofting's The Story of Dr. Dolittle reigns as the first in the beloved Dolittle series. While living with his spinster sister, the doctor realizes he can speak with animals, which leads him into plenty of trouble. David Case is one of the most engaging audio performers. His narration is crystal clear and upbeat, but his caricatures are the real delight. He is a one-man troop of actors, giving each line of dialogue totally unique attributes. When Case has this much fun with the story, so will listeners.

Publisher's Summary

No one loves and understands animals like the eccentric 19th-century physician Dr. Dolittle, who masters animal language with the help of Polynesia the parrot. After his human patients desert him, the kind-hearted doctor finds his calling in practicing animal medicine, and his fame spreads far and wide. When a terrible epidemic breaks out among monkeys in Africa, Dr. Dolittle sets out to save them, accompanied by some of his favorite pets. Thus begins the amusing, whimsical adventures of Dr. Dolittle and the animal kingdom.

Hugh Lofting, winner of the 1923 Newbery Medal for The Voyages of Dr. Dolittle, has a gifted knack for imbuing unique, distinct personalities in his characters, human and animal alike.
