Story of Doctor Dolittle, School And Library by Lofting, Hugh; Hague, Michael (ILT)
"You know, Doctor," said the horse, "that vet over the hill knows nothing at all. He has been treating me six weeks now--for spavins. What I need is SPECTACLES. I am going blind in one eye. There's no reason why horses shouldn't wear glasses, the same as people. But that stupid man over the hill never even looked at my eyes. He kept on giving me big pills.
Accompanied by his devoted animal friends and a new acquaintance -- the two-headed pushmi-pullyu -- Doctor Dolittle heads to Africa, where a serious epidemic is affecting the primate population. This entertaining classic about the eccentric doctor who could speak to animals has charmed readers of all ages for generations. 27 black-and-white illustrations.
Foreword by Patricia C. McKissack and Fredrick L. McKissack. Afterword by Peter Glassman. When a swallow arrives in Puddleby-on-the-Marsh with the news that the monkeys of Africa are ill and only the doctor who talks with animals can save them, Doctor Dolittle and such good friends as Jip, his loyal dog, and Dab-Dab, his housekeeper duck, face their greatest challenge. Together they must sail to Africa, battle a band of cutthroat pirates, flee across a gorge on a bridge made of acrobatic apes, and convince the king of the beasts that even he must help an animal in need. With nearly fifty full-page pictures from Michael Hague and the McKissacks‒ artful reworking of the dilemma faced by Prince Bumpo, this treasured story is now available in a deluxe edition that all families will want to explore again and again.
