The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle

Hugh Lofting


After discovering an injured squirrel, young Tommy Stubbins is introduced to Doctor Dolittle. Enamored by the Doctor’s ability to speak with animals and his wonderful house full of creatures from around the world, Tommy convinces the Doctor to take him as an apprentice. Together with Polynesia the parrot, Jip the dog, and an African prince named Bumpo, they set out in search of the famed naturalist Long Arrow, son of Golden Arrow, who has gone missing.

This is the second book in Hugh Lofting’s Doctor Dolittle series. It was awarded the 1923 Newbery Medal.
