Once well-visited, well-liked, and well-off, Doctor Dolittle begins to lose patients as a result of his many pets. He does not really care, for he isn’t worried about money and he likes animals better anyway. His parrot, Polynesia, who can speak English, teaches Dr. Dolittle to speak her language, and eventually he can communicate with all animals. He soon becomes an animal doctor instead, and he becomes quite rich again as word spreads of amazing success. Soon even wild animals are showing up at his door for help, and Dr. Dolittle never turns anyone away. An amusing, entertaining story children will love to read themselves or have read to them.
