The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle was the second of Hugh Lofting's
Doctor Dolittle books. The novel is divided into six parts where
Doctor Dolittle meets Tommy Stubbins, the young son of a cobbler,
who becomes his new assistant. Tommy learns how to speak animal
languages and becomes involved in the Doctor's quest to find Long
Arrow, the greatest naturalist in the world. The Voyages of Doctor
Dolittle takes the reader to the Mediterranean, South America, and
even under the sea. Hugh John Lofting was a British author who
created the character of Doctor Dolittle - one of the classics of
children's literature. His early education was at Mount St Mary's
College in Sheffield, after which he went to the United States,
completing a degree in civil engineering at the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology. He enlisted in the Irish Guards to serve
in World War I. Not wishing to write to his children of the
brutality of the war, he wrote imaginative letters that were the
foundation of the Doctor Dolittle novels.
