About the Author

Doctor Dolittle was born while British civil engineer Hugh Lofting (1886-1947) was serving in the trenches during World War I. When the war news was overwhelmingly depressing or tedious, Lofting wrote fanciful illustrated letters describing the adventures of a physician who could communicate with animals. The first Doctor Dolittle book was published in 1920 and was eventually followed by nine sequels plus two posthumous editions of previously unpublished pieces.
