Summary :

"Being the History of His Peculiar Life at Home and Astonishing Adventures in Foreign Parts; Never Before Printed".

John Dolittle, physician, of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh, has learned from the ancient parrot Polynesia how to talk to animals. His practice as a doctor of humans has suffered, but his fame as an animal doctor has reached even to darkest Africa. When a message arrives from the monkeys there begging for his help, he sets off with his friends and helpmates Dab-Dab the duck, Jip the dog, Gub-Gub the pig, Polynesia, and the owl Too-Too, to Africa, where he meets the unhappy Prince Bumpo Kahbooboo of the Jolliginki Tribe, and learns of a rare animal whose whereabouts only the monkeys know...the mysterious Pushmi-Pullyu.
