The Story of Doctor Dolittle (1920)-- The one that started it all, it's a simple story in which we meet gentle John Dolittle, M.D., a physician with a heart for animals, and read of how, with the help of wise, old Polynesia the parrot, he learns to speak their languages. When a relayed call for help from some sick monkeys takes the Doctor on his first sea voyage, he and the reader are introduced to African Royalty, aloof lions, Barbary Pirates, talented sparrows, and the very exotic "Pushmi-Pullyu"...
