About the book
Inspired by Hugh Lofting's classic tales of Doctor Dolittle, his son Christopher Lofting has updated his father's story for today's readers- still with all the charm of the original.
Nine-and-a-half year old Tommy Stubbins is about to go on an adventure of a lifetime!
Being assistant to the genius (and eccentric) Doctor Dolittle means no day is quite the same, especially when they set sail on the high seas.
After a hair-raising shipwreck lands them on the floating Spidermonkey Island, they meet the mysterious Great Glass Sea Snail who could change their lives forever...
The new movie Dolittle is coming February 2020, starring Robert Downey Jr.
