Hugh Lofting wrote his first book in a series of letters to his children, from the trenches of the Great War.
Ten delightful books out of the many that comprise the Doctor Dolittle series; all I have been able to find in the many archives online, each one re-compiled and the illustrations restored to their rightful places.
Doctor Dolittle searches out his friend Mudface, the ancient turtle who lives in the Secret Lake in Africa. When the Doctor learns that Mudface has been buried during an earthquake, the journey becomes an emergency rescue mission. We will finally hear Mudface’s tale of the Great Flood, and learn about his rescue of two young humans – a good deed with far-reaching consequences.
