Doctor Dolittle's Return is lighter and more comic than other Dolittle books. Tommy Stubbins waits for Doctor Dolittle's return from the Moon. When the Doctor returns he is anxious to write of what he has experienced. This proves more difficult than expected. The poignancy of the doctor's lunar experiences is juxtaposed with his hilarious attempts to be put into jail so he will be free of all responsibilities and will be able to write his book. Hugh John Lofting was a trained as a civil engineer and author who created the character of Doctor Dolittle; one of the classics of children's literature. Hugh Lofting's doctor from Puddleby-on-the-Marsh who could speak to animals first saw light in the author's illustrated letters to children, written from the trenches during World War I when actual news, he later said, was either too horrible or too dull. Eight more books followed, and after Lofting's death two more volumes, composed of short unpublished pieces, appeared.

The English-born American author Hugh Lofting was the creator of the beloved children's character of Doctor Dolittle, the eccentric, yet genial physician that can talk to the animals. The genesis of the series appeared in illustrated letters sent by Lofting to his children, while he was undergoing the horrors of the trenches in World War I, when news was “too horrible” to send. The Dolittle books are celebrated for their charming wit and the humorous treatment of the doctor’s bachelor household in Puddleby-on-the-Marsh. However, Lofting’s works provide a recurring message of pacifism and censure of warmongering, which is most evident in Lofting’s anti-war poem ‘Victory for the Slain’. For the first time in publishing history, this edition presents Lofting’s complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts and concise introductions. (Version 1) * Beautifully illustrated with images relating to Lofting’s life and works * Concise introductions to the novels and other texts * All of the Doctor Dolittle books, including ALL of Lofting’s original illustrations * Rare novels appearing for the first time in digital publishing * Images of how the books were first published, giving your eReader a taste of the original texts * Excellent formatting of the texts * Lofting’s other children’s books, digitised here for the first time, including ‘Porridge Poetry’ and ‘Noisy Nora’ * Lofting’s works for adults – available in no other collection * Includes the 1924 pacifist essay ‘Children and Internationalism’ * The anti-war poem ‘Victory for the Slain’ * Ordering of texts into chronological order and genres Please visit www.delphiclassics.com to browse through our range of exciting titles CONTENTS: The Doctor Dolittle Books The Story of Doctor Dolittle (1920) The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle (1922) Doctor Dolittle’s Post Office (1923) Doctor Dolittle’s Circus (1924) Doctor Dolittle’s Zoo (1925) Doctor Dolittle’s Caravan (1926) Doctor Dolittle’s Garden (1927) Doctor Dolittle in the Moon (1928) Gub Gub’s Book (1932) Doctor Dolittle’s Return (1933) Doctor Dolittle and the Secret Lake (1948) Doctor Dolittle and the Green Canary (1950) Doctor Dolittle’s Puddleby Adventures (1952) Other Children’s Books The Story of Mrs. Tubbs (1923) Porridge Poetry (1924) Noisy Nora (1929) The Twilight of Magic (1930) Tommy, Tilly, and Mrs. Tubbs (1936) Works for Adults Children and Internationalism (1924) Victory for the Slain (1942) Please visit www.delphiclassics.com to browse through our range of exciting titles or to purchase this eBook as a Parts Edition of individual eBooks
