Charming and funny, and I love the illustrations. I am surprised that they have so many adventures. I didn't expect it to be so suspenseful. I like the style of writing very much. It's simple and direct, doesn't try hard to be cute or to send a message, but it accomplishes both very nicely. I'm looking forward to reading more of them.

Just finished reading the Adventures of Doctor Doolittle on my Kindle Reader--it was a free offering and I managed to read it off my Android telephone. The story is fun and imaginative, mostly an adventure quest where a young boy meets a mentor because of his love of animals. They take a trip to Spider Monkey Island, a floating island off the coast of Brazil and run into many experiences.

Although I tend to really like this series by Hugh Lofting, this particular set of stories isn't as strong as some of the other freestanding works. If this is your first foray into the world of (the original) Dr. Dolittle, I would start with another selection first.

A collection of short stories, not as compelling as the full-lengh novels. On the other hand, there are very few children's short stories about an adventurous maggot!
