The jolly party meets with more adventures than they had anticipated, including surviving a shipwreck, exploring a floating island, seeing the doctor crowned king of the Popsipetel, and a journey undersea in the "hold" of the Great Glass Sea-snail.
Since 1920, children all over the world have read the Doctor Dolittle stories with devotion and pleasure.

"A delightful travel log"
This is a lovely, meandering account of Dr. D.'s adventures in the south Atlantic. Not exactly action-packed, but full of wonderfully quirky details. The reader does a fine job with the animal voices, although some of the language and accents may be difficult for very young listeners.
"Difficult to understand"
My children have repeatedly listened to the Story of Doctor Dolittle and have found it very easy to follow (age range 4-7). Nadia Mays has a very delightful, warm, and crisp presentation. However, this narrator has a very "gravelly" voice, which makes his words difficult to understand. My children can't follow it at all, despite my attempts to present it to them on numerous occasions. This is unfortunate, because this book is intended for a younger audience.
"what a great story"
great narration interesting story worth the time for a listen even if you have no children
