Narrator James Langton embodies the exuberant fun and charm of three classic stories: "The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle," "The Story of Doctor Dolittle," and "Doctor Dolittle's Post Office." Langston's tone reflects the heartfelt emotions of the endearing, excitable, eccentric naturalist who communicates with animals. Sweeping listeners along on thrilling world-travel adventures, Langton creates distinct and memorable voices for each human and animal the good doctor meets. A hundred-year-old series is bound to have some cultural sensitivity issues, and this one certainly does. Although this new audiobook has been updated to remove the most offensive language, it does still reflect a white male colonialist attitude. Nevertheless, Dolittle's peaceful approach to the world and all its creatures makes his adventures worth listening to and discussing. S.C. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2020]
