Children • 2.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 1999

To embark on a voyage with Dr. Doolittle is to enjoy a vast world of natural history and gentle satire amid a warm, loving sea of imagination. The creatures with whom the good doctor converses come growling, squeaking, or quacking in Alan Bennett’s marvelously adaptable voice. He reads with intensity all the tongue-twisting nomenclatures that Lofting employs. We are at liberty to wholeheartedly sail with that menagerie to an island where, with the assistance of parrots, we may fight a war and then sail home in the shell of a snail. We could ask for no finer adventure. S.B.S. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
