My book report is on Doctor Dolittle. The author of thisbook is Hugh Lofting. Doctor Dolittle talks to the animalsand is also kind of like a veterinarian. He knows most of theanimal languages. He really calls himself a naturalist whichstudies plants and animals. He lives in Puddleby, England.
He has an assistant named Stubbins. Doctor Dolittle wantsto learn the language of the shellfish because they are one ofthe oldest animals on earth. He thinks that they can tell himsecrets of the past.
Doctor Dolittle decided to give up on theshellfish language for a while. Stubbins and the Doctor play agame that you close your eyes and flip the pages of an atlasand put a pencil down on the page. The place that he pickedwas Spidermonkey Island. The purple bird of paradise tellshim that the greatest naturalist is Long Arrow and that helives at Spidermonkey Island. Doctor Dolittle goes on avoyage to Spidermonkey Island. The Doctor goes and hesaves Long Arrow and 9 other Indians from a cave that arock had covered the entrance.
Doctor Dolittle found a wayto dig under the rock and make it fall. Another tribe on theother side of the island wanted to go to war with thepeaceful indians. They were going to fight because they wereto lazy to do work because the island was floating South andgetting cold. The Doctor, Long Arrow, and another manbasically won the war for the tribe. They swung clubs andknocked everyone out of the way. Then Polynesia(a talkingparrot) brought millions of black parrots from SouthAmerica. Most of the other tribe got their ears bit off.
Doctor Dolittle was made king of the tribe. They changedhis name to Jong Thinkalot because they didnt think Dolittlefit him. Doctor wanted to go but he had to stay and teachthe tribe to do things more modern. When he was crowneda rock fell into a dead volcano and it made the island sink.
The Doctor decided to leave Spidermonkey Island and goback to Puddleby. They rode back in a giant snail with aglass shell. He taught Doctor Dolittle the shellfish language.
This was a good and interesting book. I wish that it neverwould have ended. I recommend this book to everyone wholikes reading about people talking to animals and longbooks.
