Grade 4-8-Doctor Dolittle sets sail towards the mysterious Spider Monkey Island accompanied by by nine-and-a-half-year-old Tommy Stubbins. By Hugh Lofting. Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.

From AudioFile
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...

From Publishers Weekly
Dramatic changes are in store for New York native Katie Roberts (introduced in Love You, Soldier) when her war-widow mother marries Sam Gold in 1947. Before Katie and her mom move to Sam's ranch in Texas, Katie's elderly neighbor gives her a leather notebook; Hest's novel and Lamut's pictures are relayed as Katie's entries, doodles and pasted-in snapshots. An unusually exuberant narrator, Katie confides her anxieties about entering a new school ("I can see myself now, ALL ALONE, me and my egg sandwich..."); her triumphs (she is editor of the class paper); her uneasiness at her mother's pregnancy ("I wanted to give her a big hug and ask her to read me a story the way she used to, but another part of me wanted to yell WHAT WOULD DADDY SAY?"); and her concerns about Sam's desire to adopt her. Keenly-and...
