Summary
Chronicles the adventures of a kind-hearted doctor, who is fond of animals and understands their language, as he travels to Africa with some of his favorite pets to cure the monkeys of a terrible sickness.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: When Polynesia, Doctor Dolittle's parrot, teaches him how to speak animal language, it seems a good idea.  But animals come from far and wide until Doctor Dolittle has no more time for his human patients--and no more money.  The animals grow hungry, the house is a mess, and the animals begin to worry.

Until one day, a swallow arrives in Puddleby-on-the-Marsh where the good Doctor lives, with news that the monkeys of Africa are ill--and only the doctor who talks to animals can save them.  Doctor Dolittle, along with such good friends as Jip, his loyal dog, and Dab-Dab, his housekeeper duck, are now faced with great danger and challenges on their journey to Africa to save the monkeys.

This is the story of Doctor Dolittle's adventures and his eventual return home with the miraculous animal who joined the family and provided for them for the rest of their lives.  No child should be without this classic story of a misunderstood doctor who finds great understanding and affection among the animals.  Produced by the world's foremost creators of radio entertainment and brilliantly read by Alan Bennett,  Doctor Dolittle and all his animal friends come magically to life in this charming presentation. Listeners young and old will be enthralled and delighted by The Story of Doctor Dolittle.
