Originally written in 1920. The original Disney movie followed this book somewhat, the more recent movie did not follow it at all. The book is better than either movie. Through the agency of animal friends Dr. Dolittle learns to talk to the animals. His human friends are most unhappy with a house full of animal patients. So when Dr. Dolittle hears of a horrible epidemic among African monkeys he sails off to help - engendering and finding many adventures. The pushmi-pullyu and Tommy Stubbins are in this book as well.

Doctor Dolittle has filled his house with so many of his animal friends that his "people" patients can bear it no longer. In fact, he likes the animals better and he can talk to them too! One day a mysterious call comes from Africa--the monkeys are all dying from a horrible epidemic. To the rescue! Doctor Dolittle sails off to help the monkeys and there finds the extraordinary two-headed Pushmi-Pullyu.
