"Doctor Dolittles Garden" was written and illustrated by Hugh Lofting. This is part of a series of Doctor Dolittle books Lofting wrote. Originally published in 1927, this is a 1955 re-printing of this well loved childrens' story.
Doctor Dolittle's assistant, Tommy Stubbins, reports on Professor Quetch, curator of the Dog Museum in the Home for Crossbred Dogs. Meanwhile, the doctor has learnt insect languages and hears ancient tales of a giant race of insects. Fascinated, the doctor plans a voyage to find them — but before he does so, one arrives in his garden.
This vintage, hard-cover book has a orange, fully colored, illustrated, cloth front cover. The spine is lightly faded and has the title and an illustration of the Dr. in dark blue ink. The book is 252 pages in length and is in very good vintage condition. There is some very mild bumping on the covers. The pages are clean and the binding is tight.
A great summer reading book for any elementary or junior high school child's reading list.
