    I liked that this book has all three first books in it. It makes it so much easier to read. I read this book in hours because I really liked it. I read this right before watching the movie. Spoiler alert: It's nothing like the movie! Well, this book is about what Doctor Dolittle's adventures are like. He sets sail with a boy named Tommy Stubbins, how the doctor came to talking to animals, and how the doctor created a post office based on animals I liked this book, and if you are interested in books about animals, you will too.
