(4.7 stars; 67 reviews)

Doctor Dolittle's Post Office is the exciting third in the series of Hugh Lofting's Doctor Dolittle books. As usual, the Doctor has many adventures while helping his animal friends and the people he meets. At the start book, Doctor Dolittle gets help from the sea birds to help to capture a notorious slave trader and free his captives, then organizes the postal service of a small African kingdom, Fantippo, ruled over by King Koko. He does this of course with the help of all his animal friends especially the birds. He discovers a hidden island populated by peace loving creatures, gets thrown into another African jail, invents animal alphabets, and defeats at least two armies. Each of the animals in the Dolittle family also tells a quaint and personal story. The postal program grows into a worldwide postal and publishing service for the benefit of animals everywhere. ..Whew! what an adventure! . (6 hr 54 min)

Thanks for bringing back this childhood book to me


(5 stars)

Excellent narration of Dr. Doolittle! I am so sad that Hugh Lofting has no more that I haven't read. This has been very entertaining!

Decent, yet outdated story


(3.5 stars)

The reading is great of course, that’s why it gets 3.5 stars. However, the story is very… strange! Nearly the entire story is one giant piece of racist propaganda. Unlike some of the other “Doctor Dolittle” stories, this one does not appear to use an especially outdated racial slur, although we do have some… questionable opinions and phrases in this story. I absolutely despise the actual book, but it is read very well, again, that’s why it gets 3.5 stars. Would not recommend for children, instead, I would recommend this for people who want to know just how racist people used to be (apologies, this review ended up longer than I actually wanted, sorry)!

definitely deserved 5 stars
