Doctor Dolittle is the main character of a series of books written and illustrated by Hugh Lofting. Beyond their original publication, they have only been republished in somewhat abridged and edited form, due to concerns about political correctness, in particular the portrayal of African characters. Currently, the only Doctor Doolitte book in print is an anthology, consisting of sections taken from a number of the books.
