Book Review: The Story of Doctor Dolittle by Hugh Lofting — 4 Comments

  1. I am sorely uneducated where the children’s classics are concerned. I had no idea that there were rascist undertones in Dr Dolittle. I guess that is partly to do with the time and period in which the book was written but I still find such blatant rascism shocking. Still beyond that it sounds like it has some great humourous moments.

  2. there is racism sadly , using terms like savages and depicting the Africans as
    not being very bright, thankfully Africans disprove these ridiculous stereotypes
    we should not feed stereotypes to kids all cultures are beautiful.
