Once upon a time, there was John Dolittle, M.D. All the folks, young and old, knew him well by sight. And whenever he walked down the street everyone would say, “There goes the Doctor! He‟s a clever man.” And the animals and the children would run up and follow him; and the crows that lived in the church-tower would caw and nod their heads. The house he lived in was quite small; but his garden was very large with a wide lawn and stone seats and weeping-willows hanging over. He kept many kinds of pets. Besides the gold fish in the pond at the bottom of his garden, he had rabbits in the pantry, white mice in his piano, a squirrel in the linen closet and a hedgehog in the cellar. He had a cow, a calf, an old lame horse, chickens and pigeons, and two lambs. But his favourite were Dab-Dab the duck, Jip the dog, Polynesia the parrot and the Owl Too-Too
