Hugh Lofting - LIFE STORIES
 
 
1/14/1886     Doctor Dolittle & Pushmi-Pullyu Politics
On this day in 1886 Hugh Lofting, writer of the Doctor Dolittle series, was born. Dab-Dab, Gub-Gub, Too-Too, Jip, Polynesia, et al. of Puddlesby-by-the-Marsh were originally created in Lofting's letters home to his children from the Front in WWI. Being "the first real children's classic since Alice" did not prevent some recent, politically correct editors from making adjustments, however.
