About the Author: Hugh John Lofting was an English author trained as a civil engineer, who created the classic children’s character of Doctor Dolittle. Dolittle first appeared in Lofting’s illustrated letters to his children, written from the British Army trenches in World War I. He travelled widely as a civil engineer, before enlisting in the Irish Guards regiment of the British Army to serve in the First World War. Not wishing to write to his children about the brutality of the war, he wrote imaginative letters which later became the foundation of the successful Doctor Dolittle novels for children.
