The Story of Doctor Dolittle is very popular, but did you know there are several books in the series? In each book the good doctor talks to the animals and has interesting adventures. In one book a seal in a circus was lonely and wanted to go back to the sea. After dressing her up as a lady they went on a bus and had a chat with other passengers. When they finally reached the ocean he threw her in, but his troubles weren't over, because he was soon accused of drowning his wife.
Oz, the Complete Hardcover Collection is the series of books that follows the well known movie The Wizard of Oz. As the series continues new mythical creatures are introduced as well as sweet little children. In the Marvelous Land of Oz, the little boy Tip made a Gump from two couches and pillows. When magic powder was sprinkled on the Gump he came to life and flew around.
