The Cranky Old Reader

I'm a Goodreads refugee, looking for a new home. Old books for children, science fiction, fantasy, mysteries, and humor are my main areas of interest. I've little interest in books that were written after 1975 or so, and prefer books that are older still. There are, however, a few still-living authors that I respect.

Classic Starts: The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle (Classic Starts Series)

The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle - Kathleen Olmstead, Lucy Corvino, Arthur Pober, Hugh Lofting A classic, which unfortunately is all-to-often censored for completely idiotic reasons. The first in a series, my son loved it so much that we've continued with the rest of the Dolittle books.
