The Story of Doctor Dolittle [64 KB]
Hugh Lofting
Introducing this book, Hugh Walpole rightly points out that “Writing for children rather than about them is very difficult as everybody who has tried it knows. It can only be done, … by somebody having a great deal of the child in his own outlook and sensibilities.” This remarkable book, appealing to children and adults alike, is about the adventures of Dr. Dolittle, a very kindly, generous man who has learnt many animal languages and aided by his loyal animal friends, ever ready to help animals in distress.

King Matt the First [207 KB]
Janusz Korczak
King Matt the First recounts the adventures of a boy who, after the death of his father, is left with the overwhelming task of ruling a country. Determined not to be a mere figurehead, he struggles to navigate through the guile and ambiguity of his advisers in order to implement his reforms. The story is from a trained paediatrician whose purpose in life was to create a better world through the education of children. As a careful researcher he had an excellent knowledge of children and their every mood. From such an author one can expect only a layered story – a simple adventure for children and plenty of food for thought for adults.
