Why has everyone so far written about Doolittle? It's Dolittle.

The first book is available online at
http://www.PageByPageBooks.com/Hugh_Lofting/The_Story_of_Doctor_Dolittle/Introduction_p1.html

I haven't seen any of the controversial novels in etext, nor have I actually
seen the editions where e.g. the Doctor's preferred word for black Africans
is altered, and his turning Bumpo (temporarily) white in order to escape from
these ignorant savages is excised. I own an original version of that one. I
am very strongly against altering books to fit later sensibilities.
