Hugh Lofting's anti-war sentiment comes out strongly in this book, and it is the only one where we actually see animals being vicious, fighting, and killing, and the only one where we see great animosity between humans and animals. The anti-war message is a bit flat, however, with bald statement in the narrative that aren't always effectively woven into the story.

The book starts with the Doctor giving up his dream of lengthening human life with discoveries he made on the Moon, and showing signs of despair. The tone of the passages for the first time acknowledges 'nature red in tooth and claw': another of the Doctor's experiments, a house where scavengers and parasites can live without harming other creatures, is also doomed to failure.

My father gave me my first Doctor Doolittle book when I was eight years old - it was "The Voyages of Doctor Doolittle" with the movie tie-in cover. After reading that, at least one Hugh Lofting was added to my weekly stack from the local library. A doctor that preferred animals to people, learned to speak their various languages, shared their stories, and had animal adventures? That was my world as I wanted it to be (especially since reality sadly was missing the animals, their understandable verbalizing, and any form of adventure).

And (next to "The Story of Doctor Doolittle" which my aunt gave me, which offers Doctor Doolittle origin information, Jip-the-dog's flawless ability to smell a thief, and pirates) "Doctor Doolittle and the Secret Lake" seems like the best book to me, in part because it's been the hardest book to find, and in part because it includes a long story told by an ancient sea turtle - a story goes all the way back to Noah and the great flood. I loved the adventure of finding Doctor Doolittle's ancient turtle friend Mudface (sea turtles are few and far between where I grew up), and hearing the story the sea turtle told.

That story is a little dark, though - darker than most of Doctor Doolittle's stories. The behavior of Noah's contemporaries, of course, but also that of Noah and his family, are none too praiseworthy from the animal perspective. There's slavery, people drown, people are killed. [As in other Doctor Doolittle books, Lofting's 1918ish attitudes towards the African are patronizing and antiquated, though The Secret Lake is better than his earlier efforts.] Tellingly, at one point, the animals talk about whether it makes sense to allow man to survive - now that there's a manageable number left.

At eight years old, I was fascinated by the interaction of the animals and how some argued to save man, others argued against it. And I didn't really get into the religious implications - I knew the difference between Doctor Doolittle, or Narnia, and the Bible. And the Civil Rights movement and a story.

Although I didn't know this at the time (this WAS way over my eight-year-old head), the darkness makes sense in the context of the times in which the book was written by Lofting. The book was first published in 1948, right after World War II. And Lofting wrote the Doctor Doolittle stories and sent them with his endearing illustrations as letters home from WWI. He wanted to write about something other than the waste and violence of the war he found in the trenches. If any of his books for children make any sort of political statement from his experiences, 'the Secret Lake,' - with the arguments about the value of humanity - is the closest. It also has some of what I think today is the best writing Lofting has to offer - lacking, however, the regular comedic features that the other Doctor Doolittle books offer.

Given what Lofting experienced of man's inhumanity to man during WWI, it's hardly a surprise that the animals in all of his books preferred each other (and their understanding friend the Doctor) to the rest of the human population. My dad and his sister both loved Doctor Doolittle, and it was one of the joys of my life that they shared part of their childhood with me.
