Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:
Pushmi-pullyus are extinct. That means there aren't any alive anymore. But long ago, a few pushmi-pullyus lived in the jungles of Africa.
Pushmi-pullyus looked very strange. They had no tail. They had two heads with sharp horns, one head at each end of their body.
There were no pushmi-pullyus in zoos. No one had ever caught one!
A pushmi-pullyu always faced you. Only one half slept at a time. The other head would always stay awake, watching.
They were also very shy animals.
The monkeys set out to find a pushmi-pullyu for Doctor Dolittle.
After a while they saw strange footprints near the edge of the river.
They followed the footprints to a place where the grass was high and thick.
"He must be in there!" one of the monkeys whispered.
The monkeys joined hands. They made a big circle around the high grass.
The pushmi-pullyu heard them.
He tried to run away, but he couldn't.
He sat down and waited to see what the monkeys wanted.
