Doctor De Soto Goes to Africa - William Steig I think that I'm inclined to give Doctor De Soto Goes to Africa 2.5 to 3 stars. I didn't enjoy this one as much as just plain old Doctor De Soto, but on the other hand, this one had shades of Dominic, which I loved as a child.

The kids sat and listened to this story with quite a bit of interest, but I think that even they were a little dissatisfied with this one. Both asked about whether or not the villain in the story got his comeuppance, and that really wasn't addressed in the book.

There was a lot going on in Doctor De Soto Goes to Africa, and it certainly had some thrills and suspense. I'm just not sure that "more" made this Doctor De Soto book equal to or better than the first one.
