Hello, I'm Mariam. I've got a science-fiction story for you today about some strange activities on a remote island where some odd-looking creatures live. We'd better get started…

The story is about an upper class man called Prendick who has been shipwrecked. A passing ship rescues him and he is looked after by a doctor called Montgomery, who is travelling with a cargo of animals to an unnamed island. When they get there, an unfriendly man called Doctor Moreau reluctantly allows Prendick to stay.

Prendick is curious about the research Doctor Moreau is doing with the animals on the island. One day he hears a puma, which the doctor is experimenting on, cry with pain. He goes to investigate and he comes across a group of bizarre-looking creatures who look almost like humans – strange! He questions Montgomery about this the next day but he cannot get a straight answer.

Next morning he's even more curious about what he has seen. With bated breath, he goes into one of Doctor Moreau's animal enclosures and discovers a strange half-human, half-beast lying in bandages. It dawns on him that Doctor Moreau has been carrying out scientific experiments on humans – and that he could be the next victim. Shaking with fear, he runs out into the jungle where he meets an ape-man who takes him to a colony of other half-human creatures.

Who are these people and what are they doing on the island? And what's going to happen to poor Prendick? Join me in part two to see if he survives this curious situation. Bye for now.
