The book that inspired the animated movie classic!

When Dearly's Dalmatians have their first litter of pups--fifteen in all--everyone is delighted. But their joy is shortlived, for the pups are kidnapped! Scotland Yard is baffled, but the keenest canine minds are on the case--and on the trail of Cruella de Vil, the most fiendish person to ever covet a fur coat.

Pongo and Missis would give everything they have to bring their puppies safely home... but will they succeed in rescuing them from the cluthes of the evil Cruella de Vil?

A tale full to overflowing with those prime requisites of a good story--warmth and humor, imagination and suspense.--Chicago Sunday Tribune

Superb reading. The puzzle of the hundred and one is delightful.... Highly recommended.--SLJ

Our customer reviews

A charming classic! Everyone should read the lovely tale (pun intended!) about the hundred and one Dalmatians. I enjoyed following along on Pongo and Missis' adventure to save their puppies' lives (literally, to save their skins!) from Cruella de Vil. The author included soo many adorable details that only a true dog-lover could think of. Note: The only "con" that I can think of is that there are many clues spread throughout the book showing that Cruella de Vil is very ominous and evil (which we already know!), but the hints do seem to point towards an even more foul being than she -- her "namesake". This is probably not a true issue with the book, because these hints are done very wittily and with humor. I've now heard there's a sequel, so I'd like to read it too!show more
