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 moreby Tarissa
