I learned from this book that I should be studying children's literature, not the Victorian stuff! This was actually a really nice, fun book. I would by all means recomend it, to more or less anyone. ( )

An adorable animal adventure tale. Some of the attitudes about feminism and patriarchy expressed in this book are antiquated, and I'm not sure how much there is in terms of depth and complexity of themes to discuss with my EL510 students. But this was still a heartwarming, good-vs.-evil tale that I'm not sure how I missed when I was younger. ( )

I first read this book at the tender age of 9, after seeing the (shudder) Walt Disney cartoon. As an adult, I can appreciate more of the humor that the author, Dodie Smith, utilized in the text, such as Pongo devouring Shakespeare as a puppy (in a tasty leather binding), or Missis wondering how she can depend on something that "depends".

Not just for children, there is plenty for any age to enjoy in this story. Go FETCH a copy, then SIT and STAY until you've finished reading it, it won't be a chore or bore! ( )

Oh so much better than the movie! It's getting difficult to find a copy by Dodie Smith instead of Walt Disney ~ but that's the one you want. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140340343, Paperback)

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
