Publisher's Summary

Puppies and more puppies! How will they escape the evil Cruella de Vil?

When the Dearly's Dalmatians have their first litter of puppies (fifteen in all) everyone is delighted. But their joy is shattered when the pups are kidnapped! The humans don't have a clue as to who the culprit is, but the smartest dogs in London are on the case, and on the trail of fur-loving Cruella de Vil, who will stop at nothing to have a Dalmatian fur coat!

Sweet.

I love the story so much. Not a compliment or concern or comment, just saying in most of the books your Mrs. was actually Pandita. I don't care though, the classic tale! I love this!

Always Delightful

The original story, as is often the case, is so much more engaging and lovely than the movie. If you are considering this book for your children, they will find many characters to love that the film denied them. If you are an adult considering it for yourself, you will find simple joys that we often deny ourselves.

Charming, and Slightly Different than the Movie

The story is delightful, and the narrator is quite good. There were some notable differences between the classic Disney animated movie and the book, though for 90 percent of the book the film was quite faithful.

Not the Disney version

Quite different from the Disney story, this original version of 101 Dalmations is entertaining for kids and adults alike. The narrator does a wonderful job of making each character distinct, and the story itself is terrific.

a dogs tale

The book of the 101 dalmatians, surprised me as I read it. It is rather different then the movies, and not just for the better. Mostly it is a good book, where the dogs tale unfold for your eyes. The story is quite more detailed and emotionel then the movies. Yet, here you follow the dogs, not the humans.
I miss the scenes with the brothers chase of the puppies, and all the accidents and hardship they endure.
This is the part I miss, and that is why I only give it 3 stars.
Do not misunderstand, it is indeed a good book, that deserves to be read.
