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!

A beautiful story with a warm heart

I read this book as a child decades ago and loved it then. I listened to it now and found that the story and style held strong. I still loved it. Yes, the story is a little dated, but it works well as is. I don't think it would work as well if it were modernized.

This book should be a childhood staple everywhere, even though it is EXTREMELY British. I strongly recommend this book for anyone with, or ever has been a child. It is very sweet.

AMAZING

I love the movie and thought the story could get no better, boy was I wrong. The twists and turns, the challenges Pongo and the Mrs have to go through kept me on my seat. A would read again kind of book. If you liked the movie you will love this book.

The 101dalmatiand

I love this book and I never get bored of it. When I was younger I was so sad whenever I finished the book that I just started it over again. It is very similar to the movie but is better in my opinion and has more characters than the movie does. I highly suggest it for all ages.

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.
