Publisher's Summary

Pongo lives happily with his human pets Mr. and Mrs. Dearly in a large house in Regent's Park. When his wife Missis produces a litter of 15 beautiful pups, life seems wonderfully complete. But the mysterious disappearance of the puppies suddenly throws everything into turmoil. Pongo, one of the keenest brains in Dogdom, quickly realises that he and Missis are the only hope for their youngsters' survival. And so the fearless pair set out on a bleak winter's journey into great dangers, helped along the way by the gallant Colonel, a sheepdog of the Old School.

Dodie Smith's canine classic brought pleasure to millions as a Disney film. All its original charm and warmth are fully evident here in this full-cast dramatisation which stars Patricia Hodge as Cruella de Vil, along with Joan Sims, Brenda Blethyn, Nicky Henson, and Polly James.

Love the Book, Hate this Edition

What didn’t you like about Dramatisation’s performance?

This was horrible, I do not recommend it at all.

Could you see The 101 Dalmatians (Dramatised) being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Well, it already is a movie, though the book is 100 times better. Though I would prefer to sit through any of the movies as inaccurate as they are compared to this terrible dramatization.

Any additional comments?

I love this book, but this dramatization ruins it. Do not purchase this version unless you want to be tortured by the mutilation of a favorite book.
