LoveReading View on The One Hundred and One Dalmatians

Cruella De Vil, the wicked woman who steals a litter of Dalmations puppies so that she can make herself a very special fur coat is one of the most feared villains of children’s fiction. The One Hundred and One Dalmations is a thrilling adventure with a most importance mission at its heart. Pongo and Missus’s frantic pursuit of Cruella De Vil and the crooks who help her is a matter of life and death. Excellently filmed, the original story as told here remains a brilliant read.

But when she steals a whole family of them, the puppies' parents, Pongo and Missus, lose no time in mounting a daring rescue mission. Will they be in time to thwart Cruella's evil scheme, or have they bitten off more than they can chew?
