Dodie Smith's classic tale about 101 Dalmations and their fight for survival against the evil Cruella De Vil. When Missis and Pongo's puppies go missing, the two Dalmatian parents know the scary Cruella De Vil has had something to do with it. After all, she adores furs, and the Dalmatians have such beautiful coats . . .

The Hundred and One Dalmations is an all-time classic children's book. Famously adapted by Walt Disney Studios, it continues to be one of the most popular children's books long after the author's death.
