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.

    " This book is one of the best novels that Walt Disney adapted into a motion picture. I absolutely fell in love with it from start to finish and I am sure that it will be a book that will stay around for everybody to enjoy. "

    " A really wonderful children's book, and much better than the Disney film version. I loved her novel I Capture the Castle, so I was not surprised by how much I enjoyed this. Also, people will be very surprised as some of the differences between the film and book, but I won't give that away! "

    " The first book I ever read & was caught right from the start! A must for every child. "

    " How many times didn't I dream about a spotted dog after reading this book as a young girl... "

    " My third grade classroom had a library-loft. I'm pretty sure all of the books in it belonged to my teacher. I remember reading this up in the loft. It was very different from the movie, but enjoyable in a different way. "

    " One of m fave books as a kid. Has not lost its magic "

    " The movies were better, I understood them more. The book was okay and fun, I guess. However, Cruella DeVill is a fantastic villain and is an icon today. She was portrayed splendidly by Glenn Close in the 1996 film. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jillian | 1/1/2011

    " I loved this a lot. It is different from (and better than) the movie. I especially liked the ending. (One of the puppies remembers the church as being her favorite refuge while hiding from Cruella DeVil. The symbolism was obvious, but it worked.) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gail | 12/10/2010

    " Disney changed the story -- so what else is new? Books and movies are never the same. But the real Perdita was left out and "someone else" given her name! "

    " this was fine, but i capture the castle was GREAT! why didn't she write more??? i'm going to wikipedia this... "

    " I can't count how many times I read the used hardcover I owned as dhild, so I was thrilled to find this hardcover, even before I had children of my own to share it with.

    The Disnay movie is a shadow of the story that Smith evokes. "
