    " What an odd little book this is. It is a trippy acid trip that takes the charming characters from The 101 Dalmations and throws it into a weird sort of science fictiony dream fantasy featuring hovering, telepathic dogs coming to terms with a friendly ultimatum being offered by a benign but lonely star that wishes to save them from the impending nuclear war it fears humans will unleash on planet Earth. The dogs' pluckiness and downright British properness are the sole saving factors of this book; the rest is just wacky. "

    " I read this sequel to 101 Dalmations several times in my childhood, and calmly accepted the author's choice to veer into science fiction. As an adult though, I'm less biddable, and find the premise of this book (which I can't describe with being spoiler-ish) just too weird. "

    " It was an OK read, but not as interesting nor funny as my favourite children books...:) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jay | 11/19/2013

    " Great kids' story, didn't know it was related to 101 Dalmations until after reading. Seems to have higher ties to the supernatural and more fantastic than "101". "

    " What a patronizing, racist, essentialist, disappointing piece of tripe. What do you think children are, anyway? For shame! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie P | 8/23/2013

    " This book... I cant figure out if it's magical or terrifying! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terry Lockhart | 7/21/2013

    " This book is kind of crazy, especially considering it is a sequel of a classic story that isn't too strange. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen Pate | 6/27/2013

    " The sequel to 101 Dalmations and just as good as the first with a little science fiction twist. "

    " Great and interesting story. glad disney didn't touch it. The author's way of writing has always captured my attention. Love seeing the Pongo family in a new adventure "

    " I read the original version, the sequel to "One-Hundred and One Dalmatians" was different and almost very fantasy-ish. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mareklamo | 10/24/2010

    " Not as good as 101 Dalmatians. While it was nice to catch up with Pongo and Missis and some of their family and friends, I was dissatisfied with the plot of this sequel. "
