This classic adventure tale begins when two Dalmatians, Pongo and Perdita, go in search of their 17 stolen puppies. They’re horrified to discover that their pups—along with dozens more dogs—are being held captive by the notorious Cruella de Vil, who captures Dalmatians with the goal of making coats from their fur. By the time Pongo and Perdita (with the help of their newfound animal friends) have conquered the wicked Cruella, her estate is transformed into a lovely new home for all 101 of the liberated Dalmatians. This exciting tale teaches kids that tenacity, courage, and teamwork can help good triumph over evil.
