Content descriptions

General Note:
"Adapted in part from the Disney film One Hundred and One Dalmatians"--Title page verso.
"One Hundred and One Dalmatians is based on the book The Hundred and One Dalmatians by Dodie Smith, published by The Viking Press."--Title page verso.
Ah, puppies. But we'll get to that part of the story soon enough. You may think you know the tale: a happy young couple, two loyal dogs, a litter of fifteen perfectly spotted puppies, and the woman determined to turn them into a perfectly spotted fur coat--so determined that she stole every Dalmatian puppy in London, bringing the total of dogs to exactly one hundred and one. But who is that monster, that scene-stealer, that evil thing? Before the car crash, before the dognapping, before furs became her only true love, there was another story. This story of Cruella De Vil--in her own words. Even the cruelest villians have best friends, true loves, and daring dreams. After all, nothing is as simple as black and white. The newest novel in Serena Valentino's darkly fascinating Villians series brings readers a tale told by the "evil thing" herself--a tale of friendship, love and loss, mothers and daughters...and revenge.
