The One Hundred and One Dalmatians Vintage Novel

Look what my lovely husband bought for our collection: a vintage copy of Dodie Smith's The One Hundred and One Dalmatians. What a perfect present for a Dalmatian owner and a great memento for the kick-off of our blog. As included in our 101 Fun Facts and Trivia Tidbits About Dalmatians, the novel was first published in 1956. This copy is a 1968 softcopy reprint - perfect for me to (carefully) read instead of being a hands-off collectible. I am looking forward to seeing how it differs from my Disney-ised memories of the story and checking out the great vintage illustrations by Ann Johnstone and Janet Grahame-Johnstone. If you're are keen to get your hands on your on slightly-less-vintage copy for reading, they are still in print and very popular: The Hundred and One Dalmatians and it's sequel The Starlight Barking.
