MOST USUAL DOGS ARE MORE UNUSUAL THAN UNUSUAL DOGS.
What a wonderful story. This is not a Disney Movie made into a book, but a 1956 book that was adapted into a movie in 1961. It is extremely well written and can be enjoyed by the whole family. At times it is laugh out loud funny. I found the General, to be extremely funny. Dog owners will love it the most.
THE SIZE OF ALL BREEDS SHOULD BE KEPT UP
Since it was written in 56 and even though it was written by a woman, there are some noticeable sexist remarks. The mother dog, is referred to as Mrs., while her husband has a name, Pongo. Mrs. can't tell her right from her left and the male dogs think, that is cute. The male pups struggle bravely, but the female pups, just can't go on. With that exception, I recommend this book, highly. It is entertaining, fun and intelligent.
S.O.S, SAVE OUR SKINS
Narrator does an excellent job

Don't let the fact that this is supposed to be a children's book stop you from listening to this entertaining and well written story. The narrator does a great job of voicing all of the characters in a believable fashion.

A beautiful book beautifully read. It kept both adults and children happily entertained all the way down to Cornwall recently. Although the rough plot line will be familiar to most families from the Disney film the book is subtler and more carefully plotted. There are wider range of characters, both canine and human, and the dogs' final revenge upon Cruella de Vil is both viscerally exciting and absolutely fitting to her planned crime. My 7 year old son said it was 'fantastic' and we are now reading the book itself. A great way to introduce children to the stories behind the simplified Disney films.

My son really enjoyed this story, he is 6 years old and has seen the Disney film so was aware of the characters and the plot line. We particularly liked how the story is told from the dogs point of view which brings a certain humour to the narration. Recommended for all children of this age range as an easy to follow story.
