Reviews from Toppsta

“This is a very simple fiction story aimed at children aged 4-7. The text is mostly dialogue and is not too challenging for Key Stage 1 children to read on their own. The illustrations help the story along and are the highlight of book.” – Read by a teacher

“A great book for young readers, just the right length to hold their attention. The story follows the adventures of a Dalmatian puppy who goes for a wander. Luckily he is saved from the mighty Cruella De Vil! Eye-catching cover and brightly coloured visuals” – Read to a child aged 3

“A nice short story especially if you are a fan of 101 Dalmations. Nice pictures and easy to read. My favourite bit was where cadpig went in disguise to hide from Cruella de Vil.” – Read by a child aged 8

“I read this book, Cruella and Cadpig to a girl in year 1. She said it was good because it’s got lots of puppies in it she also said because it was colourful. She would give this book 4 stars, but I would give it 5 stars. I would recommend the book to 5 to 8 year olds, but it can be enjoyed by any age.” – Read to a child in Year 1

“This was a fun short story based on the book 101 Dalmations. It sees all the puppies having fun in the park when one gets lost and stumbles across Cruella De Vil. The illustrations were very appealing and the story not scary, Cruella doesn’t mention turning dogs into clothes, just catching the puppy!  And the way Cadpig escapes from Cruella was lots of fun. A great little book.” – Read to a child aged 5
