"Who's your all-time favourite book villain?"
This may seem odd, considering I am mother to five grown adults, but the only villain(ess) who pops into my mind is Cruella Deville!! From her style, to her hair, to her mannerisms and that cruel laugh, she stands out as one of the greatest villains of all time. As a dog lover, she is one antagonist I love to hate!
The Hundred and One Dalmatians, or the Great Dog Robbery, is a 1956 children's novel by Dodie Smith. A sequel, The Starlight Barking, continues from the end of the first novel.
The Disney adaptation of the novel into an animated film was released to theaters on January 25, 1961 as One Hundred and One Dalmatians. It was the tenth highest grossing film of 1961.
