#Movie2BookRecs #LetterC #Cruella

An interesting choice of cover art for 100 and 1 Dalmations, fitting for the new movie Cruella.

Klou I love that cover!!! 1mo

Is there anything more English than a scarecrow festival?

Daisy better be careful - Cruella might want a new coat.

I am reminded of an ice storm in my childhood in Missouri, sometime in the 1970s. The power was out but we had a wood stove and I read Smith‘s book by the snowlight coming in the patio door. Yes, there must have been cold pouring off the glass, but I only remember Pongo and Missis and Perdita in the snow. #winter

marleed It‘s so cold. I‘m fortunate in that I was still asleep when my neighborhood experienced its turn at the rolling power outage. 9mo

2378 points for week two!! #WinterGames #MerryReaders

I'm closing in on a LOT of bingo blackouts so hoping to get some extra points this week!! I really need a story where children are in Christmas costumes & someone else is wearing a Christmas sweaters while driving a vintage American vehicle, sipping eggnog, & not remembering where they are because they have amnesia!! 😂

@Clowjick

BayouGirl85 The amnesia one could be The Spirit of Christmas. The eggnog one could be The Christmas Getaway. 12mo

I love this book so much!! While the Disney version is perfectly fine, the original story has more characters & more humor (although it lacks catchy show tunes). A delightful story that ends on Christmas day, making it always feel like a Christmas story to me. If you decide to read this one - and you should! - make sure to get an edition with the original illustrations by Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone - they add SO much to the story!

TheAromaofBooks PS This one was actually written by Dodie Smith, of I Capture the Castle fame. 12mo
AmyG I just got Capture the Castle. She is an author I never heard of. I also had no clue she wrote the 101 Dalmations. I learn alot from Litsy! 12mo

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I've never read this one, only watched the Disney version. 12mo
TheAromaofBooks @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick - It's well worth the read!! Enjoyable for younger readers, but with enough humor & entertainment to keep adults engaged as well. It's an old favorite of mine. 12mo
iread2much This is one of my favorite books! I love the story and the characters, especially the way she writes the animal characters. I will always have a soft spot for liver spotted Dalmatians due to this book@ 12mo
TheAromaofBooks @iread2much - Right?? Reading this book always sends me down a bunny hold of looking up Dalmatians 😂 Have you ever seen a picture of lemon-spotted ones?? Apparently black & liver are the only “official“ colors (allowed to be in dog shows) but there is an even lighter variation & I kind of want one!! 12mo
iread2much @TheAromaofBooks ooo, I have not. I will have to look it up! 12mo

Another book and a puzzle! I‘ve had the paperback since I was a kid—it‘s a little chewed on one corner and the pages are definitely yellowed but it‘s holding together pretty well. May have to watch the movie now for some book-puzzle-movie synergy!

I have a question for everyone: who here would be interested in doing a nostalgia swap? It‘s an idea that‘s been floating around my head for awhile. Also, are there any good swaps that still have signups open? I was so sad I missed the Valentine‘s Day swaps and St. Patrick‘s Day. I was sick both times and missed the signups!

mcipher What would a nostalgia swap entail? Like stuff from childhood? 3y
jillannjohn I like the sound of this... 3y
JenlovesJT47 @mcipher yes! Like your favorite book series (Sweet Valley, Babysitter‘s Club, etc), TV shows (Saved by the Bell, 90210), candy, snacks, all sorts of things! Would be so fun! 3y

Kaylamburson I love this idea! Also @BookishMarginalia just posted about the summer swap! 3y
JenlovesJT47 @Kaylamburson thank you so much for letting me know about secret Santa! Also, I still plan on doing the nostalgia swap but haven‘t had a chance to set it up yet, too stressed trying to plan Jace‘s first birthday party 😩 Hoping to have it all set up next week! 🤗😘 3y

This was such an odd book. It was entertaining, but it was weird at some points. I'm a huge fan of the Disney movie, so it was nice to see where Walt and his team found inspiration from. I will say, I think the movie took the best bits from the book and made a great movie there is one scene I wish they kept and also amp up Cruella's madness/evilness because she was delightful to read in the fun but strange book. 3/5 stars.

I picked this book up on a whim last weekend at Goodwill. Of course, I have seen the movie so many times. I have kids! The book was so much fun to read to compare to the movie. There were differences, but it was the same great story. Parts of the book were dated: for instance, Missis was not as smart as Pongo, but things like that were easy to forgive.

🎀 On the whole, I‘ll read one at a time. But if I‘m struggling with a book, I‘ll pick up another to read as well.

🎀 Definitely a movie.

🎀 Outside looking in, but if I‘ve really enjoyed a book I have a habit of creating new characters and plot lines so I can keep the story going in my head. I find it hard to let go sometimes 😂

🎀 101 Dalmatians by Dodie Smith.

#OnlyReadersUnderstand @nu-bibliophile

Nu-Bibliophile That's so funny because I try to make up plot lines too to extend the story especially the ones that moved me. Yay! I found someone that does the same thing 🙌🙌 3y

MAY 11 PROMPT: Lost Books

This 1957 Edition of the Hundred and One Dalmatians had been hidden from me as a child because my mother could not trust me to keep from coloring the illustrations (yes, that‘s my handiwork above) #lostbook. Although this is considered a first edition, the story appeared in serial form in Woman‘s Day Magazine as “The Great Dog Robbery” in 1956 & 1957.
