About the Author

Dorothy Gladys 'Dodie' Smith was born in 1896 in Lancashire and was one of the most successful female dramatists of her generation. Her first novel, I Capture the Castle, written when she lived in America during the 1940's, marked her crossover debut from playwright to novelist. The novel became an immediate success and was produced as a play in 1954. She has written numerous other novels but is best known today for The Hundred and One Dalmatians, a story for younger readers grown out of her life-long love of the spotty dog and inspired by her own experiences. The Hundred and One Dalmatians became the basis of two Disney Films. She lived in a cottage with her husband and many pets, in the Essex countryside that she loved, until her death in 1990, aged 94.


"This book has one of the most charismatic narrators I've ever met" J. K. Rowling "The appeal of the book is that of a time of innocence ... When a girl of 17 could still be all but untouched by sexuality. At the same time it captures the pangs of growing up and unrequited first love." Observer "A book for everyone who is young, poor, fed up and yearning for something exciting to happen" Irish Times "[A] gorgeous new edition" -- Geraldine Brennan Observer
