Dodie Smith - Száz meg egy kiskutya / A kutyák csillaga
EZ ITT AZ EREDETI! Kevesen tudják, hogy a Magyarországon oly népszerű 101 kiskutya-történet ('a nagy kutyarablás') alapja egy nagyobbaknak szóló, s a filmeknél a maga módján sokkal gazdagabb, csodálatos meseregény, amely 1956-ban jelent meg először. Mind emberi, mind kutyatulajdonságokkal felruházott hősei a szívünkbe lopják magukat. A történet folytatásának, a második meseregénynek az alapötlete talán még érdekesebb, s a kidolgozás még elgondolkodtatóbb. Magyarországon először jelenik meg a két regény egy kötetben. A hozzájuk tartozó rajzokat az írónő útmutatásai alapján készítette a grafikus ikerpár - két hölgy. Két mű egy kötetben, végig az eredeti illusztrációkkal.
