Although the crook was first introduced in the 1956 children’s novel written by author Dodie Smith. It tells us of Cruella’s evil intent to make a fur coat for herself out of the skins of Dalmatian puppies.

What it doesn’t show you is her evil and derange personality – so you’ll need too get practicing before you attempt to put the fear of ‘Dog’ into your friends.
