The first-ever follow up to Ian Fleming''s only children''s story. When the Tooting family finds an old engine and fits it to their camper van, they have no idea what kind of adventure lies ahead. The engine used to belong to an extraordinary car . . . and it wants its bodywork back. Illustrations.
Annotation:
CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG by Ian Fleming, of James Bond fame, returns with Frank Cottrell Boyce's silly, sparkly story of the enthusiastic, biracial Tooting family and their camper van. When Dad is laid off from his factory job, he sees an exciting opportunity to travel instead of enduring dread unemployment. Despite the worries of their practical eldest son Jem, the disregard of Lucy (the moody, Goth middle-child), and the obliviousness of toddler Harry, Dad is pleased to learn that Mum is supportive--and an old camper van is fixed in anticipation. The addition of a seemingly harmless engine is key to the story, as it is really Chitty. When the Tootings discover that their van can fly, a thrilling adventure begins, involving villains, a search for missing car parts, and one wild ride. This is the first in a trilogy, accompanied by humorous spot art.

Praise

"This first volume in a planned trilogy is hilarious and endlessly entertaining." 01/16/2012

"Although the story is inventive and picturesque, with billionaire crooks, a visit to Madagascar, and a guest appearance on a French reality show called "Car Stupide," most of the humor in this very funny novel is a result of the family's interactions with one another." (starred review) 03/01/2012
