Description
Buckle your seat belts and hang on for a wild ride in this wryly hilarious sequel to Ian Fleming's Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang, penned by Carnegie Medal winner Frank Cottrell Boyce for readers 8 to 12. When last she was seen in the early 1960s, the magical motorcar was flying the Pott family off to destinations unknown; here Chitty first appears as a mighty engine—sans car—stuck in a tree. Discovered by a recently unemployed engineer who was seeking parts for a VW camper van, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (sans hyphens as well) is ready to propel the Tooting family all over the world in search of adventure (and the bits of her far-scattered bodywork).

"Ian Fleming's heirs, who have commissioned numerous James Bond sequels, turned to Boyce to continue Fleming's 1964 story Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang: The Magical Car, and Boyce delivers.... [Joe] Berger adds comical artwork—he even sneaks in a diagram of Bond's Aston Martin—creating a Chitty that any kid would be thrilled to own. This first volume in a planned trilogy is hilarious and endlessly entertaining."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"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. Berger's lively cartoon illustrations depict each phase of Chitty's reincarnation in loving detail and bring the resourceful Tootings to life.... A witty sequel."—School Library Journal (starred review)
