Dad started the engine. It made two loud sneezes –
– and two small explosions –
– and thundered into life!
Join Jeremy and Jemima Pott and their parents on a madcap adventure in the world’s most famous flying car! This is the first ever picture-book adaptation of Ian Fleming’s original classic. So there is no terrifying Child Catcher to give little readers nightmares (he appears only in the film). But there is still plenty of family-friendly action and adventure and, best of all, the wonderful, the magical flying (and floating!) car Chitty Chitty Bang Bang!
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was the James Bond author’s only children’s book and our version is published by Hachette in association with theIan Fleming Estate. The book is true to the spirit of the original but with the blessing of Ian Fleming’s family we have allowed ourselves to make one very important modification to the famous car. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang has gone ELECTRIC! See if you can spot the plug-in cable point in the fabulous illustrations and endpapers!
The book is magnificently illustrated by picture-book star Steve Antony, creator of Mr Panda and The Queen’s Hat, Amazing and many other titles.
