The Lovereading4Kids comment
The world’s best-loved flying car takes off on its fantastical adventures in this handsome new edition brought to life by John Burningham’s stunning illustrations. With Commander Potts at the controls, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang takes off into the stratosphere…You can imagine the adventures that follow given that the car can swim, fly and even has its own Radar Eye which means it can keep on the trail of the head of a gang of international criminals.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang by Ian Fleming, John Burningham
The wings slowly tilted, and as Commander Pott, at last realizing what CHITTY-CHITTY-BANG-BANG was up to, pressed down the accelerator pedal, the big green car tilted up her shining green and silver nose and took off. Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, invented Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang for his young son Caspar, and it went on to become the most famous and best-loved car
in fiction. This treasured story inspired a film and a musical and is celebrated in this lavish, highly collectible new edition, complete with its gorgeous original artwork by John Burningham, one of Britain’s most popular author/illustrators.
