While Dad loves reliving the heroics of the game and the excitement of being in the swinging sixties, the kids are searching for the missing car. Just as well because, when Big Ben is stolen, the Tootings, who are now friends with the Queen!, know that they will only be able to get it back with the help of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Master story-teller Frank Cotrell Boyce brilliantly propels Chitty Chitty Bang Bang into a riotous new adventure.

Sharing their combined knowledge of how Chitty works, the families stand a chance of rescuing Little Harry and finding the most brilliant car in the world.
