Review:

This is why the book holds up, 50 years after its original publication: its sense of the world as an inexplicable but also miraculous place.
--Los Angeles Times Online

There's no improving on perfection--in this case Fleming's adventure story (featuring the unconventional family Pott and their magically refurbished motorcar) with the original, transcendent Burningham illustrations, first published in 1964. The confiding informality of the storyteller's voice; the nonstop and immensely child-pleasing adventures; the spunk of young Jeremy and Jemima; and of course the ingenious personality of Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang herself--all combine to make an ideal family read-aloud. This handsome fiftieth-anniversary gift edition is ... so very welcome.
