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 original timeless artwork by John Burningham, one of Britainís most popular author/illustrators.
