Packed with fun illustrations by Joe Berger, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again is the hilarious sequel to Ian Fleming's much loved children's classic, by Frank Cottrell Boyce, the author of the Carnegie Medal-winning Millions.

When the Tooting family find a vast abandoned engine and fit it to their camper van, they have no idea of the adventure that lies ahead. The engine used to belong to an extraordinary flying car - and it wants to be back on the road again . . . fast! The Tootings can haul on the steering wheel and pull the handbrake as hard as they like, but their camper van now has a mind of her own. It's not long before they're hurtling along on a turbocharged chase as Chitty tracks down her long-lost bodywork. But there are sinister forces at work too. When it comes to a car as special as Chitty, everybody wants a piece of her . . .

Product Description:

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang 1: Flies Again

Review:

Any sequel worth the name would require plenty of crackpot humor and absurd villains and a dose of magical realism, all of which happily burst from the pages of CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG FLIES AGAIN, a novel for 9- to 12-year-olds that puts the famous racing car in a modern setting A jolly good ride.
Wall Street Journal
Sir Ian Fleming s heirs, who have commissioned numerous James Bond sequels, turned to Boyce to continue Fleming s 1964 story CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG: THE MAGICAL CAR, and Boyce delivers... Berger adds comical artwork he even sneaks in a diagram of Bond s Aston Martin creating a Chitty that any kid would be thrilled to own. This first volume in a planned trilogy is hilarious and endlessly entertaining.
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Although the story is inventive and picturesque, with billionaire crooks, a visit to Madagascar, and a guest appearance on a French reality show called Car Stupide, most of the humor in this very funny novel is a result of the family s interactions with one another. Berger s lively cartoon illustrations depict each phase of Chitty s reincarnation in loving detail and bring the resourceful Tootings to life... A witty sequel.

--School Library Journal (starred review)

Boyce's modernized sequel to Ian Fleming's classic faithfully reflects the elements of the original, and the nods to Fleming's book and the subsequent movie make this retread of the ultimate family road trip even more enjoyable... The Tootings, however, hold their own when it comes to aptitude for zany adventures, so even readers with no knowledge of Dick Van Dyke or Truly Scrumptious will want to tag along for the family's run-ins with car-obsessed thieves, giant squids, and rogue spies. Berger's energetic line-and-wash illustrations depict a thoroughly modern biracial family, completing the successful retooling of a beloved classic. Mr. Potts would be proud.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Unlike other trendy returns to classic British stories, this isn't a narrative sequel to Ian Fleming's 1964 children's book. Rather, the esteemed Boyce revisits the general concept of auto-aerial exploits as their camper van, rehabbed with a mysterious old engine found in a junkyard tree, flies the Tootings across the globe, dodging evildoers and reassembling itself with missing pieces, such as headlights from the Eiffel Tower. The tone is contemporary, becoming much more Lemony Snickety as the plot progresses. The novel stands on its own as a satisfying, fresh family adventure, and readers will look forward to two forthcoming volumes.
--Booklist

Ian Fleming's strong-minded auto takes a new road trip, and if its passengers are largely just along for the ride, it's still a grand outing... The old racer's still good for another lap-and maybe more.
--Kirkus Reviews

Any sequel worth the name would require plenty of crackpot humor and absurd villains and a dose of magical realism, all of which happily burst from the pages of CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG FLIES AGAIN, a novel for 9- to 12-year-olds that puts the famous racing car in a modern setting... A jolly good ride.
--Wall Street Journal

Frank Cottrell Boyce creates a fitting tribute to the Ian Fleming classic with this companion volume starring the loving Tooting tribe and a family camper with a will of its own... Boyce makes the family dynamics the greatest source of humor in a book the whole family can enjoy. A clever homage...
--Shelf Awareness

This diverting read moves right along, thanks to the deadpan humor and warm relationships.
