Ian Fleming’s beloved original text — newly illustrated by Joe Berger!
"Crackpot" is what everybody calls the Pott family. So when they go to buy a new car and come back with a wreck, nobody is surprised. Except for the Potts themselves. First, the car has a name. And she tells them what it is. Then they find out that she can fly. And swim. . . . Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a car on a mission to stop a criminal gang in its tracks — and she is taking the Potts with her! Jump into the world’s most loved magical car for her first adventure.
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
