Product Description

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)" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I really liked 'Cosmic' but I loved this book. Cosmic seemed to be on one level, laugh a minute humour but the humour in this story builds deliciously, the scary part happens after you've laughed out loud creating a great change in tempo and at the end the old Chitty is pulled together.

This book has been on my 'to read' pile for a while. I loved the idea of the book but I was afraid to read it in case it was rubbish and spoiled my memories of Chitty. I have tried unsuccessfully to get my children to read a page of it so I took the plunge of the cliff today and I loved it and read it in one sitting (well while carrying it doing 101 other things like making dinner as I'm a woman who can multitask). I'm immediately going to give this book to my 12 year old daughter with a must read this rather than do your homework recommendation. I then have to do the homework in the style of a 12 year old who is cleverer than me...

Why I love it? The children act like children, talk like children and are cleverer and funnier than adults like all children are. The teenage daughter who paints her room black but who has been learning all kinds of obscure but ultimately vital information is hilarious. At lot of her friends are bilingual Egyptian Meterologists don't you know. I laughed out loud at this point. It's absolutely brilliantly imaginative in a way that inspires children. It's emotionally connective. The adults embarass the children by kissing on tv, Chitty has feelings and a mind of her own, the dad is brilliant in a best kind of mad professor, lovely inventor way, the bondesque villians are scary and there is an Aston Martin with deadly gadgets being chased by historical villians.

Highly recommended. Best book I've read this year.

Not exactly a continuation of the Chitty saga, but it is meant to be the same car. Though Cottrell Boyce isn't trying to emulate Fleming's story or characters, he's creating a new thread to the car's story.

It's not the time of Caractacus Potts anymore - it's contemporary England. A family need a new car, and their out-of-work fix-it Dad decides to put an old car engine inside a camper van, you know the sort of story you are in for.

The Tooting family plan to see the world in their new motor, with emo/goth teenage daughter and younger son and baby, they set off for Paris... ANd discover their car is rather special. And that someone is after her (yes, it's a her).

With scenes set around the world, the story moves quickly from one Mini-adventure to another (joke intended), but keeps the children safe enough to keep this light. The children are the stars, especially the teenager with hidden depths (a celebration of all things educational), with Dad a bit of a stereotype and Mum (certainly the narrated version) a really annoying voice of calm (the only badly voiced character by David Tennant, in my opinion).

Apart from Mum's voice (so smooth and bland it could have been used in an M&S advert), David Tennant does a fine job in providing the voices on the audio-version I listened too, and it's not a long read to keep attention. A lot happens, a lot of places are visited, bad guys come and go, and of course we have a car that can fly.

Enjoyable, and a good start to a revamped series. Recommended for ages 9-12.

When I first saw this in the library I wasn't sure. I had read cosmic but I hated it SO MUCH I didn't even finish it. So,if you're me you will avoid the author. But I took it out anyway because I have an intrest in chitty.
The tootings are a normal family whith:
1. The Funny fixit dad.
2.The gaget loving kid(Jem.)
3.big miss goth.(Lucy.
4.The surprisily observant toddler.(Little Harry.)
5. The clever mum.
REASONS THIS IS BRILLIANT.
1.The fact I've mesmorised all the characters.
2.The fact the characters act like real people.
3.The fact that this is a high speed action adventre.
4.Jem is the story's main character. At first he is a bit of a wuss and you see his brave dad as the hero. However, as the story process Jem evolves into the hero I did not expect when I read the start.
5. VERY GRIPPING.

So this book alone is responsable for me falling in love with the world of Frank Cottrell boyce Not, Millions, not framed,(please note I haven't read those 2.) Certaly NOT cosmic(In fact if I did not read that I might of read millions or framed,) Even the astounding brocalli boy!
This alone did that
Chitty Chitty bang bang…
… FLIES…
…AGAIN!!!

As a child, one of my favorite film classics was Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (along with Mary Poppins and The Railway Children) and when it was announced that a sequel was being written I was intrigued to read it and find out what happened next!

However, when I received the book , I was disappointed to find that the book is not a true sequel, it does not continue from where the film finished - no Truly Scrumptious and Mr Potts.

The book introduces a new family, The Tootings. The father, Mr Tooting, has been sacked from his job, but sees this as a good thing, because the family will be able to travel where ever they want. However, this is soon put in jeopardy when the family car is returned as it was a company car. Mr Tooting makes use of all his free time by 'modifying' household appliance and the children's toys.

Mrs Tooting comes home one day with a vintage camper van which Mr Tooting and his eldest son, Jem, begin to take apart and put back together again to enable the family to travel overseas as previously planned. A broken spark plug leads the family to visit a local scrapyard to try and find a new one - not only do they come away with a new spark plug but also a much larger engine for the van.

When the engine has been swapped over, they are set to begin their travels but an accident at a camper van festival, where baby Harry gets behind the wheel and drives the van off a cliff, they discover the van can fly and The Tooting family visit Paris and Cairo on their travels.

I thought that the story was well written and will interest children of 9+. The book includes lots of little facts about Paris and Cairo, but also little facts about the solar system and animals encountered on their travels.
