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.

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.

The book is magical and wondrous when all the adventure start with an old car being fixed. I'm 9 and have seen the old movie and really liked it.
I liked it because there are so many cool adventures to find all the cars' parts and some crazy things happen along the way.
I liked it was a family with kids around my age. It would be cool to have something like this happen in real life. Read this book!
