About the Author

Ian Fleming, famous for creating James Bond, also loved fast cars — and this love spurred him to write his only children’s book, for his little boy, Caspar, about a car that could fly. Published just after Fleming’s death in 1964, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: The Magical Car became an immediate bestseller. It has been reinvented as a musical and as a film (with the screenplay written by Roald Dahl) and inspired two sequels written by Frank Cottrell Boyce.

Joe Berger is an editorial cartoonist, animator, and illustrator. He has illustrated numerous books, including the Nosy Crow title Hubble Bubble, Granny Trouble by Tracey Corderoy. Joe Berger lives in England.

The only thing the same about the book and the movie is the name. I enjoyed the story in the book and think it would make a great movie. But it is so different from the movie that it would have to have a different name. maybe Gen ii, The name of the car in the book. It is a fun book to read.
