if you're not familiar with the original story - this all-new Chitty
adventure will have you rolling on the floor in fits of laughter.
Seriously, it's hilarious! There's something here for
everyone--adventure, mystery, intrigue, humor, and a darn good family
read. And really, don't worry if you haven't read the original or seen
the movie, this new adventure works completely on its own. Boyce's Chitty is the first of a projected trilogy.
Carter — From Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again
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.
