Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Amazon Best Books of the Month for Kids, March 2012: “Tooting family, we are ready to go. The word today is adventure.” In a follow-up every bit as original as the book that inspired it, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again follows the Tooting family on a wild ride from the heights of Paris to the sands of Egypt. Best-selling author Frank Cottrell Boyce has created a funny modern family on the kind of road trip that can only come from a 1966 camper van with a mind of its own and the engine of a long lost racecar. From father-son bonding over mysterious junkyard treasure, to hair-raising escapes, and pancake stands in the desert--there is something here for most every reader. A perfect book for family time or for middle grade readers to enjoy on their own, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again deserves a place of honor alongside Ian Fleming’s children’s book classic. --Seira Wilson

From School Library Journal

Gr 3-6-To keep Dad busy after he's been laid off, Mum gets him an old camper van to fix. But when the family visits the junkyard looking for parts, they strike flying, floating automotive gold. An inventive and picturesque family story, as full of heart and humor as the original.α(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

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

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)
