The point is: Ian Fleming, throughout his life, had lots of fun connecting all sorts of dots in his fiction. He was a famous journalist himself, chiefly as what we would call the foreign editor of The Sunday Times in London.Read more ›
It certainly did! I was particularly amused throughout the book.Mr. Boyce has done a very good job of maintaining the voice and atmosphere of the original while making the story completely his own. This story takes place in modern times and involves the putting back together of the original Chitty car, which all starts with the Tootings family finding the engine and installing it in their Camping Van. At this point, Chitty is able to take over the van and drives (or flies) the van all over the world (namely 'Paris, Cairo and below the ocean.) The book is also very British, with spellings, word usage, slangs and humour. A delightful little story which has a bit of a slow beginning but gets better and better until the wonderful ending, which leaves us expecting a sequel.
This book has the same feel and charm including wonderful illustrations. The author and illustrator have really hit the mark and made a wonderful continuation to Chitty's storry.
If you love Chitty Chitty Bang Bang as a movie find a copy of the origional Ian Flemming book to read and then read this one.
