Caractacus Pott, an inventor and explorer, has invented a lot of stuff, including square potatoes, collapsible coat hangers, and edible phonograph records, which haven't fetched a lot of money. But one day, he invents something really good: a type of candy that you can whistle with! Caractacus gets money for his invention, and then the Pott family has enough money for a car! But they don't want something boring and everyday, they want a SPECIAL car. After looking for a day, they find an old car that's going to be melted for metal and decide that it's perfect. Soon, they discover something unusual about the car; it can think! Not only that, it can fly! Then, the family decides to go to France, where they discover the hideout of an infamous gangster, Joe the Monster. Can the family, along with Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, outwit him and his gang? I liked how it seemed like the author was talking directly to you, and the book was also very exciting, though it was a bit short.

The wings slowly tilted, and as Commander Pott, at last realizing what CHITTY-CHITTY-BANG-BANG was up to, pressed down the accelerator pedal, the big green car tilted up her shining green and silver nose and took off! Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, invented "Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang" for his young son Caspar, and it went on to become the most famous and best-loved car in fiction. This treasured story inspired a film and a musical and is celebrated in this lavish, highly collectible new edition, complete with its original timeless artwork by John Burningham, one of Britain's most popular author/illustrators.
