Praise

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.
