Ian Fleming's treasured classic soars in a deluxe edition featuring John Burningham's vibrant, full-color original illustrations. Famous for creating James Bond, Ian Fleming also loved fast cars -- and this passion inspired him to write his only children's book, penned for his young son, Caspar. Published fifty years ago in 1964, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: The Magical Car introduced the world to the thrilling adventures of the "crackpot" Pott family and the flying car with a mind of her own. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang became an instant bestseller that has been reinvented as a musical and a film (with a screenplay co-written by Roald Dahl) and has also inspired three sequels written by Frank Cottrell Boyce. Now, to honor half a century of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Candlewick Press presents a full-color gift edition ready to zoom straight into hearts of a new generation.
