Quotes & Awards

  • “The car is magical. So is the book.”


  • “From the same stable as Thunderball, et al.: same excitement, same wonderful imagination. The car really lives.”

    Scotsman (Edinburgh)

  • “Fleming’s rollicking story of the Potts family and their magical car is a great family read-aloud, with plenty of action.”

    Library Journal

  • “Delightful! Sounding confiding, cheeky, and very British indeed, actor David Tennant relates Fleming’s 1964 story of a magical car…Tennant narrates with relish, especially when he gets to sound her GA-GOOOO-GA klaxon. It’s the perfect way to introduce a new audience to this charming British classic.”

    " I thought it was very odd that the same person who wrote this is the same person who wrote James Bond. But even though Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a kids book, there are a few similarities- chasing criminals and cars with lots of gadgets. But I don't think James Bond ever had a car as magnificent as Chitty Chitty Bang Bang! "

    " Cute book to read aloud with kids. I was surprised at how different it was from the movie. Still cute and whimsical though. Easy read. "
