From the Ian Fleming Estate and Publications, “Famous for creating James Bond, Ian Fleming also loved fast cars — and this passion inspired him to write his only children’s book which was published in 1964. ‘Crackpot’ is what everybody calls the Pott family. So when they go to buy a new car and come back with a wreck, nobody is surprised … except for the Potts themselves. First, the car has a name … Then they find out that she can fly and swim! Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a car on a mission to stop a criminal gang in its tracks — and she is taking the Potts with her! Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was a story which Ian Fleming created for his son Caspar at bedtime — now you can jump into the world’s most loved magical car for her first adventure!”
