Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and The Race Against Time
|Series:||Chitty Chitty Bang Bang|
Uh-oh! Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is stuck in reverse. And Baby Harry's pressed a button that means she's reversing through time - with the Tootings aboard. When they finally come to a stop, it's at the feet of a very hungry-looking T-rex. How are the Tootings -- and Chitty -- going to get out of this one? More fun, fast, feel-good adventure with the world's greatest car ...driven by the world's most hapless family.
Almost fifty years ago, Ian Fleming, author of James Bond, wrote Chitty Chitty Bang Bang as a bedtime story for his son. Now filling Chitty's tank with his trademark wit, warmth and sense of story, Frank Cottrell Boyce jumps into the driving seat and takes Chitty into the twenty-first century. He is the award-winning author of Millions, Framed and Cosmic. He is also a successful writer of film scripts and, along with Danny Boyle, has devised the Opening Ceremony for the 2012 Olympics. Joe Berger is a prize-winning illustrator and animator. In 2011 he was a winner of Booktrust's Best New Illustrators Award. In 2010 Joe was the official illustrator for World Book Day.
