Description
With the proceeds from his latest invention, Crackpot Whistling Sweets, Commander Caractacus Pott buys his family their first car. It looks like a wreck, but once restored it turns out to be no ordinary vehicle: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a magical car which can fly, swim and even think. Chitty and the eccentric, plucky Pott family set off on a succession of increasingly perilous adventures that take them across the English Channel and all the way to Paris.Since it was first published in 1964, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang has become a worldwide phenomenon and has charmed generations of children. Gloriously illustrated by Joe Berger, and with a ribbon marker and a specially commissioned foreword, this beautiful hardback Macmillan Classics edition of Ian Fleming's Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a truly wonderful gift to treasure.
