Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Any sequel worth the name would require plenty of crackpot humor and absurd villains and a dose of magical realism, all of which happily burst from the pages of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again…that puts the famous racing car in a modern setting…A jolly good ride.” Wall Street Journal
“Sir Ian Fleming’s heirs, who have commissioned numerous James Bond sequels, turned to Boyce to continue Fleming’s 1964 story Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: The Magical Car, and Boyce delivers…Hilarious and endlessly entertaining.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Although the story is inventive and picturesque, with billionaire crooks, a visit to Madagascar, and a guest appearance on a French reality show called Car Stupide, most of the humor in this very funny novel is a result of the family’s interactions with one another…This witty sequel to Ian Fleming's 1964 novel stands on its own equally well.” School Library Journal (starred review)
