author’s comments:
Ian Fleming, famous for creating James Bond, also loved fast cars—and this love spurred him to write his only children's book, for his little boy, Caspar, about a car that could fly. Published just after Fleming's death in 1964, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: The Magical Car became an immediate bestseller. It has been reinvented as a musical and as a film (with the screenplay written by Roald Dahl) and inspired two sequels written by Frank Cottrell Boyce.
