From the award-winning Frank Cottrell Boyce comes the third official sequel to Ian Fleming’s Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
The Tootings are stuck in 1966! Somebody’s stolen Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and left them behind. But that’s not their biggest problem. Their biggest problem is that Little Harry’s been kidnapped by whoever stole their magical car. There’s only one solution: the Tootings must find the Potts — the family that originally built Chitty. Sharing their combined knowledge of how Chitty works, the families may stand a chance of rescuing Little Harry and finding the most brilliant car in the world. But a fiendish criminal has different plans, ones that involve flying Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to the moon and putting an explosive scheme into action.

As he did with the rest of the series, Boyce keeps up a zippy pace and provides a fantastic, adventure-filled plot, taking the Tootings and Potts from the North Pole to the moon. But after all the dizzying action, he ends the series thoughtfully and happily, while still leaving a glimmer of a chance for more Chitty stories in the future. —Booklist Online
