Product Description

The world’s most famous flying car is back in the air! A sky-high caper by the Millions man. Carnegie Medal winner Frank Cottrell Boyce revives 007 creator Ian Fleming’s classic Chitty series. Result: a crazy flight of imagination. One day, the Tooting family find a vast abandoned engine. What should they do with it? Fit it to their camper van, of course. Trouble is, that engine used to belong to a magical flying car. And it wants to get back on the road (and into the air) again! As the ghost of Chitty races off find her long-lost bodywork, the startled Tootings have no idea what’s going on. Then Chitty’s old enemies join the chase… Fast, furious and totally delightful.

Frank Cottrell Boyce is a screenwriter whose films include Welcome to Sarajevo, Hilary and Jackie and Millions, which was also his first book. He has also written episodes of Coronation Street and Brookside, so you probably know his stories from your TV set. He also wrote the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony! His first children’s book Millions won the Carnegie medal, and was made into a film by Danny Boyle. He used to run a Punch and Judy show, earning a fortune in small change, and just like Damian in Millions, he is a Catholic who is fascinated by stories of the saints. He is not a millionaire and has no plans to rob a bank! However, during a short-lived career as an assistant at a puppet show, he earned a fortune entirely in small change. He believes this is how he first became interested in the problems created by user-unfriendly cash. Just like Damian in Millions, he is a Catholic who is fascinated by stories of the saints.

His second book, Framed was inspired by a news story he’d read in an old scrapbook: During the Second World War, a collection of valuable paintings from the National Gallery was hidden in a slate mine for safekeeping. He couldn’t resist imagining how all of that great art might have affected the people who lived near the mine.

Frank lives in Liverpool, with his wife and family of seven children.
