Product Description

Second in the brand new series of Chitty adventures written by star author Frank Cottrell Boyce!

Uh-oh! Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is stuck in reverse. Baby Harry’s pressed a button that means she’s reversing through time – with the Tootings aboard. When they finally come to a stop, it’s at the feet of a very hungry-looking T-rex. Can the Tootings make a super-speedy escape – or will they all be eaten alive? More fast-paced thrills with the world’s coolest car, driven by the world’s most hapless family!

Praise for the series:

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again is already being dubbed truly scrumptious by the original author’s family.” Daily Mail

“[This] sequel to kids’ favourite Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is set to fly off the shelves.” The Sun

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.
