When the Tooting family find a vast abandoned engine and fit it to their camper van, they have no idea of the adventure that lies ahead. The engine used to belong to an extraordinary flying car - and it wants to be back on the road again...fast!
The Tootings can haul on the steering wheel and pull the hand brake as hard as they like, but their camper van now has a mind of her own. It's not long before they're hurtling along on a turbocharged chase as Chitty tracks down her long-lost bodywork. But there are sinister forces at work, too. When it comes to a car as special as Chitty, everybody wants a piece of her.

I was a bit worried when I saw that there were sequels to the original Ian Fleming book but I needn't have worried. Frank Cottrell-Boyce draws a line somewhere between the original and the film and brings us bang up to date with a bit of James Bond homage thrown in.
My six year old son thoroughly enjoyed it. There are plenty of cliff hangers and David Tennant's narration is great (again).
