"Readers will be breathless as they follow the zany action to its conclusion. Black-and-white illustrations nicely augment the adventures and characters and the pacing is breakneck." —SLJ
"Well-stocked with thrills [...] the daffy series zooms to its finish line in suitable high-octane style. Berger's droll character and spot vignettes add plenty of carbonation. One last exhilarating ride: "Ga GOOO ga!!!!" —Kirkus
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Over the Moon
Joe Berger (Illustrator)
Candlewick Press / 2014
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.
