Reviews

This second authorized sequel sends the reconstructed car with a mind of its own careening from the Cretaceous to the Jazz Age, Venezuela to the Wild West, while folding in references and tributes to Ian Fleming's classic tale. --Kirkus Reviews Featuring a near-dizzying array of characters--including a reunion with suave first Chitty owner Mr. Zborowski--and events, from car races to kidnapping to run-ins with anacondas, this is a lively, entertaining read that those familiar with the previous title will especially enjoy. Digitally rendered, cartoonish illustrations add retro flair. --Booklist Online Frank Cottrell Boyce preserves the charm of the original while delivering a madcap escapade that a new generation of youngsters will love. --BookPage Children's Corner Boys in particular will appreciate the race's death-defying moments and the continued mad-cap escapades, chases, kidnappings and narrow escapes. --BookPage Life with the Tootings is the wildest Sunday drive imaginable. --Publishers Weekly Hilarious fun. --Yellow Brick Road
