Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the Race Against Time by Frank Cottrell Boyce
We read the first book in the revived Chitty Chitty Bang Bang series so quickly that we had to get the second one: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the Race Against Time.
If you loved the original Chitty story, you’ll love this revival.
Everyone’s favorite flying car shifts into another dimension as the intrepid Tooting family zooms back and forth through time.
When the Tootings return to Zobrowski Terrace at the end of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again, they find that home is looking a lot like Jurassic Park. But this is no theme park – a very real and very hungry Tyrannosaurus rex is charging them! Thanks to Dad inadvertently yanking Chitty’s “Chronojuster” lever, the spirited car has flown them back to prehistoric times, where the family – and especially Baby Harry – has a narrow escape. But Chitty has a mind of her own, and theTootings will get an unexpected tour of exciting times and places from Prohibition-era New York, where Chitty wants to compete in the famous Prix d’Esmerelda’s Birthday Cake race, to the lost city of El Dorado and back again, with misadventures and surprise stowaways along the way. Get ready for a hilarious high-flying adventure, with celebrated author Frank Cottrell Boyce behind the wheel.
