"Chitty Chitty Bang Bang The Magical Car" written by Ian Fleming with illustrations by John Burningham. Published by Random House, copyright 1964.
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang went the great car's exhaust pipes, and the big green Paragon Panther roared to life. The Pott family knew that their car was no ordinary car. The twins, Jeremy and Jemima, had noticed that right off. Her license plate read GFN 11, and that could be read genii by knowing people.
There was something magical about her, too. The Potters found that out soon enough. The great car could be an airplane or a boat when she had a mind to. So the Potts took a sea voyage from their English home and, by chance, found a gangster's hidden cave across the Channel in France.
It was the cave that really got the adventurous Pott family into trouble. It belonged to a mob of gangsters - Joe the Monster, Man - Mountain Fink, Soapy Sam, and Blood-Money Banks.
Could the famous inventor Commander Caractacus Potter, his wife Mimsie, and the twins escape the clutches of Joe the Monster and his mob? Their only hope, their only ally was Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang and she was just a car-or was she?
