Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the Race Against Time is the second book of three sequels to Ian Flemings Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

The sequels were commissioned by Ian Fleming's family, the first book in the series, written by Frank Cottrell Boyce, was Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again!

The hardcover edition was released on September 12, 2012 in the UK and on March 13, 2013 in the US.

David Tennant was chosen, also by the Fleming family, to be the narrator for the audio version of the first book and it was announced on January 7, 2013 that David had finished recording Race Against Time.  The release date should be by the end of 2013.


Synopsis: 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 T. rex is charging them! Thanks to Dad’s inadvertent yanking of Chitty’s "Chronojuster" lever, the spirited car has ushered them back to prehistoric times, where the family (and especially Baby Harry) make a narrow escape.

But Chitty has a mind of her own, and the Tootings 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.

The third book in the series is called Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Over the Moon.  The hardcover book will be published on September 26, 2013.

"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 nicked 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 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. . ." =
