(B+) 77% | Good Notes: Is this the real world, or is it magical? This family is much too quick to accept that their car is enchanted and sentient.
While most famous for his work on creating Agent 007, Ian Fleming wrote this classic children's story many years ago, which entertains as much as it captures the interest of many young readers. Commander Caractacus Pott has a long history of inventing things, which provides limited success and force Leggi tutto
I think every avid reader must have a list (even if it's just in their head and not actually written down) of books they would like to read, but never seem to find the time. My list of "someday'' reads is quite extensive, but I have vowed that this year I will read more books from my own library she Leggi tutto
"I'm not interested in your Shitty Shitty Gang Bang ," is essentially what I told my bestbud back in elementary school when he was trying with all his ernest might to make me see the light and enjoy the wholesome, family-fun goodness that is this book. This was at a time when he was listening to Weir Leggi tutto
"Never say no to adventures. Always say yes. Otherwise you'll lead a very dull life." Too, too cute! I'm glad this lighthearted kids' novel was selected as a buddy read. The way Commander Pott took care of the car reminded me so much of my father-washing, waxing, spot check before and after driving. Leggi tutto
I've wanted to read this book since I first found out it was written by Ian Fleming. This is the only novel he ever wrote that wasn't part of the James Bond series and it's a bizarre little oddity. If, like me, your only previous experience of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is the movie, you're in for some Leggi tutto

Inside was a 1914 chain drive 75 horsepower 6-cylinder Maybach airplane engine…in 1921 Chitty won the Hundred MPH at Brooklands and again in 1922 followed by an acciden Leggi tutto
James Bond, the children's book begat James Bond, the musical begat James Bond, the stage show. But where can we go from here? It occurred to me to google "James Bond Ballet", and I did at least find this picture: Surely it's now just a matter of time before it actually happens?
"Never say 'no' to adventures." This was a complete and utter delight. I've been a fan of the movie/musical since I was a small child, so when I saw that David Tennant had narrated this audiobook, I picked it up. What's inside is a story that's far different than the film, but just as whimsical and
What a surprise to find just how different the movie is from the book! This is very much Ian Flemming, focused on the car and the adventure. There is no 'Truly Scrumptious'; there is no weird castle with singing toys and a king who hates kids. There IS a wonderful magical car, and exact descriptions Leggi tutto
