Book by Jeremy Sams, based on Ian Fleming's original work
Written by Ian Fleming and originally published in hardback in three parts. The story concerns a madcap inventor named Caractacus Potts, a widower who delights in eccentric gadgets. He sets about restoring an old car from a scrap heap with the help of his two children, and a lady friend named Truly Scrumptious. However, when the car develops magical properties it comes under the evil eye of Baron Bomburst. The story was turned into a hugely popular movie in 1968, starring Dick Van Dyke and Sally Ann Howes.
