Praise

“The car is magical. So is the book.” Vogue

“From the same stable as Thunderball, et al.: same excitement, same wonderful imagination. The car really lives.” Scotsman (Edinburgh)

“Fleming’s rollicking story of the Potts family and their magical car is a great family read-aloud, with plenty of action.” Library Journal

“Delightful! Sounding confiding, cheeky, and very British indeed, actor David Tennant relates Fleming’s 1964 story of a magical car…Tennant narrates with relish, especially when he gets to sound her GA-GOOOO-GA klaxon. It’s the perfect way to introduce a new audience to this charming British classic.” AudioFile
