Chitty Chitty Bang Bang by Ian Fleming
Okay, this was super cute. I saw the film as a kid (and somehow didn’t realise that the movie was co-written by Roald Dahl???) and I knew it was based on a book (and somehow didn’t know it was by James Bond‘s writer! I’m a loser, honestly) but I never got around to it. So glad I finally have. I think it’s lovely that this was written for Ian Fleming’s son. Reminds me of C.S. Lewis’ dedication to his goddaughter: But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.
And the fact that David Tennant narrated the audiobook just solidifies its awesomeness. His voices are PERFECTION.
How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell
And that, my friends, that is the hard way to become a hero.
THIS WAS SO BLOODY CUTE. The names are adorable. It’s all adorable. TOTES ADORBS. Definitely recommend for anyone who wants a cute little book about a boy and his dragon.
