Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, also wrote which children’s book?



Chitty Chitty Bang Bang




Answer: Ian Fleming is a 20th-century novelist known for inventing the popular spy character James Bond. Fleming also wrote the popular children’s book Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, a story about a magical car, to entertain his son. Fleming took his inspiration for the subject from a series of aero-engined racing cars called “Chitty Bang Bang”, built by Count Louis Zborowski.




Fleming did not live to see Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang published: he suffered a heart attack on August 11, 1964 and died in the early morning of the following day—his son Caspar’s twelfth birthday. The book was published two months after his death.
