4/5 stars

I might be the only only one on the planet that has never seen the movie let alone read the book. Went in totally blind. My copy was a Mother's Day gift from son #1, good choice Matt!

We all know Ian Fleming of the James Bond fame, yes they were books first. This book however is his only children's story.

Not knowing what to expect made this all the more fun to read. It's quick with some interesting illustrations. The story was magical, funny and entertaining.

Not sure there is much more to add to this review. I will probably watch the movie, but will do with the  grandkids are around.

This book was part of my 2022 Reading Off My Shelf Challenge (#11)
