Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Reading Competition Coming This September!

Literacy Trust are releasing their latest challenge this September - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang themed!

In the original story, the magical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang car takes the Pott family on a very special journey. To take part in the competition, children will go on their very own magical reading tour, spending time reading, both at home and at school, in order to fuel Chitty’s tank.

For every 10 minutes they spend reading, children will earn one litre of fuel for the tank, 10 hours (or 60 litres!) in total. They will record their reading in their very own “Driver’s Log”, and every child who successfully fills Chitty’s fuel tank and completes their magical reading tour will be entered into a national prize draw.
One child will be randomly selected as the winner from all entries submitted. They will receive:
an eReader, book vouchers, a copy of the full Chitty Chitty Bang Bang series, original artwork from Chitty illustrator Joe Berger, a 'school library makeover' for their school (£500 worth of books of their choice from Macmillan Children's Books' catalogue to revamp the library).

Five runners up will also receive a copy of Ian Fleming’s original Chitty Chitty Bang Bang series as well as signed copies of the three Chitty sequels by Frank Cottrell Boyce.

If that wasn’t exciting enough, children will also be invited to write a short story about Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’s next adventure, based on a story starter from none other than Frank Cottrell Boyce (author of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again and two further Chitty sequels) for the chance to win more great prizes.
The winner of the bonus category, “Chitty’s next adventure”, will be chosen by panel of judges and will receive an eReader, book vouchers and a copy of the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang series.
