Ian Fleming / Fleming became world famous for his series of novels (and two collections of short stories) about international super-spy James Bond. It’s hard to imagine a less likely source for a classic children’s picture book than the creator of the martini-drinking, damsel-bedding, thug-slaying 007, but after telling his son, Caspar, a series of bedtime stories about a car than can fly and float and alert its driver to danger, Fleming wrote the story down and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was born.
IAN FLEMING, Author, Journalist, Spy ~ James Bond began as a series of spy novels, written by Ian Fleming (pictured above) and launched the longest running movie franchise in Hollywood. Six actors have played James Bond in the film series. In addition, two actor have portrayed James Bond in a television episode and a comedy spoof, based on Ian Fleming’s first novel Casino Royale.
