Traction Man and the Beach Odyssey
It's holiday time for Traction Man and that can only mean a gripping new escapade!
Traction Man and Scrubbing Brush are at the beach! Traction Man even has his special Squid-Proof Scuba Suit, perfect for exploring the secret crevices of the Rockpool.

Join the daring duo as they meet new challenges ... and new friends.

Grey supplies equal doses of humor and heroics in the zippy illustrations that play out the dual dramas on both human and miniature scales . . . A surefire theme worth revisiting and even moreso when done with this much panacheIan Chipman, Booklist
