Traction Man Meets Turbodog
Mini Grey celebrates loyalty and friendship in this fabulously witty sequel to her critically acclaimed picture book, Traction Man Is Here.
Traction Man is back! And so is Scrubbing Brush, his brave and rather bedraggled pet. But one night Scrubbing Brush myseriously vanishes and in his place is the utterly hygenic Turbodog, in indestructible Purple Plastic with Flashing Eyes, Electronic Bark and three AA batteries. But it's not the same without Scrubbing Brush. Where can he be? Traction Man sets out on his greatest rescue mission yet. Can he save Scrubbing Brush from? And is there room in his life for two pets?
Praise for Traction Man Meets Turbodog
Mini Grey's comic-strip story, with its busy frames and witty filmic references, celebrates true friendship, dirt and all.The Guardian
I can't recommend Traction Man Meets Turbo Dog highly enough. It would be fabulous to share with a three year-old, but a six or seven year-old newly confident reader would love it too ... A witty and surreal picture book that's suitable for both reading aloud and first attempts at reading alone. It's slightly subversive in a Toy Story way, but is absolutely and utterly British. Don't miss it.thebookbag.co.uk
Another brilliant picture book from Mini Grey, whose sense of humour and adventure, love of the language of the toy box and understanding of childhood fantasy is matched by her pictorial invention and a skill at characterisation that can make even a scrubbing brush appealing...Dare I say it, this is even better than Traction Man is Here.Books for Keeps
