Traction Man and the Beach Odyssey by Mini Grey

Traction Man and the Beach Odyssey Traction Man is here again!

The star of Mini Grey’s previous books, Traction Man , and Traction Man Meets Turbo Dog, returns in an adventure that will take him to the beach–but not in the way that you might expect! While everyone else is having a quick dip in the water before lunch, Traction Man is kidnapped by Granny’s dog, and neither his faithful Scrubbing Brush nor his mighty panoply of equipment can prevent it! What will he do??

The granite-jawed Traction Man (obviously a toy, but so much more!) and noble, anthropomorphized Scrubbing Brush’s trip back to safety involves another dog, frighteningly-accessorized dollies, raspberry-ripple ice cream, and a large quantity of seaweed.

As in all previous outings, Mini Grey’s hilarious illustrations and comic-style text boxes pack an astonishing amount of detail onto each page, while never distracting from the story. While a summer story, this book would be perfect for those going on a winter vacation to warmer climes, or just for someone who wants a little bit of warmth injected into their November.
