In this new and exciting Traction Man escapade, the can-do action toy and his faithful pet Scrubbing Brush are headed to the Wide Ocean. Adventure is on the horizon for our daring duo, along with new challenges—and new friends—to meet. There's a picnic to defend (a quiche to protect!), colossal waves, giant seaweed, elusive rockpool animals . . . and the lovely Beachtime Brenda.
Mini Grey, winner of the Boston Globe-Horn Book Picture Book Award for Traction Man Is Here!, scores another victory for imaginative play. Sure to delight existing Traction Man fans and captivate new ones.
Mini Grey's last picture book, "Traction Man Is Here!," won the 2005 "Boston Globe-Horn Book "Award and received five starred reviews.
