Traction Man is Here

Publisher: Random House

Mini Grey’s sense of humour is in full surreal flow in this book. For Traction Man, feats of derring-do are all in a day’s work.

Do your toy animals need rescuing from evil pillows? Are your dolls in danger of being buried alive? Traction Man always saves the day with aplomb.

One day, though, his confidence takes a severe knock when Granny knits him an all-in-one green wool outfit with matching cap. Transformed in an instant from combat cool to sartorial nightmare, can Traction Man ever be a superhero again?

Readers so inclined can easily discern a positive message about one’s true nature residing within. Most, however, will be happy simply to revel in Grey’s wild imagination.
