5 July 2012 Traction Man (Book 3)

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. But there are adventures in store for our intrepid hero as he faces the thrills of Operation Picnic, the tribulation of being buried in sand and - worst of all - being washed away by a giant wave...

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

Product Description


"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 panache" (Ian Chipman Booklist)

"Grey expertly skewers toy marketing (an endpaper spread showcasing Beach Time Brenda’s many accessories is especially wonderful) while creating comedic, large-scale dramas in a child-sized world" (Publishers Weekly)

"Grey fills the spreads with color and action, providing plenty of high jinks and hilarious happenings" (School Library Journal)

"Traction Man is back, but is he ready for the likes of Beach-Time Brenda™? . . . A wonderfully satirical, action-packed romp that echoes the grand tradition of comic books as it ingeniously communicates the complete absorption of imaginative play" (Kirkus)

Book Description

It's holiday time for Traction Man and that can only mean a gripping new escapade!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book & in perfect condition 24 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We had the first Traction Man book which we bought second hand and I was so impressed with the use of imagination from Mini Grey that I had to get the other 2 books in the series. It's exactly how kids think when allowed to use their imaginations and not using technology or glued to the telly, it's also hugely amusing to read to your kids as an adult. Definitely recommend this for boys and girls, enjoy!
