5+: Traction Man and the Beach Odyssey - Mini Grey

Release Date: 07/07/11


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.


Mini Grey is one of those authors who comes up with something not only unusual but something that really is a bit of a cult classic in the field of childrens titles. Here in this, the second Traction Man story he undergoes an adventure in the garden with a firm mission in mind as well as objectives that really keeps this title moving along at quite a pace. It’s quirky, it’s a lot of fun and when you add into it the nostalgic feel for the reader (assuming it’s a parent) it’s a story that will quite quickly find a way into your own heart alongside the childrens.

All in this was as much fun for me as for my nephews and whilst they were a little confused with it, when I showed them one of my old Action Man’s (yep the Side to side eye ones in his scuba gear) their eyes soon lit up. Great fun.
