Hurrah for Traction Man, the toy hero who, with his faithful side kick Scrubbing Brush, is up for adventures anytime and anyplace. They’ll tackle any challenge and bravely fight their way through to success. But, when Traction Man is given a green knitted suit he has to find new reserves of courage to survive the indignity of such an outfit. Wonderful jokes make this make-believe world come alive for all. Traction Man meets Turbo Dog is also brilliant.

Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers. To view other titles we think are suitable for reluctant readers please click here.

Synopsis

Traction Man Is Here (Book & CD) by Mini Grey

With an action outfit for every occasion, Traction Man patrols the house. He is never less than stylishly turned out and accessorised. He is the last word in fashion flair until he is presented with a knitted green romper suit and matching bonnet. Can he overcome the humiliation of his dowdy look and rediscover the action hero within?

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
