Hilarious action-packed new adventures for the intrepid Traction Man and his popular side-kick, Scrubbing Brush, in this fantastic sequel by prize-winning illustrator Mini Grey. After an intrepid exploration of the compost heap, Scrubbing Brush returns so dirty that the foolish adults put him in the bin. Turbo Dog arrives to take his place as companion and best-friend but soon proves to be no substitute. Traction Man sets out to find his friend and triumphantly returns with him having rescued him from the perils of the dark and terrible underworld of the Bin. Comic strip in style, this is rich in visual and verbal jokes which will repay reading and rereading many times. Traction Man is Here is also available.

Synopsis

Traction Man Meets Turbo Dog by Mini Grey
