Reviews

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(TM)? ... 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
