Traction Man

by Mini Grey

One Potato Review

A boy and his doll. A doll and his dog (a scrubbing brush actually). Riotous throughout, but there’s even a little pathos in the second act when Traction Man receives a lovely all-in-one knitted green romper suit and matching bonnet for Christmas. Oh well, an action figure must do what an action figure must do. Simple text for very young readers, with knowing, irrepressible wit that is reason enough for everyone else to revisit.
