This book is full of the wild imaginative details and comic-strip energy that define all Grey's picture books. Korky Paul, S Magazine, Sunday Express What I love is the kid's imagination and how fantastic and fun the adventures are that he creates for Traction Man! Turning everyday chores into something exciting becomes a breeze when Traction Man is around!I really wasn't sure what to expect from this story. I'd never heard of it before, but it was featured as one of the selections for the Toys themed reads for the Picture-Book Club in the Children's Books Group here at Goodreads. Readers so inclined can easily discern a positive message about one’s true nature residing within. Most, however, will be happy simply to revel in Grey’s wild imagination.

I will try this book with kid at a later date as she's on vacation with her grandparents. It's definitely a strange book, very masculine to the point of being a bit sexist and stereotypical. Traction Man, who wears combat boots, battle pants, and his warfare shirt, comes in a box like many action figures. However, he is found and owned by a very imaginative little boy. The superhero goes on many action filled adventures, like leaping buildings, that his owner sets his mind out for. This book is a wonderful way to experience the way an imaginative child carries out play. Create a set of speech / thought bubbles for Traction Man at different points in the story to explain how he is feeling. Can you tell by his facial expressions and body language?There’s a lot to talk about, here, and you can find out which part of the story children like best and talk about the reasons why.
