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™? . . . A wonderfully satirical, action-packed romp that echoes the grand tradition of comic books as it ingeniously communicates the complete absorption of imaginative play"
