Traction Man--wearing combat boots, battle pants, and his warfare shirt--comes in a box, but very quickly finds the way into the imagination of his lucky boy owner. This superhero searches for the Lost Wreck of the Sieve as the boy makes a game of doing the dishes, and later in the bathtub, he conquers the Mysterious Toes that are stealing his pet, the brave little Scrubbing Brush. These are just a few of the action-packed adventures played out by the boy and his new toy that may not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but can vanquish all manner of villains lurking around the house. Mini Grey's story in words and pictures is an irresistible invitation to the private world of a child's play.

Praise for The Very Smart Pea and the Princess-to-Be :

"A rib-tickling U.S. debut for Grey, with plenty of sight gags to complement the chatty narrative."-- Kirkus Reviews

" The Very Smart Pea and the Princess-to-Be delivers an entertaining spin and a great deal of visual wit."-- The Horn Book

Great picture book for boys! We loved the imagination the boy has in creating Traction Man's adventures with regular around the house objects. Traction Man's reaction to Grandma' knitted outfit is hilarious.
