Mini Grey is a consistently brilliant writer and illustrator, brimming with ideas and invention, and this is another triumph. - The Daily Telegraph
Mini Grey's comic-strip story, with its busy frames and witty filmic references, celebrates true friendship, dirt and all. - The Guardian
Another brilliant picture book from Mini Grey, whose sense of humour and adventure, love of the language of the toy box and understanding of childhood fantasy is matched by her pictorial invention and a skill at characterisation that can make even a scrubbing brush appealing...Dare I say it, this is even better than Traction Man is Here. - Books for Keeps
I can't recommend Traction Man Meets Turbo Dog highly enough. It would be fabulous to share with a three year-old, but a six or seven year-old newly confident reader would love it too.
A witty and surreal picture book that's suitable for both reading aloud and first attempts at reading alone. It's slightly subversive in a Toy Story way, but is absolutely and utterly British. Don't miss it. - thebookbag.co.uk
This is a brilliant and playful parody of an action-hero drama by quirky writer Mini Grey - Junior
The retro superhero Traction Man is back for another madcap domestic adventure...All the excellent details in the pictures make this a hugely entertaining story from award-winning author/illustrator - TBK
Armed with suoer strong Germo, our dynamic hero is in action again. - Blackbird Pie
Perfect for reading aloud with little ones, or for first time readers to try on their own. - Maternity and Infant
A glorious antidote to boneheaded machismo, unobtrusively Green, and a visual feast of wit and boundless imagination. A gem. - Carousel
