A fantastic second installment in the imaginative Traction Man series! I can't help but wonder though, did Turbo Dog dive in? Or was he pushed?
Particularly enjoyable if read to the tune of the Condor Man theme.
This book made no sense.
It looks cool, with lots of pictures, which made it easy to read.
The indomitable square-jawed hero from Traction Man is Here! returns in this 2nd hilarious, action-packed adventure of the imagination. After ascending Mt. Compost Heap (guided by an Ancient Potato who talks like Yoda), Traction Man and his faithful companion Scrubbing Brush must cross the muddy pond to get back home. Scrubbing Brush falls into the mud and comes out filthy, prompting germ-conscious Dad to replace him on the sly with the "utterly hygienic," robotic Turbodog. But Traction Man misses Scrubbing Brush and is determined to find him -- even if it means doing battle with the Evil Creatures in the trash bin!

This is a wonderful book about the adventures of an action figure and his trusty sidekick, a scrubbrush dog. When the dog gets too dirty, it is thrown away and a new, electronic dog is introduced into the home. This is a whimsical, wonderful book that subtly rails against commercialism while extolling the value of imaginative play. A wonderful book.
