LoveReading View on Traction Man is Here

Mini Grey has been selected as one of The Big Picture campaign's Best New Illustrators in 2008. Short listed for the Blue Peter Book Awards - Best Illustrated book to read aloud 2006.

The whole thing is very well controlled, and has a subtle sophistication which means you see more things each time you look at it.
