Description - Traction Man Meets Turbodog by Mini Grey

Traction Man is back! And so is Scrubbing Brush, his brave and rather bedraggled pet who stays by his side through thick and thin. But one night Scrubbing Brush mysteriously vanishes and in his place is the utterly hygienic Turbodog, in indestructible Purple Plastic with Flashing Eyes, Electronic Bark and three AA batteries. Together, Traction Man and Turbodog creep through the underpants and cross the wastes of the Sandpit. But it's not the same without Scrubbing Brush. Where can he be? Traction Man searches everywhere until at last he hears a faint bark coming from the Dark and Terrible UnderWorld of the Bin. Wearing his Airtight Astro-suit with Glass Head-Globe and armed with a bottle of SuperStrong GERMO (with Ammonia), Traction Man sets out on his greatest rescue mission yet. Can he save Scrubbing Brush from the evil Bin Things? And is there room in his life for two pets?
