Praise
Starred Review, School Library Journal, August 2008:
"[Grey's] inventive scenes celebrate the joy in equipping a doll for adventure and re-envisioning the everyday."

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, August 4, 2008:
"[Grey's] real gift is in transforming an ordinary household into both thrilling stage and supporting cast."

Starred Review, The Horn Book Magazine, September/October 2008:
"Grey extends the first book's irreverent wit and affection for her characters in this playful demonstration of why high-tech doesn't necessarily equal high-performance."

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, August 15, 2008:
"Hilarious details lurk throughout, and readers won't want to miss even one."

Starred Review, Booklist, September 1, 2008:
"Created with wit and finesse, this picture book is fun for reading aloud and rewarding on many levels."

Starred Review, The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, October 2008:
"Readers will revel in [Traction Man's] triumph over both adult misunderstanding and nefarious opposition."
