But first, here's what 11 year old J thinks of Timmy Failure. We were sent books 1 and 2 so J has written a little review for each.
Timmy Failure - Mistakes Were Made
Timmy runs a detective agency with his pet polar bear called Total. He has a lot of cases to solve and he uses his mother's Segway as his failuremobile. He leaves it outside whilst talking about an important case but it gets stolen! Timmy lies and says that it is needed for a play. Timmy has to try to get it back before his mum finds out that her Segway is missing. Total has to be sent to a zoo as a result of bad grades. I give this book 10 out of 10.
Timmy Failure - Now Look What You've Done
This book is hot off the press as it has only recently been released.
Timmy is trying to win a detective contest where you have to find out who took the missing globe. With Total, his polar bear, he is determined to win the contest. Unfortunately, Corrina Corrina (his arch-enemy) has entered the contest as well.
Total gets distracted a lot and tries to eat torpedo Bob (his aunt's parrot.) After he misses the deadline he tries to get sent to Glouberman academy- the school for naughty kids. Glouberman academy have their deadline a month after every other school so he wants to hand in his entry there. The winner will be announced at a school dance. The theme is a night in Paris.
Thanks J for the reviews. Both my boys really enjoyed these books. They are a fun read and there are plenty of cool illustrations throughout.
9 year old D loves drawing comic style characters and just this evening I found this in his room:
I thought this really was a great little touch to the book as it's going to give kids the confidence to have a go at drawing and actually end up with pretty great results!
