Timmy Is No Failure

Failure is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm. ~Sir Winston Churchill

This should be Timmy Failure’s motto. And who is Timmy Failure?

You may have heard about him. You may have read about him. You may even know him. Failure. Failure. Failure.

Yes, that’s Timmy’s last name – Failure. But Timmy Failure is no failure. He is the founder, president, and CEO of Failure, Inc. – a detective agency. That’s quite an achievement for someone who believes he’s on the right track, baby, but happens to miss his mark more often than not. He has his friends. He has his enemies. He has his nuisances. And he has his business partner, Total, a polar bear. Don’t ask why. Just read the book!

Timmy Failure is funny in a quirky way. It’s like the Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Dork Diaries had a head-on crash and the result was a “failure.” It’s a perfect choice for those hard-to-please readers looking for that just-right book.

 Timmy Failure Mistakes Were Made was written and artfully illustrated by Stephan Pastis, creator of Pearls Before Swine fame. Look for the next “failure,” Timmy Failure Now Look What You’ve Done, in February of 2014. How many failures can there be? I hope more.
