Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made

Wednesday's Maximum Shelf was all about an upcoming Candlewick title:  Timmy Failure:  Mistakes Were Made, by Stephen Pastis.  Call us to talk about ordering the display...we're expecting great things!

To see the book trailer: click here.

Visit the Timmy Failure website.

Take eleven-year-old Timmy Failure—the clueless, comically self-confident CEO of a budding investigative empire. Add his impressively lazy business partner, a very large polar bear named Total. Of course, his plan does not include the four-foot-tall female whose name shall not be uttered. And it doesn’t include Rollo Tookus, who is so obsessed with getting into "Stanfurd" that he can't carry out a no-brain spy mission. Or Molly Moskins, who smells like a tangerine and is crazy about Timmy, making her his obvious (and only) prime suspect.
