"Brilliant and funny…"
This is such a brilliant book that is easy to read and follow. My daughter is too young to read this now but it's definitely a keeper until she is old enough to read about wacky Timmy and his even wackier polar bear!Read moreLess
"Funniest book I've ever read!…"
The review below has been written by my 10 year old boy:
"Timmy Failure is the funniest book I've ever read because of the extra funny parts.
My favourite character is Flo because he is a librarian who looks like a boxer!
My favourite part is when Timmy moves house because Total Failure Inc shuts down."Read moreLess
"funny and very easy to read…"
My son loved reading this especially with all the little drawings about. The book had funny elements throughout which made him NOT want to put the book down. It has inspired him to try and set-up his own detective agency although he has no clients at present he is hopeful.
Great bookRead moreLess
"Intriguing to start with, but......…"
It got quite boring in the end. There were some black pages with white writing: they were always cool, because they were diary entries.but I never finished the book. Miss N. age 9Read moreLess
"She loved it…"
Review by Megan, aged 9 who received a free copy from mumsnet:
Timmy Failure is a fantastic book. I love it because it is funny and enjoyable. My favourite character is Total the polar bear because he is lazy and likes eating.
I think this book is suitable for 8-10 year olds because the topic is suitable and it's not too tricky to read. My favourite part is where Timmy drives the car down the hill and crashes into a building. This is because I think it is courageous of him but also funny at the same time.
I think I would like to teas more books by this author and give it five stars.Read moreLess
"Fabulously Fun Detective story…"
Got this book in recent giveaway and persuaded my Son aged 10 to read the book he thought it was very funny made him laugh out loud he loved the hilarious illustrations and thought the style was similar to Wimpy Kid books but much funnier. Great to see him enjoying reading again hard to find books he will actually finish. Timmy Failure a brilliant character and his friend Rollo. We are both looking forward to book two will be a successful series for readers aged 8 to 11. Thanks Mumsnet & Walker for sending us a copyRead moreLess
"My son is actually reading!!!…"
We got this book as part of a Mumsnet giveaway and I gave it my 11 year old son to read with strict instructions that Mumsnet have said he has to read it and review it - I might have laid it on a bit thick!!! Didn't need to though as he is actually reading it without arguing AND without being asked!! He tells me it is funny and a bit in the style of wimpy kid. Mr Gove, please take note - our kids like to be entertained when they read and not have the joy sucked out of them by being forced to read books that have no bearing today!!Read moreLess
Timmy Failure 'Mistakes were made'. I got this book in a mums net giveaway. I found my eight year old daughter hiding under the covers reading it at 11pm!!! I can hear her giggling. She loves the cartoon illustrations and Timmy's pet polar bear Total. She finished the book in 3 nights and has asked for more Timmy Failure. My husband is now reading it!Read moreLess
