Books giveaway: Timmy Failure series
This giveaway is sponsored by Walker Books
If you’re looking for books guaranteed to tickle your 8 – 11-year-old’s funny bone, we’ve got a great series for you.
Hapless detective duo Timmy Failure and Total (his pet polar bear and business partner) are Total Failure, Inc. a detective agency destined for global greatness – or so Timmy likes to think. In their latest adventure, Sanitized for Your Protection, shenanigans abound as Timmy Failure finds himself on a road trip with none other than notorious criminal Molly Moskins. But Timmy has a case to solve, and nothing can stand in his way.
"I found my eight-year-old daughter hiding under the covers reading it at 11pm! I could 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!" – jowie
"My son loved reading this, especially with all the little drawings. 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." – ja1972
