Timmy Failure – Mistakes Were Made

Timmy Failure Books Family Clan Blog

My Name is Failure. Timmy Failure. I am the founder, president, and CEO of the best detective agency in town, probably the world. The book you are holding is a historical record of my life as a detective. It has been rigorously fact-checked. All the drawings in here are by me. I tried to get my business partner to do the illustrations, but they were not good (as his business partner is a dog).

Although I am sure my children would really enjoy this book, as a mam, I felt like Timmy’s negative view of his mother and his friends was not what I want my kids to identify with at this age. It might work better as a read-aloud, so be ready to address any issues as you read about them.

This book can be purchased from Amazon.

Timmy Failure – Sanitized For Your Protection
Timmy Failure Books Family Clan Blog

‘I am Timmy Failure, The worlds greatest detective and I am tapped on a cross-country caravan-to-nowhere with the world’s most notorious criminal. But the truth of how I got here isn’t important. Because in a world that’s gone mad, when good’s become bad, the truth must be sanitized for your protection.

We like how the stories reads directly as if Timmy is explaining his life to you. There are plenty of pictures throughout the books, keeping younger readers occupied as the story goes on and with the pictures explaining Timmy’s story as he goes.
We found the books to be an excellent read and different to the normal stories we have read, due to the way it is read to you.

I found these books a little to old for Jake and Grace to read and understand so I have put them away until they are a bit older. I would say they are aimed at children aged 8/9+

This book can be purchased from Amazon.
