Timmy Failure: The Book You're Not Supposed to Have

By Stephan Pastis
Illustrated by Stephan Pastis

Timmy Failure returns once more in the fifth book in the New York Times bestselling series.

Fans of Wimpy Kid and Tom Gates will love the hilarious fifth instalment from Timmy Failure, aka the world's greatest detective. The only thing you need to know about Timmy's latest memoir is that it was never meant for publication. Timmy's detective log was stolen, and if this book gets out, Timmy will be grounded for life. Or maybe even longer. Because while Timmy was meant to be focusing on schoolwork, he was continuing his detective work in a garden shed. You don't need the details. Just know this: there's a Merry, a Larry, a missing tooth and a disappearing friend. But don't tell Timmy's mother!

  • Fifth book in the New York Times bestselling series. The first book, Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made, was a Book Trust Best Book Awards winner and listed as one of 100 Children's Modern Classics by The Sunday Times.
  • "If you like Tom Gates or Wimpy Kid, the Timmy Failure books are for you!" Alexander, aged 10, Lovereading4kids.co.uk
  • The series has spent a combined 37 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, and rights have been sold in 32 countries, with 1.4 million copies in print worldwide.
