Review: Now Look What You've Done (Timmy Failure #2)

Self-confident, bumbling and always triumphant despite the chaos he creates, Timmy Failure is irritatingly adorable. When you realise that his business partner really is a semi-hibernating polar bear, the stage is set for an out-of-ordinary tale.

Timmy spends a lot of time considering his own genius without bothering to actually think very much. Convinced he is the world’s best detective, Timmy sits back and waits for the answers to find him.

With pages shared between text and cartoon-style illustrations, there’s rarely an opening that won’t have you smiling. One innocent bystander after another feels the unfortunate fallout of Timmy’s act-first-and-consider-the-consequences-later capers. Slap-stick humour shares space with more intellectual quips offering something for all ages.

The question is: who gets to read it first? Timmy Failure, despite his best efforts to achieve the contrary, is a total winner.
