Timmy Failure books by Stephan Pastis

This auction is for the following TWO books.

1. Mistakes Were Made (hardcover, as new)
Take eleven-year-old Timmy Failure – the clueless, comically self-confident CEO of the best detective agency in town, perhaps even the nation. Add his impressively lazy business partner, a very large polar bear named Total. Throw in the Failuremobile – Timmy's mom's S­egway – and what you have is Total Failure, Inc., a global enterprise destined to make Timmy so rich his mother won't have to stress out about the bills anymore. Of course, Timmy's plan does not include the four-foot-tall female whose name shall not be uttered. And it doesn't include Rollo Tookus, who is so obsessed with getting into “Stanfurd” that he can't carry out a no-brainer spy mission. With perfectly paced visual humour, Stephan Pastis gets you snorting with laughter, then slyly carries the joke a beat further – or sweetens it with an unexpected poignant moment – making this a comics-inspired story (the first in a new series) that truly stands apart from the pack.

2. Now Look What You've Done (paperback, near-new)
"When you lose hope, find it." - Timmy Failure. He's about to crack the biggest case of his generation: a school competition to find a stolen globe. It's his ticket to bringing home a $500 prize, which is guaranteed to set him up for life. But someone is clearly trying to game the system. Hoodwink. Con. Defraud. So it's up to Timmy Failure, with the dubious help of Total, his lazy polar-bear partner, and his unlikely new ally, eccentric Great Aunt Colander, to find a way to avenge these shenanigans. Defeat this injustice. If he can only get his entry form in on time.

Good for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Both bought from new. Comes from a clean, pet-free, smoke-free home.
