This review is from: Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made (Hardcover)
As a big fan of Wimpy Kid, I was keen to give Timmy Failure a go, chiefly due to the the subtitle 'Mistakes Were Made', which really tickled me. I'm approaching my thirtieth birthday, and I'm fully aware that I am not the target audience for this book, but despite this, I'm pretty sure this is one of the greatest books ever! It made me laugh like a drain. Timmy himself is a wonderful character. He is pompous, stupid and incredibly delusional, but innocent and adorable in his own little way. The mix of snarky narration and crude illustrations (commonly the punchlines are in the pictures) make it ideal for the reluctant reader, whether they're nine or twenty-nine!
