Giveaway #495 : Win a trio of Timmy Failure books - closed - winner Sheena Read


"Meet Timmy Failure, founder of the "best" detective agency in town - Total Failure, Inc. With the help of his polar bear, Total, the clueless, comically self-confident Timmy already has plans for world domination. Plans that will make his mother rich and unpaid bills a thing of the past. And plans that will defeat Corrina Corrina, "The One Whose Name Shall Not Be Uttered". But she's not going away. Riotously funny, Timmy Failure is sure to have readers in stitches."


I shared my review of the first two Timmy Failure books earlier in the week - we loved the silliness of the situations he gets himself into, his total failure to see the things that are staring him in the face and the oodles of illustrations that break up the text, making it the perfect series for beginner or reluctant readers.



The publishers have kindly offered to send a set of the first three Timmy Failure books to one lucky Madhouse Family Reviews reader. Fill in your entries in the Rafflecopter widget below.
