Being familiar with Stephan Pastis's work in comics, I was curious what his children's books would be like. No surprise, there is a lot of the same style of dry humor and lovingly labored puns. Timmy, the main character (duh, I know), is a total pain in the neck to everyone around him, but you can't help but enjoy his melodramatic flailing and unshakable confidence (and feel sorry for his Mom).

I thought this book was quite funny, and kids will see that they are doing *just fine* in life skills, compared to Timmy. In this book, he teams up with Emilio Empanada, a sweet, sincere kid who has some major anxieties. By the end, Timmy and Emilio have learned from each other, and I noticed that this book has emotional sincerity that doesn't blunt the impact of the ridiculous humor.

Another fantastic entry into the Timmy Failure series - Timmy remains the world's "greatest" detective, stuck in Florida while his mum and Doorman Dive have a honeymoon. It's the usual amount of shenanigans, accompanied by the silly illustrations. I can't wait for the next one.
