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.
It's very funny
In case you didn't notice, the cat stole Timmy's pants
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.
I Love This Series
