The movie tie-in edition of the award-winning and hugely popular adventures of Timmy Failure

Wimpy Kid fans will love this boy-diary with a difference. Saddled with the name Timmy Failure, our narrator has clearly been dealt a tough hand. Luckily, he has a perky temperament and is not easily deflected from his ambitions. Timmy founds Total Failure Inc, the best detective agency in town. Or is it??? Young readers will enjoy spotting Timmy’s rookie errors which are wittily conveyed in both the words and the engaging illustrations.
