Host Your Own Failure Friday Party

28th May 2019


To celebrate the brand new look for the bestselling Timmy Failure series, Walker Books is encouraging schools and libraries across the country to host their very own #FailureFriday party and we’d love our Toppsta readers to join in too!

All you need to do is click on the image below to download your epic #FailureFriday pack, perfect for budding crime solvers. The kit includes a trivia game, an observation test, fun design tasks (including drawing a disguise for Timmy and creating your own Failure Mobile) plus an exercise to write your own mystery story. Remember you’re bound to be a better detective than Timmy is!

#FailureFriday will take place every Friday in June and we hope you and your school mates get involved. 

We’ll also be sharing blog posts from a number of authors who have experienced failure and learnt to champion it, just like Timmy has.

Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made

The hilarious and ever-optimistic Timmy Failure, and his polar bear sidekick Total, create chaos as they attempt to make sense of the world in the first book in the New York Times bestselling series.

Riotously funny and perfect for fans of Wimpy Kid, Tom Gates and Barry Loser, Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made has been listed as one of 100 Children's Modern Classics by The Sunday Times and was chosen for inclusion in Tom Fletcher's second book club.

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".
