Stephan Pastis To Publish Second Timmy Failure Book

Author and artist Stephan Pastis has signed a deal with Candlewick Press for the second installment of his bestselling Timmy Failure middle grade series.

Timmy Failure: Now Look What You’ve Done will come out on February 25, 2014 with a first printing of 350,000 copies. Writers House literary agent Dan Lazar negotiated the deal. Here’s more from the release:

In this second adventure, the over-confident Timmy is certain that he alone can solve a school-wide competition to find a stolen globe. Is the competition in fact rigged, as Timmy suspects? And will the combined skills of Timmy, his business partner polar bear Total, and a new character on the scene—his eccentric Great-Aunt Colander—suffice to win Timmy the much-needed prize money?
