Stephan Pastis writes/illustrates children’s book

Pearls Before Swine creator Stephan Pastis will soon be publishing a children’s book entitled, “Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made.” The book is due out in February by Candlewick Press.

From Stephan’s blog:

It’s called “Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made.” It’s about a boy detective who can take any mystery and make it more mysterious. It comes out in February and is being published in the U.S. by Candlewick Press. It is currently set to be published in 10 other countries as well.

In theory, it’s for kids, ages 8 to 12. But personally, I think it’s for anyone. It also has around 200 drawings in it.

You’re welcome Stephan. You have done a great job with Pearls and your achievements as a cartoonist are very inspirational and infuential to hopefuls like myself!

This is a blatant rip-off of Lio! Should be interesting to see if Pastis draws from his celebrated detective days on the streets of San Franciso.
