At Books in Print we love to meet authors and illustrators. We feel so lucky to meet these interesting and creative people - and when the author is an international superstar we feel even luckier. We were thrilled beyond words to recently meet American novelist/cartoonist Stephan Pastis, author of one of our favourite children's series, Timmy Failure.

“For me as a kid, I liked to laugh. And I’m hoping this book does that for both kids and their parents. I just really want to give them a story that has something humorous in every chapter.”

Stephan told us that if a storyline he's working on makes him laugh heartily, it's in, if not... it's out! This is an author seriously in touch with his inner child, and kids seriously love his work. Books in Print, along with Walker Books, took Stephan along to a packed, captive audience at Mount Waverley Primary School recently - he was an huge success.

Stephan also very kindly dropped in to Books in Print and signed some copies of Timmy Failure (Books 1 & 2) for the shop. Stephan's signature incorporates a unique cartoon of a Timmy Failure character in each book he's signed. Stocks are limited, so get in quick!
