Now Timmy s legion of fans are invited to set off on their own path to mastery with the help from Stephan Pastis. Added material includes step-by-step instructions on how to draw Timmy and his impressively lazy business partner, the polar bear Total including a trick to making them both look a "tiny "bit nuts (hint: the secret is in the eyes).
