James M. Lyman’s “Timothy McMaister” was one of the books exhibited at the 2023 Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, which was held at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, on April 22-23, 2023. The book display was made possible by the self-publishing and book marketing company, ReadersMagnet.

“Timothy McMaister” follows the titular character who wastes time by playing phone games, meme scrolling, and video-watching. Timmy’s habit worsens when it creates a domino effect: his siblings become time-wasters like their brothers. So, their parents plan to redirect their kids’ habits and correct everything on their terms.

The children’s picture book is directed at young readers and talks about wasting time. It shows how wasting time affects other people’s activities and negatively affects their lives. In this story, Timmy’s parents try to map out a plan that should let Timmy deal with this behavior and not spend too much time on things that are not important.

The young readers will be able to see everything that’s happening in the book as the story is fully illustrated by BuSizwe Diamini. The captivating illustrations make the young readers engage more as they would easily understand what’s happening in the present tense. With the story and the illustrations, parents can have a great bedtime story for their kids, and at the same time this will help them start a conversation with their kids!

The author also provides an important lesson about using time properly as a sign of respecting other people’s time and not wasting any chance.

“Timothy McMaister” by James M. Lyman is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
