Meet "detective" Timmy Failure, star of the kids comedy of the year. Created by "New York Times" best-selling cartoonist Stephan Pastis. Take Timmy Failure the clueless, comically self-confident CEO of the best detective agency in town, perhaps even the nation. Add his impressively lazy business partner, a very large polar bear named Total. Throw in the Failuremobile Timmy s mom s Segway and what you have is Total Failure, Inc., a global enterprise destined to make Timmy so rich his mother won t have to stress out about the bills anymore. Of course, Timmy s plan does not include the four-foot-tall female whose name shall not be uttered. And it doesn t include Rollo Tookus, who is so obsessed with getting into "Stanfurd" that he can t carry out a no-brainer spy mission. From the offbeat creator of" Pearls Before Swine" comes an endearingly bumbling hero in a caper whose peerless hilarity is accompanied by a whodunit twist. With perfectly paced visual humor, Stephan Pastis gets you snorting with laughter, then slyly carries the joke a beat further or sweetens it with an unexpected poignant moment making this a comics-inspired story (the first in a new series) that truly stands apart from the pack."

Review quote

Timmy Failure is a winner! --Jeff Kinney, Diary of a Wimpy Kid ...readers should be simultaneously amused and touched by this quirky antihero. --Booklist Pastis has assembled an eccentric and funny cast (running gags revolve around Total's voracious appetite and a librarian who looks like one of the Hells Angels), yet there are also touching interactions to be found, particularly between Timmy and his mother. --Publishers Weekly Pastis crafts a great story starring an unforgettable protagonist whose unorthodox approach to detective work (and world domination) will have readers in stitches. For Timmy Failure, success is the only option! --Lincoln Peirce, creator of the Big Nate series
