Product description

Meet Timmy Failure, founder of the "best" detective agency in town - Total Failure, Inc. Timmy may only be eleven, but with the help of his polar bear, Total, he already has plans for world domination. Plans that will make his mother rich and unpaid bills a thing of the past. And plans that will defeat Corrina Corrina, "The One Whose Name Shall Not Be Uttered". But she's not going away. Riotously funny, Timmy Failure is sure to have readers in stitches.

Review quote

Timmy Failure is a winner!--Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy KidPastis 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...--Publishers Weekly...Readers should be simultaneously amused and touched by this quirky antihero.--BooklistThe Pearls Before Swine cartoonist's frequent black-and-white illustrations help to cast Timmy's adventure in an appropriately ironic light. Timmy... has greatness in him. Just like all of us.--Kirkus ReviewsPastis 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
