Timmy Failure
Mistakes Were Made

author/illustrator: Stephan Pastis

series name:
Timmy Failure

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 -- Timmyís momís Segway -- and what you have is Total Failure, Inc., a global enterprise destined to make Timmy so rich his mother wonít have to stress out about the bills anymore. Of course, Timmyís plan does not include the four-foot-tall female whose name shall not be uttered. And it doesnít include Rollo Tookus, who is so obsessed with getting into "Stanfurd" that he canít 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.

Meet "detective" Timmy Failure, star of the kidsí comedy of the year. Created by New York Times best-selling cartoonist Stephan Pastis.
