Overview

Want to aspire to greatness? Check out this edition of Timmy Failure’s first adventure—featuring the bonus section “How to Draw Timmy and Total.”

He may be clueless, but the comically self-confident Timmy Failure is CEO of the best detective agency in town, perhaps even the nation. Additional 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).

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Timmy Failure is a winner!
—Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid

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...
—Publishers Weekly

…Readers should be simultaneously amused and touched by this quirky antihero.
—Booklist

The 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 Reviews

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
