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