Timmy Failure: Now Look What You’ve Done, by Stephan Pastis
“Puns, plays-on-words, and clever comedic timing will result in laugh-out-loud moments.” —School Library Journal
The clueless, comically self-confident detective Timmy Failure is about to crack the biggest case of his generation: a school competition to find a stolen globe.
But someone is clearly trying to game the system. Hoodwink. Con. Defraud.
Timmy, with the dubious help of his lazy polar bear sidekick, Total, must avenge the shenanigans, defeat the injustice—and get an entry form in on time.
Pastis has a knack for comic timing, and the interplay between cartoon, text, and the absurdities of the story should continue to attract readers who wish they could shake their fists at the world with such inept panache. —Booklist
