Description-

  • From the New York Times best-selling creator of Timmy Failure comes a third adventure about the comically overconfident sleuth.

    His name is Failure. Timmy Failure. And his detective agency is on the verge of global domination. Global riches. Global fame. And yet the gods keep throwing him curveballs: for starters, academic probation. The coveted Miracle Report is the key to everything, including a good grade. It's dirty business. It's best you know nothing. But one thing is for sure: Timmy Failure will be triumphant again!

About the Author-

  • Stephan Pastis is the creator of Pearls Before Swine, an acclaimed comic strip that appears in more than six hundred US newspapers and boasts a devoted following. His 2011 compilation Larry in Wonderland debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list for paperback graphic novels. Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made was his first book for young readers, and it was followed by three more Timmy Failure books He lives in northern California.

    Stephan Pastis took an unusual route to becoming a number-one best-selling comics creator: he went to law school. It's not that he didn't want to become a cartoonist—as a child growing up in the Los Angeles suburb of San Marino, he spent many happy hours off by himself drawing (when he wasn't collecting baseball cards). He was routinely called on to create cartoons for his school newspapers. But by the time he graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in political science, Pastis—a completely self-taught artist—felt it unlikely that his cartoons would ever be syndicated.
    So he found himself sitting in class at UCLA Law School, hopelessly bored, sketching the character Rat (who would later become a mainstay of all his future comic strips). Creative inspiration followed him through graduation in 1993 to his first law firm job in San Francisco, where by 1996 he finally started submitting his comics to syndicates. Persisting through an initial spate of rejections, Stephan Pastis created his signature strip, Pearls Before Swine, in 1997 and signed on with United Media in 1999. Pearls was off and running, making appearances on the web, in newspapers, and in many best-selling books.

    Gr 3-7-Timmy Failure is back along with his business partner, Total, a 1,500 pound polar bear; the tangerine scented "criminal mastermind" Molly Moskins; his best friend, Rollo Toukas; and his arch nemesis Corrina, Corrina. When readers catch up with Timmy this time around, he has been placed on academic probation and the one thing that can save him is the infamous Miracle Report. A report of legend, for it is the only time an assignment has received an "A +++++." Timmy gets paired with the Beast (aka Corrina, Corrina) as his report partner, his mother is dating his little league coach, an evil cat and dog duo are staying in his apartment, and to top it all off, the Scum Bolo Chihuahua that eats children lives in the redwood forest where Timmy has to go for a field trip. Pastis's lovely balance of quirky cartooning and quick-moving text makes this an enjoyable, laugh-out-loud read. Highly recommended for kids who love Bill Watterson's "Calvin and Hobbes," Jeff Kinney's "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," Lincoln Peirce's "Big Nate" Rachel Renee Russell's or "Dork Diaries." This book and the entire series are a perfect go-to for reluctant readers.-Krishna Grady, Darien Library, CT

    This is a book about very nice people. None of them is Timmy Failure. The main character in a children's book is often the kindest, most heroic person in the story, but not here. Timmy spends his time in class drawing insulting baseball cards with pictures of his classmates. Molly Moskins has a crush on Timmy. Her baseball card says, "Characteristics: Mismatched pupils. Smells like tangerine." His best friend's card says, "Boring." In spite of that, his friends go out of their way to help him, and a good-natured teacher even asks if Timmy will draw him on a baseball card. (His card has only one word on the back: "Nosy.") Some readers will lose patience with Timmy, and they may even wonder if the book would be better with someone else as the main character. But there are several moments where Timmy is unironically sweet. Anyone familiar with the previous books in the series may be surprised at the genuine sentiment in a few scenes. There are actual hugs, and there's a deeply touching conversation with a very unlikely person. (Her baseball card says, "Occupation: Evil.") Timmy Failure is a classic antihero: Some readers will be drawn to the book because of him; others will be drawn to it in spite of him. (Comic mystery. 8-12)

    Grades 4-7 In this third story about the world's greatest detective (who really isn't), Timmy Failure is allowed back to school on academic probation, and he and his mother (and polar bear Total) have moved again now that she has a new job. School continues to be a thorn in Timmy's side, as it gets in the way of his plans for global domination of the detective market. A make-or-break science project, which creates stress and unhealthy competition between his classmates, provides Timmy with the opportunity to establish his credentials once and for allor crash and burn more than he has ever crashed and burned before. Pastis' supporting cast of characters are really beginning to emerge from the grip of Timmy's perspective, and in several cases, they have become effective narrative foils for him, rather than speechless bystanders to his quirkiness. While he is not yet ready for prime time, there are signs that, with the support of people who find him lovable in spite of himself, Timmy Failure will not live up to his name. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Timmy Failure is anything but a failure on the best-seller list. Select author appearances, a book trailer, a teacher's guide, and more should extend this kid's success streak.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2014, American Library Association.)
