Description
Now an original film on Disney+ "An endearingly pathetic antihero with delusions of greatness. . . . Seldom has failure been so likable -- or so funny." -- The Wall Street Journal 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, and what you have is Total Failure, Inc. From the offbeat creator of Pearls Before Swine comes an endearingly bumbling hero in a hilarious caper accompanied by a whodunit twist. With perfectly paced visual humor, Stephan Pastis gets readers snorting with laughter, then slyly carries the joke a beat further--or sweetens it with an unexpected poignant moment--making this a comics-inspired and New York Times best-selling story that truly stands apart from the pack.
