Some surprising news sends Timmy Failure on a hilarious caper as the New York Times best-selling series continues.

Behold! You are all about to be witnesses to greatness.

In this fourth volume of Timmy Failure’s memoirs, Timmy is forced to hit the road in a cross-country trip that includes Timmy’s mom, Total the polar bear, Doorman Dave, and smells-like-a-tangerine criminal mastermind Molly Moskins. It’s a world gone mad, where good becomes bad, and Timmy Failure is a condemned man.

Someone call the authorities. . . .

Praise For Timmy Failure: Sanitized for Your Protection

Cartoonist Pastis brings his intelligent yet clueless, arrogantly overconfident detective back for a fourth nonsensical (and nonexistent) case...Nevertheless, for fans of the bestselling series, this one's more of the same. Abundantly illustrated fun for readers too intelligent for the Wimpy Kid.
—Kirkus Reviews

At times laugh-out-loud funny, then disarmingly sweet, Timmy’s brand of failure continues to succeed with style.
