It's the End When I Say It's the End
by Pastis, Stephan

The creator of the acclaimed comic strip, Pearls Before Swine, presents a latest laugh-out-loud entry in the best-selling series that began with Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made.

Stephan Pastis is the creator of the New York Times bestsellers Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made and Timmy Failure: Now Look What You’ve Done, as well as Pearls Before Swine, an acclaimed comic strip that appears in more than seven hundred newspapers. He lives in northern California.

What would a film of Timmy Failure's life look like? Greatness! Great detective Timmy Failure's possibly imaginary business partner and polar bear, Total, is missing his polar-bear brother. Timmy would like to help him, but it would disrupt his detecting business—and then there is a solar eclipse at a crucial moment. Taking it as a sign from the gods, Timmy retires from detecting to help Total. Before the polar-bear hunt can progress very far, Timmy's teacher assigns the class a movie project, and Timmy must write the script. He knows the greatest story never told: his life from birth to detective greatness. Unfortunately, new student Tom John John is to direct it. Now Timmy must deal with his perpetually absent father's reappearance in town (and his patent refusal to be an international spy), the disappearance of the greatest script ever written, Tom John John's pretentious frippery, a despondent polar bear, and a host of regular hangers-on (whom anyone else would call friends). Pastis caps his offbeat, frequently absurd, and oft-times sedately madcap series with a satisfying closer. Timmy narrates his tale of greatness in his customary deadpan; Pastis' line drawings often supply wry punchlines and depict an all-white cast. Fans will feel fulfilled.
