Timmy Failure owns the greatest detective agency in town, the state, and maybe even the nation. He solves high profile cases at a rate of $4/day plus expenses. With his trusty business partner, a polar bear named Total, he sets out to change the world one stolen Halloween candy basket at a time. He must overcome his mother, school, idiot study partners, and nefarious competition before his business can become the multi-billion dollar, world-famous detective agency he knows is his destiny.
This is a fun book that is absolutely squeaky clean. It's full of funny and oddball moments. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I think kids will love it. I'm certainly recommending it to my 8-year-old niece!
