Justin wants a big pet! Justin wishes he could make the rules, just like a prince does! So Squidgy crowns Justin, and together they meet Olive in India. Now a royal pet keeper, Olive refers to her "Very Large Book of Pets" and helps Raja Justin take care of his new elephant, Tiny!

Together with his friends, Justin learns how to play with, feed, and clean up after Tiny by following the instructions in Olive's book. But Justin discovers the daily cycle has just begun. Maybe having a pet isn't so easy after all!

This series is based upon the popular animated TV show, which airs in the United States weekdays on PBS Sprout and NBC Kids on Saturdays, and on Disney Junior's Family Channel in Canada.

Each story in the Justin Time series highlights the importance of creativity, as Justin travels around the world and into different eras to learn about history, social interaction, and life lessons.

Brandon James Scott is the co-creator of Justin Time in Toronto, Ontario.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—The creator of the PBS animated show Justin Time offers another print rendition of a series episode. As in The Pancake Express (Immedium, 2012), Scott uses large-scale cartoons and slapstick to illustrate his lesson. Justin wants to own the largest possible pet, so he travels to India to adopt Tiny, a pink elephant. A lady in a sari gives him rules for pet care: elephants need playtime, lots of peanuts, to be cleaned up after, exercise, and naps, over and over. When caring for Tiny proves too challenging for Justin, he donates her to the zoo. Cartoon sound effects ("Smash!" "Whizzz!" "Snap!") festoon the text, which leans toward well-trod phrases. The companion character Squidgy, a yellow, floating blob with dangling arms, is not explained. This story, therefore, is most likely best appreciated by fans of the television show.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA

    Great for Pre-Schoolers

    My 3 yr old granddaughter is just in love with Justin Time. These two books were a great hit for her birthday. I even made a squidgy for her, and her mother made her 3 small cakes with the characters Olive, Justin and Squidgy. It encourages her reading. But I swear she knows the stories by heart!
