Justin wants a big pet! Can Olive and Squidgy help him care for Tiny… the elephant? Official book adaptation from the popular animated TV show.
Justin wants a pet — the bigger the better! He and his pal Squidgy let their imaginations roam and soon they meet their friend Olive in India. A royal pet keeper, Olive presents “Rajah” Justin his new pet, Tiny the elephant!
Together with his friends, Justin learns how to play with, feed, and clean up after Tiny by following the instructions in Olive's book Very Large Book of Pets. But Justin discovers the daily cycle has just begun and that this is a big job! Maybe taking care of a pet isn't so easy after all?
Kids and parents appreciate how the Justin Time TV series highlights the importance of creativity. Teachers and librarians like how Justin travels around the world and into different eras to learn about history, social interaction, and life lessons. Foreign cultures inspire co-creator Brandon James Scott to stoke kids’ imaginations to broaden their horizons and learn about new animals, customs, and places. Scott illustrated all new original art for this book adaptation.
