Immedium, Inc. proudly announces the publication of the children's picture book Justin Time: The Pancake Express. Created by the professional animator Brandon Scott, this colorful adventure is perfect for all train lovers! This debut book series is based on episodes from a new animated television show, which debuted on PBS Sprout in the USA in April 2012, NBC Kids on Saturday mornings in July 2012, and on Disney Junior's Family Channel in Canada starting in September 2012.
All aboard! Justin and his pal Squidgy imagine themselves behind the wheel of a classic steam train, delivering important cargo for their friend Olive. But they discover it's not easy getting through the Canadian wilderness. Will their barrel of maple syrup make it to Flap Jack Falls in time for the Pancake Festival? Never give up!
History and travel inspire creator Brandon Scott to stoke kids' imaginations. "I love the idea of seeing all these cultures and places and, as a preschool show, exposing little kids to some of this exciting stuff like different countries and different cultures, giving them a taste for it," said Scott. "It could be very cool and important. Maybe later when they're learning about it in school they'll remember seeing it in an episode of Justin Time."
Produced by Guru Studio, the Justin Time animated TV series airs on Disney Junior channels in Australia, New Zealand, Germany and Italy. The series will also air on Discovery Kids Latin America, Discovery Familia in the U.S., Finland's YLE, Israel's Hop!, and in South Korea.
