Justin wants a pet! So he and his pal Squidgy wonder which big pet would be best? Soon they meet their friend Olive in India, where Justin is now a prince or "Raja". Now a royal pet keeper, Olive 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!
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.

"This is a pleasant story with entertaining illustrations that capture the animated style and the sense of India."
- Puget Sound Council for Reviewing Children's Literature/Media
"My daughter recommends this book for any child who loves animals, especially elephants. The pink elephant is large and cute; the illustration catches your attention quickly. The vibrant illustrations complement the story line perfectly. The large font is nicely placed on the pages with the right amount of words per page. I like the sound effects included in the story, it brings the characters to life."

"This is a good book to address the desire almost every child has for a pet. Through his bright illustrations, Scott successfully shows how much work a pet can be. While it may not deter your child from begging for a new animal, it is a good way to prepare him for the work that is involved, especially if the animal is going to be 'his responsibility.'"

"The animation is wonderful, almost like one of Mary Poppins' chalk paintings coming to life, and perfectly suited to this imaginative tale. The composition of the story is fun... My son loves this book"
