Guru Expands Publishing Platform with New Justin Time Book
Guru Studio and its partner Immedium have recently announced the release of a new Justin Time book titiled “The Big Pet Story,” marking the franchise’s second foray into the print world. The book will be distributed by Immedium through Barns & Noble (US), Chapters Indigo (Canada), Amazon, local independent bookstores throughout North America, and on their own website. The California-based publishers released the first title “The Pancake Express” in October 2012.
The Big Pet Story is based on the TV series’ pilot episode, and focuses on Justin as he imagines how fun it would be to have a pet, with his excitement over the possibility of getting a new pet transporting him to India, where he becomes the proud new owner of an oddly large Pink elephant. He and friends Olive and Squidgy soon discover that having a pet may be fun, but it also involves a whole lot of peanuts, exercise and good old fashioned work!
“Fans of these books love to discover the stories played out in the animated episodes. And fans of the show are really enjoying seeing their favourite stories reflected in these beautiful books,” says Guru Studio President Frank Falcone.
