MY SUMMARY (without the ending): Justice has a big mouth literally and figuratively. His mouth is quite large and he talks too much. He is also quite mischievous and inquisitive. Justice goes down the street to buy a pint of milk for his mother and ends up disappearing after meeting a strangely fascinating man, Mr. Cringe. Justice’s experiences with, and after Mr.Cringe make this both magical and realistic and make for a good read. This will make a great musical play for kids to try at home and in school. It comes with music sheets too!

THUMBS UP AND DOWN

UP: It is a musical play and I enjoyed imagining a group of child actors doing justice to the play. Mr. Cringe the evil/mad scientist was another highlight of this book for me.

DOWN: Well, it may be a weeeeeee bit boring. So how can a book be boring and interesting at the same time? I really don’t know ☺
