Reviewed by Alex Ndirangu for Readers' Favorite

Disgusting Justin written by Justin Frank and illustrated by Lesley Vamos is an engaging, fun-packed children's picture book. Justin is a cheeky youngster who is always up to mischief and running wild. He does hilarious tricks and performs epic fails intended to make his mates chortle. But Justin wants to see them rolling hysterically on the ground. Not making them laugh is one of Justin's greatest fears. When guzzling his milkshake with lots of noisy slurps and burps, and pretending to trip isn't enough, he fakes bumping into a post to hear them giggle. It is like music to his ears whenever they laugh at his legendary fails. Every day he has to take it up a notch and be his wildest yet. 

Disgusting Justin is an easy-to-read, amusing story that will brighten your day with a good laugh. It will be even more fun if you read it aloud to youngsters aged three and up. It draws you in from the first page. Justin Frank immerses you in the setting through well-crafted, intriguing word choices, an engaging lyrical tone that rings throughout the book, and a fun main character. Justin might be stubborn sometimes, but he won't fail to make you laugh. The illustrations make his escapades at making his friends laugh even funnier. Lesley Vamos is excellent at ensuring that this story is a feast for the eyes. Throughout this adventure, there are several morals and hidden values. They all seek to encourage us to be our authentic selves, whether in our relationships or when performing tasks. The fact that Justin's new adventure is just beginning at the end of this story means we can look forward to having more fun with him in the future.
