The pages combine illustrations, interviews, quotes, concepts, and fun inserts. The artwork ranges from sketch ideas to full color animation. These are the background for the in depth interviews with the cast and crew.
Then there are the inserts. These are fantastic. There is "My Book of Evil Plans" by Plankton, a bumper sticker from Mrs. Puff's Boating school, Squidward’s name tag, and a snail care guide. I also found a comic book, Patrick Star’s ID , some stickers, and even (shhhh.... don't tell Plankton!!!) an envelope that says it contains the TOP SECRET Krabby Patty recipe!!!! There are many more little items throughout the book, but I will save a few for you to discover on your own.
The book covers material from the first nine SpongeBob seasons. It is funny, and visual, but also has a lot of facts - so my kids were instantly drawn to it. I have to admit, I am enjoying it too!
If you have a SpongeBob fan on your list, this could be the perfect way to scratch another name of the list.
