THE SPONGEBOB MOVIE: SPONGE ON THE RUN comes to theatres May 22, 2020.

Part origin story, part rescue mission, and part buddy road trip, the all new feature-length movie follows SpongeBob, Patrick, and the entire Bikini Bottom crew as they embark on a journey that spans from childhood to an adventure to save their friend, Gary the Snail. Boys and girls will thrill to this novelization that features eight pages of images based on the film.

SpongeBob followed the sound, which led him past the edge of the camp. Finally, he spotted a young pink sea star sitting slumped on a rock all by himself, crying.

SpongeBob put on his friendliest face and walked up to the sea star. “Hi. My name is—”

But before he could say it, the sea star cried louder. “Waaaaahhh!”

SpongeBob tried again. “Hi. My name—”

“WAAAAAAH!” the sea star wailed, even louder. Tears shot out of his eyes so forcefully, they knocked SpongeBob over. He got up and approached the young sea star once again.

“Hello, my name is SpongeBob. What’s your name?”

“I’m Pa . . . Pa . . . Pa . . . trick,” the sea star managed to say between sobs. Then he went back into full crying mode. “BWAAAAAAAAAH!”

“Why are you crying, Pa-pa-pa-trick?” SpongeBob asked.

“I’m . . . homesick!” Patrick explained, sobbing and wailing, tears streaming down his face and puddling around his feet.

SpongeBob felt sorry for Patrick. No wonder he’d been crying so much!

“Well, that’s a pretty good reason,” SpongeBob admitted. “Must be pretty hard when you don’t know anybody, huh?”

“Yeah,” Patrick agreed. He sobbed. “Pretty hard.” He sobbed again.

SpongeBob sat on the rock next to Patrick. “Maybe all you need is a friend.”

“WAAAAAH! I don’t have any friends!” Patrick bawled.

SpongeBob grinned. “Well, you’ve got one now!”

“Really?” Patrick asked, sniffling and wiping the tears from his eyes. He looked around. “Who is it?”

“It’s me!” SpongeBob said.

“Do you mean it?” Patrick asked, amazed that someone who had just met him, and had never seen him do anything but cry, was willing to be his friend.

“Of course!” SpongeBob said. “Things go better with friends! Two are better than one!”

From then on, SpongeBob and Patrick were the best of buddies. (And Patrick explained that his name was Patrick, not Pa-pa-pa-trick.) They went everywhere together, and did all kinds of fun camp activities. . . .

Near the lake, they found some big boulders to climb on. Laughing and shouting to each other, they scrambled up to the top. From there they could see the whole camp.
