Animation expert and historian Jerry Beck takes everyone s favorite sponge as seriously as possible, and that s what makes "The SpongeBob SquarePants Experience" such a great book. Sure, there are fun things for the kids in there, but it s the history and storytelling about the making of one of this generation s great cartoons that makes it a must-buy. Parade.com
