List of books

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Essential Guide is an informational book about the SpongeBob SquarePants animated series. It includes maps, character descriptions, and information on places in Bikini Bottom. It was published in 2005.


A crazy, colorful guide to SpongeBob and his friends, this Essential Guide features character spreads, newly commissioned cutaway artworks, and lots of fun facts about the world of everyone's favorite absorbent TV star.


  • Some parts of the book seems to be outdated due to it being published back in 2005.


  • There are many errors on where places are located on the map.
  • On the map, The Krusty Krab is misspelled as "The Krutsy Krab."
  • In the book, there's a map clearly showing that there is grass growing in Jellyfish Fields, SpongeBob's grandma's house, Mrs. Puff's house and Sandy's treedome. However, on page 22, "Sandys treedome", it says that Sandy's treedome was the only place under the sea were you'd find grass growing.
