Synopsis

"It is Halloween, and SpongeBob is determined to scare everyone this year. All he has to do is dress up like the Flying Dutchman, but SpongeBob does not realize just how scary he can look. Join the gang from Bikini Bottom in this spooky Halloween tale!"

Description

The cover shows a scared SpongeBob in his ghost costume while being tied up on a rope by Patrick in the Krusty Krab. Squidward, Mr. Krabs, and Sandy are shown in the background laughing.

The reprint cover instead shows the Flying Dutchman scaring SpongeBob with his hands in the air.

Trivia

  • Squidward and Pearl's costumes were changed from the episode this book is based on. Pearl is dressed as a witch instead of the Bride of Frankenstein. Squidward is seen dressed as a clown and not as the Flying Dutchman.
  • The Flying Dutchman's speech to SpongeBob is changed. Instead of just mentioning spiders and himself as scary things, he says "No! Spiders are scary! Witches are scary! I am scary!"
  • This book was released on Hal Douglas' 79th birthday.
