SpongeBob SquarePants Soccer Star!/Estrella De Futbol Review (Random House)

What It Is

SpongeBob SquarePants Soccer Star/Estrella de Futbol is a 24-page bilingual book written by David Lewman, illustrated by Random House, and translated by Yuliana Gomez. The book features full-page illustrations and each page presents the text in English, and then translates it into Spanish.

The Krusty Crab is forming its own soccer team as a way to promote the business. Squidward is named the team's captain and SpongeBob and Patrick are ready for try-outs. Having no experience, Patrick turns out to be a star player and SpongeBob rallies his other Bikini Bottom amigos to join the team. When the day of their first game arrives, everyone gets a bit nervous when they see their competition-Plankton and his crew. But the power of teamwork leads them to a victory.
