The Boss Baby Family Business Junior Novelization

Adapted by Stacia Deutsch

Everyone’s favorite baby executive returns to screens this summer in DreamWorks Boss Baby 2: Family Business!

There’s a new boss baby in the family in this hilarious storybook about grown-up Tim and Ted re-connecting with their inner children. This novelization comes with an eight page, full-color glossy insert of images from the film.

Tim and his “boss baby” little brother, Ted, are now adults who have drifted apart. Tim is married and has two little girls, Tabitha and baby Tina. And, as it turns out, Tina is a “boss baby!”

She’s a top secret agent working for Baby Corp. and discovers an evil plot against parents at Tabitha’s school. Stopping the nefarious plan will require reinforcements. Fortunately, she has a formula that turns adults back into children (and babies!).

Can Tina convince her dad and Uncle Ted to help her save all the parents in the world? This sweet and hilarious movie reunites the Templeton brothers as they re-evaluate the meaning of family and discover what truly matters.

Chapter One CHAPTER ONE
Tim had an incredible imagination. He closed his eyes, and suddenly it was as if his family was at the beach. It was a beautiful day, but then—a volcano erupted. It was exciting. It was terrifying. Hot lava spewed everywhere. Tim leaped into action, quickly rescuing Carol and Tina by moving them to safety. Then he went back to save Tabitha.

“Stay calm!” he told his daughter.

Tim was an expert in imaginary volcanos.

He turned his beach chair into a surfboard and rode the lava toward his daughter. Tim dodged and ducked and faced the danger with courage. Finally, the lava parted, allowing Tim’s surfboard to pass safely through. Tim ground to a halt in front of his very focused, no-nonsense daughter, Tabitha. The daydream ended.

“Dad, what are you doing?!” Tabitha didn’t have time for her dad’s wild imagination today. The volcano was a school science experiment with Mentos candy and soda. When mixed together, the Mentos would fizz into a massive foam.

Tabitha looked at the mess from the project. She knew she had to clean that up.

Tim still wanted to stay in the imaginary world. “Come on, this is the candy volcano of doom! You used to love it!” Clean up could wait. He wanted to get back to their pretend adventure.

Tabitha shook her head. “I’m trying to do my homework or I’m doomed.” She gathered her stack of books and left the room.

“Oh… okay…” Tim watched Tabitha walk away. He sighed. “If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that you’re only a kid once. Once you grow up, you can never go back.”
