Bubble Busters is a SpongeBob SquarePants book published by Scholastic in 2005. The book is about SpongeBob trying to uncover the mystery of who is popping his bubbles.

In 2010, it was re-released under the alternate title Get the Pest.



The story starts with SpongeBob going to sleep with a numerous amount of bubbles. In the morning, SpongeBob finds that all of his bubbles are popped. He then starts an investigation to find out who popped them, starting with trying to identify footprints he found. They trace to Squidward's house, right where he was standing, on for Squidward to assure him those were his footprints. He and Patrick agree to help SpongeBob capture the bubble-popping thief.

Squidward and Patrick have a stakeout in SpongeBob's bedroom while he sleeps. Patrick then falls asleep, only for Squidward to take a shot of the thief. Ironically, the thief is SpongeBob himself, who popped the bubbles in his sleep. At the end, SpongeBob laughs at the fact that he was the thief all along.
