The Boss Baby Junior Novelization

  • My name is Tim, and this is my story. It starts when I was seven years old, and I relied on my imagination. Back then life was one big adventure after another. At least, that’s how I remember it. It was just the three of us—the Templetons. Me, Mom, and Dad.

    And Mom and Dad had lots of time to play with me.

    I had the greatest parents ever—and they had the coolest jobs! They worked for the biggest pet company in the world: Puppy Co. They got to test out all the new products for puppies. Sometimes, they let me help.

    But even though they were busy, they always had time for our adventures. Bath time was never just bath time—we would pretend we were swimming with sharks under the ocean!

    And every night, we had our special bedtime ritual. Three stories. Five hugs. And finally, Mom and Dad would sing my special song.

    “Little bird, don’t you cry, one day you will learn to fly. . . .”

    When they finished singing, they would tuck me in and I would drift off to sleep, perfectly content. I was the star of the Templeton family show. The center of the universe.

    Then one night something different happened. Mom and Dad read me three stories. They gave me five hugs. They sang the song. Then, before they tucked me in, Dad asked me, “Hey, Tim, how would you like to have a baby brother?”

    “No thanks,” I replied. “I’m enough.”

    Maybe I should have wondered why he asked me, but I didn’t. Instead, as I drifted off to sleep, I wondered where babies came from. Long conveyor belts carried new babies around a big baby factory. The babies got diapers and booties. Then a machine arm tickled their tummies. The babies who giggled got sent down a chute with a blinking green sign that read: FAMILY.

    I saw lots of babies giggle, one after the other. Then one baby got tickled, but he didn’t giggle at all! The sign turned red, and read: MANAGEMENT.

    A flipper knocked the baby down a long, steep chute. His booties and pacifier flew off. He dropped down the chute into a pair of black pants. Then machine hands gave him a pair of loafers, a watch, and a jacket and tie!

    A robotic suction-cup picked him up and dropped him into an office chair. The chair rolled down a long tube. A machine arm handed him a briefcase, and another arm handed him a bottle with a label that read: SUPER SECRET BABY FORMULA.

    Then the office chair rolled into a room filled with cubicles, like in Mom and Dad’s office. The baby in the suit slid behind the desk. Somehow, I knew what this strange baby was.

    He was a Boss Baby.

    When I woke up, I remembered the whole dream. I thought it was weird and then forgot about it, until a few weeks later.

    That’s when everything changed, and my weird dream became a real-live nightmare!
