This graphic novel adapted by Raina Telgemeier, the #1 New York Times bestselling, multiple Eisner Award-winning author of Smile, is now available in full color!

Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia, and Stacey are best friends and founding members of The Baby-Sitters Club. Whatever comes up -- cranky toddlers, huge dogs, scary neighbors, prank calls -- you can count on them to save the day. Baby-sitting isn't always easy, and neither is dealing with strict parents, new families, fashion emergencies, and mysterious secrets. But no matter what, the BSC have what they need most: friendship.

Raina Telgemeier, using the signature style featured in her acclaimed graphic novels Smile and Sisters, perfectly captures all the drama and humor of the original novel!

This was recommended to me by my daughter. She loved this story and wanted me to read it. This is a graphic novel os based on the original series that I had read as a girl. I honestly forgot all about reading it until I started the story and it sounded familiar. I really enjoyed it…again. I loved the illustrations and the characters are great for younger girls. Kristy decides to start a club with her friends Claudia, Stacey, and Mary Anne. They baby-sit for the people in town but something is going on with Stacey and the girls aren’t sure what. Baby sitting could being in money and lots of fun but they weren’t expecting what happened.

I thought this was a really great story and a wonderful start to a series. The illustrations are well done, colorful and great to follow along with. This is a great read for younger girls and adults. I plan to get the entire series for my daughter. I highly recommend! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.

Have a great day and Happy Reading!

  1. I was a huge Babysitter’s Club fan when the books were first coming out. I found a copy of the graphic novel when I was volunteering at the bookfair and had a great time reading it. Glad your daughter enjoyed it!
