Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia, and Stacey are best friends and founding members of The Baby-sitters Club. Whatever type of problem that comes up like grumpy toddlers, huge dogs, scary neighbours, you can count on them to save the day. Baby-sitting isn't easy, and neither is dealing with strict parents, new families, and mysterious secrets. But no matter what, the Baby-sitters Club have what they need most: friendship. This book talks about how Kristy (the BSC founder and president) faces some family problems. What I liked about this book was how the four friends were fair with each other. They didn’t fight over who would be the “boss”. They are always there for each other whenever there is trouble, and that reminded me of one of my friends. What I didn’t like about this book was that Kristy’s mom and dad were divorced. It made me sad, so I would keep the parents together and make everyone happy. I rate this book a 10/10!

This new graphic novel version of the classic series was a big hit with my 8-year-old daughter. She prefers these first ones, done my Raina Telgemeier.

I love the babysitters club, and have always loved Sisters by Raina Telgemeier. I have read pretty much all 131 originals in the old series by Mary Anne Martin, so this was lots of fun to read!

I read Ann M. Martin's original novels as a tween and early teen, and they make up some of my fondest childhood memories. I have seen these new editions in my library for a while now and when I finally reached a good pausing point in my huge stack of books, I decided why not intersperse these into it? Relive some of those memories!

This first graphic novel, retelling how the BSC was formed and how the four original girls came together to form the club, was just amazing! The artwork is sensational - some of the characters' expressions made me laugh really hard! - and Telgemeier did an excellent job adapting the original story for this different format.

A delight to read and wonderful in inspiring me to remember my childhood!

The graphic novel does a great job of adapting this series for the modern reader.

Kristy had an idea about making a baby-sitting club. She tells her friends about it and they likes the idea. Her friends are Claudia, Mary Anne, and Stacy, but they Stacy is a new friend because she just moved from New York. Kristy didn't like her mom's boyfriend because she just doesn't like him She never wanted to baby-sit his kids. When she baby-sat them one time, she loved them and they loved her too. They didn't want her to go. That teaches a lesson that you shouldn't judge people before you know them. The graphic novel is fun and funny. Enjoy!
