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!

          I recommend this book because it is very sentimental, funny, and happy. It talks about how Logan likes Mary Anne. It also talks about Mary Anne's birthday party fail and she was very sad.

                  Even though it’s the first book of the BSC series, it’s one of the best! It shows how Kristy starts the baby-sitters club and their early challenges. Although Ann M. Martin’s version had a lot more details than the graphic novel, it’s still very good!

                    This book is super great! I've never read the original series, but the graphic novelization is amazing! Raina Telgemeier makes the story pop using her unique and colorful drawing skills. I'd definitely recommend it to someone who likes classics re-imagined.
