A graphic novel adaptation of Book 1 of the classic series!

Summary:

After seeing how many young children live in her neighborhood and the number of times her mom was looking for a sitter for her younger brother David-Michael, Kristy had an idea: start a club for baby-sitters! First she tells her best friend, Mary-Anne, then they talk to Claudia; and Claudia invites Stacy, her new friend who just moved from New York City. Together, the girls work out how “The Baby-Sitters Club” will function. To gain experience, they start a notebook so they could share their babysitting experience with each of their events: babysitting dogs, dealing with difficult parents, and working at creepy houses. 


BTSYA / Teen Reader (15):
The stories talk about shool issues and growing up as a girl trying to be more mature. I enjoyed how the books expand over time, becasue it allows you to easily relate to the themes. The drawings are simple and offer a perfect representation of each event.

This is not a book that you can read over and over again. With most books, you can re-read them and it is exciting each time. This one would be very boring to read again. Overall, it is worth checking out at the library to see if you like the stories and the charcters.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Get in on the ground floor of the Baby-sitters Club. The illustrations in the graphic novel adaptation will be enjoyable, even if you have read the all-narrative version.

Content Awareness Factors:

None, though our teen reviewer commented that there is "flirtatious language."

This is a graphic novel adaptation of the highly popular series by Ann Martin.
