Based on Ann M. Martin's bestselling series, America's favorite baby-sitters are back -- this time, in a heart-warming and hilarious graphic novel.

In this new graphic novel edition of the very first BABY-SITTERS CLUB book, Raina Telgemeier captures all the drama of the original in warm, spunky illustrations. Witness Kristy's eureka moment, when she gets the idea for a "baby-sitters club" and enlists her best friends, shy Mary Anne and artistic Claudia, in an exciting new venture. But the baby-sitting business isn't the only thing absorbing their attention: Kristy is having a hard time accepting her stepdad-to-be, and the newest member of the gang, Stacey, seems to be hiding a secret.

    Many have grown to love the BSC series, but how was this brilliant business started? This book tells the story of how twelve-year-old Kristy Thomas, alongside her friends Mary Anne Spier, Claudia Kishi, and Stacey McGill, started the thriving, babysitting company called The Babysitter's Club. With teamwork, stick-to-itiveness, and business skills, the four friends build a strong business. I thought this book was great! It is the first book but unlike most first books of series, this one immediately gets you invested and interested in the entire series. This book teaches entrepreneur skills. It is fun to read, funny, and all about babysitting. This is a great book to welcome readers into an even greater series. I suggest if you like friendship, business starting, and babysitting. Happy reading!
