The Babysitters Club Graphic Novels Raina Telgemeier

Based on Ann M. Martin's novels in The Baby-Sitter's Club (BSC) series, these graphic novel adaptations by Raina Telgemeier are absolutely delightful, staying true to the original.

The resident ten year old enjoyed reading the challenges and perks of baby-sitting and the dynamics of friendship between Kristy and her friends in the BSC.

Four books have been adapted so far for the graphic novel presentation, with no more on the horizon at this time. Kristy's Great Idea starts it all, where the girls get together to form the club. In the Truth about Stacey, we watch Stacey go through some tough times, but manages fine thanks to her friends at the BSC. In Mary Anne Saves the Day, we see how Mary Anne rises to the occasion and handles her problems and keeps the BSC tight-knit again.Claudia and Mean Janine opens a window into Claudia and her sister's personalities and relationship.

The illustrations do a fantastic job of setting up the personality of each character with clear and big facial expressions that complement the text, adding a lot of movement and energy, making it crisp and heart-warming at the same time.
