Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

The Baby-Sitters Club graphic novels - adapted by #1 New York Times bestseller Raina Telgemeier, are now available in full colour!

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. But 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 humour of the original novel!

" Telgemeier's text never talks down…and the comic-book art form she uses has both a simplicity and a sophistication that makes it accessible to 10- and 12-year-olds…" -The Montreal Gazette

" The better Telgemeier's books sell, the less hand-wringing to do over the next generation. If this is what the youth of America are into, the kids are all right." -New York Times
