Summary

Summary

These graphic novels adapted by Raina Telgemeier, #1 New York Times bestselling and Eisner Award winning creator of Smile , are now available in full color!

Poor Stacey. She just moved to a new town, is still coming to terms with her diabetes, and is facing baby-sitting problems left and right. Fortunately, Stacey has three new friends -- Kristy, Claudia, and Mary Anne. Together they're the BSC -- and they will deal with whatever's thrown their way... even if it's a rival baby-sitting club!

Raina Telgemeier, in the same signature style featured in Smile and Sisters , perfectly captures all the drama and humor of the original novel!

Horn Book Review

While the club runs into a larger babysitting agency (run by older students more interested in money than in children) that threatens to put Kristy et al. out of business, club member Stacey comes to terms with overprotective parents, lost friendships, and her diabetes. No-frills dialogue and dynamic black-and-white panel illustrations skillfully convey sympathetic characters and an array of well-realized conflicts. (c) Copyright 2010.
