Kristy’s Great Idea (The Baby-Sitters Club) based on the novel by Ann M. Martin by Raina Telgemeier

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.


I few weeks back, I received an advanced reading copy of the new FULL COLOUR EDITION of Kristy’s Great Idea. Too bad mine (being a proof) was mostly black and white (but hey- I can imagine the awesomeness). It was totally a nostalgic read to re-live these characters’ stories. And the best part? All their issues (divorce, diabetes, etc.) are still relevant today.

As one of the most popular series ever published, it makes sense to be re-created as a graphic novel. Raina’s illustrations are spot on, and I enjoyed the change up between panel and full page drawings. If you loved the series as a kid, or introducing it for the first time, the author/illustrator combo of Kristy’s Great Idea is perfect.
