Babysitters Club: Kristy's Great Idea by Ann M. Martin adapted by Raina Telgemeier

The saga begins as Kristy convinces Mary Anne, Claudia, and new comer Stacey to start a club to babysit for the neighborhood. While the foursome tries to deal with new clients and new kids, they also have to deal with their own lives and the pressures and changes that abound. Will their friendship survive?

Obviously not a long in-depth summary, but I kind of feel like everyone knows the Baby-Sitters Club series. Raina Telgemeier does a commendable job of encompassing who each character is. Nothing is outrageous or mind-blowing, but perfectly acceptable at introducing the
BSC to a new generation. Mostly this is just an excuse for me to promote the "Where are They Now" by Emily Weiss, which makes me giggle every time that I read it.

"Janine's superior intellect and demanding career left little room in her life for anything else. She has many, many parakeets as a result."

Hilarious. Of course all this Baby-Sitters Club chatter brings one thing to the forefront of my mind:

It's been stuck in my head all day.
Babysitters Club... Say hello to your friends.... Babysitters Club.....
