The Graphics are wonderful and the story is very cute.

I was a huge fan of the original BSC series by Ann M. Martin, and I absolutely adore the new graphic novels.
Little Willow
They are a quick, easy read, though... not much of a challenge.

This third in the Baby Sitters Club (BSC) series of graphic novels is my favorite so far. Raina's drawings seem more detailed and lively in each successive book. I've been buying the BSC graphic novels for my niece who is finding real inspiration in the artwork while simply enjoying Ann Martin's time-honored stories, and I heartily recommend this series both for the clean, yet engaging stories, as well as the excellent graphics. Especially recommended for girls who are reluctant readers, because graphic novels are many times a great introduction to storytelling in book form.

Format: Paperback
Mary Anne Spier is an only child. With her late mother a distant memory, she really depends on her dad, her best friend Kristy (who is as loud as Mary Anne is quiet!), and her other friends, artistic Claudia and sophisticated Stacey, to bring her out of her shell. But she kind of likes being IN that shell. She also really likes being the secretary of the Baby-Sitters Club (which the idea-filled Kristy started) and baby-sitting kids in the neighborhood. When the members of the BSC have an unexpected fight, everything goes topsy-turvy, and Mary Anne feels very lonely. A little while later, she has a baby-sitting emergency. At first, she doesn't know what to do without adults or her friends around, but soon enough, she musters up the courage to speak up and do what needs to be done.

I was a huge fan of the original BSC series by Ann M. Martin, and I absolutely adore the new graphic novels. Raina Telgemier has done a wonderful job preserving the original storylines and depicting the characters and their environments as they were described in the books. Mary Anne - who was always my favorite character - looks a lot like I always pictured her, braids and all. Three cheers for this, the third book in the BSC Graphix line!

Format: Paperback
Mary Anne saves the day is a great book for beginning babysitters. Mary Anne finds herself babysitting a child that comes down with a very high fever who has become listless and hard to wake up. She does an excellent job checking the child's temperature, remembering where the emergency numbers were and contacting the people on the list. This book is a great reminder of how to stay calm in an emergency situation and how to be organized in as well. Thankfully the young girl's problem was easily fixed, which isn't the case with the four members of the Baby Sitters Club. They have a falling out and try to run the club without actually speaking to one another. Over the few weeks that they are not speaking to one another, Mary Anne does a lot of growing up and learns to take charge, both in the above situation and at home with her father. It will take someone very strong and assertive to get the club back on track. Is Mary Anne up for the job? Read for yourself to find out!

I'm happy to see my ten year old getting interested in this series. They bring out some important life lessons, like divorce, losing a parent, helping a sick child etc... They also show kids doing something useful with their time and making friendships last a lifetime, even when it gets hard. I enjoyed rereading this story as an adult and I'm sure your child will enjoy it too.
