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!

This review is also posted on my blog, [...].

This book is a short, cute read. The main conflict here is the four members of the Baby-Sitters Club getting in a huge fight that causes them to avoid each other in school and take turns answering the phone at club meetings so that they don't all have to attend. While separated from her friends, shy Mary Anne meets Dawn Schafer, a new girl in school who just moved from California. The girls form a fast friendship and discover their parents actually knew each other in high school. Though the original story of this book is decades old, I'm still loathe to give anything away to readers who maybe haven't read it and want to read the graphic novel adaption. But suffice to say, Mary Anne is put in some sticky situations and forced to make some mature decisions without the help of her friends and at the same time makes a new friend for possibly the first time in her life.

The pictures in this book are absolutely adorable and the essence of the girls (especially Mary Anne, with her hair in two braids) seems to be captured very well. I did find myself wishing that Claudia's outfits were a bit wilder, but it's possible that she was still relatively tame in those early books. The technology has also been updated, with Mary Anne surprised that Dawn has a DVD player in her room (as opposed to the VCR player that it was in the original book). While these changes jarred me a little as an original reader of the series, they do make sense for an updated story and obviously it wouldn't bother younger readers.

One of the best things about this adaption is that the whole "chapter 2" is skipped.

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.
