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.

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!

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.

I was so excited when the first of The Baby-Sitters Club Graphix book was released. Being a Baby-Sitters devotee, I was so excited that the series that got me hooked into reading series of books when I was 9 years old would get a new breath of life. I was excited that it could possibly become a series that a whole new generation of kids could fall in love with.

Raina Telgemeier's work is ah-mazing. You need to check out her portfolio here. I think she did a superb job of updating the characters to give it more of a modern flair without compromising the essence of each character's personality. I think she really captured each character nicely. The only character that looked a little different in the book than in my head was Claudia.

In this story, the girls of the Baby-Sitters Club are at war with each other and Mary Anne is in the middle trying play peacemaker between all the girls. I had a hard time remembering the original book, but it seemed like the girls spent whole book fighting with each other and the preteen hormones were getting a little old towards the end. I especially liked how Raina introduced Dawn and the back story of the high school relationship between Mary Anne's father and Dawn's mother.

Overall:
It was an excellent graphic novel. I think a lot of young girls could definitely get into the Baby-Sitters Club series through this book and that makes it worth reading and sharing!

This was an awesome book. I love how Mary Ann met a new friend and so did the girls. What was real sad is that they didn't make up for a while. I loved the unexpected twist how Jenny (I think that's her name correct me if I'm wrong) got sick and had a 104 fever. I liked how Dawn was there to help, also. Mary Ann is so responsible but she has an overprotective father. ***SPOILERS😮😮*** I think dawn's mother and Mary Ann's father are going to get married cause they are both free agents and also, they went to prom together so they must've liked each other back in college/high school. How cute!!💜💜💜💜😁😁😁😁 overall, it was an amazing book and I can't wait to see what's in store....😁😁😁😁😁😁😁
