This graphic novel adapted by Raina Telgemeier, the #1 New York Times
bestselling, multiple Eisner Award-winning author of Smile,
is now available in full color!

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. 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.

Raina Telgemeier, using the signature style featured in her acclaimed
graphic novels Smile and Sisters, perfectly captures all the
drama and humor of the original novel!
