    This is my first Gale Galligan BSC graphic novel adaptation. I’ve already read three of Raina Telgemeier’s adaptations so it was almost impossible not to compare the two. I love Raina’s style and had wanted her to continue adapting the entire series. I like Gale’s style as well so it was more a matter of me getting used to seeing the babysitters looking different. Gale dyes a section of Claudia’s hair, just like Raina did. However, Gale has also given Stacey a haircut, which didn’t sit with me as This is my first Gale Galligan BSC graphic novel adaptation.

I like Gale’s style as well so it was more a matter of me getting used to seeing the babysitters looking different. Gale dyes a section of Claudia’s hair, just like Raina did. However, Gale has also given Stacey a haircut, which didn’t sit with me as a BSC purist that well, even though it looks cute. While the plot remains the same, I noticed many more minor differences between the book and this graphic novel than I have with Raina’s adaptations. I’m not mentioning all of the differences here as there are too many, but here are some of them. Book: Watson’s mansion has three floors and an attic. Graphic novel: The illustration of Watson’s mansion shows two floors and an attic. [image error] Book: Mallory isn’t a member of the BSC yet. Graphic novel: Mallory is mentioned as the sixth member of the BSC. Book: Watson’s parents being religious is not mentioned. Graphic novel: Kristy’s mother talks about Watson’s parents being religious as one of the reasons why she and Watson need to get married before the Thomas’ move to the Brewer mansion. Book: Kristy mentions having two windows in her childhood bedroom. Graphic novel: I can only see one window in Kristy’s childhood bedroom in the illustrations. Kristy arrives late to a BSC meeting and asks if there are any calls. Book: Sam’s prank call was, ‘Hello, this is Marmee March. I need a sitter for Amy tonight, someone who has experience with little women.’ Graphic novel: Sam asks for a sitter with ‘experience with lots of smelly farts.’ The book version was better. Book: Claudia searches for junk food under her bed. Graphic novel: Claudia finds some junk food on a shelf in her closet. Book: Claudia says Trevor is probably dating his poetry by now. Graphic novel: Claudia says Trevor is probably dating his guitar by now. Book: Sam and Kristy have their talk about David Michael’s Citizenship Award on the back porch. Graphic novel: Sam and Kristy have their talk about David Michael’s Citizenship Award in the kitchen. Book: Mallory isn’t a member of the BSC yet so she’s not babysitting with them. Graphic novel: Mallory gets put in Kristy’s babysitting group. Book: Nannie’s Pink Clinker has a pink plastic flower attached to the antenna and a stuffed koala hanging from the rearview mirror. Graphic novel: The pink plastic flower and the antenna are missing and stuffed koala is now some fuzzy dice. There’s a heart on the bonnet that I liked. The Pink Clinker looks closer to red than pink to me. [image error] Book: When they’re cleaning the house, Charlie has the floor cleaner, Sam has the vacuum cleaner, Kristy has paper towels and Windex, and David Michael has rags and furniture polish. Graphic novel: When they’re cleaning the house, Charlie is vacuuming, Sam is cleaning the windows, Kristy is tidying, and David Michael is dusting. Book: Stacey calls Mary Anne from the movies using a pay phone. Graphic novel: Stacey calls Mary Anne from the movies using her own phone. Book: David Michael gets his hair cut by Mr Pratt. Graphic novel: David Michael gets his hair cut by Mr Gates, the one who’s previously made him look like an owl. Book: In the practice wedding performed by the kids, ‘holy matrimony’ becomes ‘holy moly’. Graphic novel: In the practice wedding performed by the kids, ‘holy matrimony’ becomes ‘holy guacamole’. Book: When Karen explains why having white flowers at the wedding are a disaster, it’s because white magic will mix with Morbidda Destiny’s black magic. Graphic novel: When Karen explains why having white flowers at the wedding are a disaster, it’s because evil witches use white flowers in their magic and Morbidda Destiny will be able to sense them from next door. Book: Kristy’s rehearsal dinner dress is white with woven silver designs. Graphic novel: Kristy’s rehearsal dinner dress is green and blue. Book: Kristy’s bridesmaid shoes are yellow. Graphic novel: Kristy’s bridesmaid shoes are white. Also, the clothes the kids wear in their practice wedding are different and the kids are positioned differently in the photo that’s taken of them on the couch. Karen freaks out at the wedding a little later than she did in the book and it’s Karen who accepts Mrs Porter’s present, not Watson. I can’t imagine Karen touching anything Morbidda Destiny has touched for fear of her magic. I liked Claudia’s drawing lesson, where she explains how to draw simple roses, although I haven’t attempted them myself because I’m extremely artistically challenged. My stick men don’t even consistently look like stick men. [image error] My favourite illustration shows some of the wedding scenes. [image error] I’m rounding up from 4.5 stars.

    Kristy's mom is about to get married to Watson and then they will have to move to Watson's mansion on the other side of the town. Kristy isn't too happy about the move since she'll be moving further away and she doesn't know how she'll still be a part of the baby-sitters club. Kristy has the whole summer to think about that until her mom has to move up the wedding and the moving of the house as well. The wedding is in less than three weeks now.

The baby-sitters club come up with different ideas to help baby-sit all the kids and they manage to include fun activities each day. Simultaneously, Kristy is preparing for the wedding too and her clothes as well as she will be the bridesmaid. When the wedding day finally arrives, Kristy along with everyone else attends the wedding and during the wedding, Kristy comes to terms with Watson and her mom getting married and their families coming together to make a one big family. This was beautiful from the story to emotions to baby-sitter club's ideas to illustrations. I absolutely loved this and this has become my favorite from the series. 5 stars

    There was not one thing that I didn't love about this. Not saying that I was worried, but I wondered how Gale Galligan would incorporate Mallory into the story as a Club member (since the original took place before Mal joined) but that was well-handled. (Confession: I also wondered what would happen with Dawn's handwriting, as I have vested interest in that particular subject. For the record: it looks the same and I am content.)

The story was wonderful and well-drawn, and it was a great adaption of what might be one of my favourite BSC books. But aside from all that, can I gush about the artwork? I love Ms Galligan's BSC. The anime-like faces, the over-exaggeration of the emotion - I love it all. Every page gave me a new visual treat, something to get excited and squeal about. It's just so damn cute, which is absolutely perfect to me. I wanted to hug this book when I finished it, that's how much I loved it. But instead I wiped my tears (the wedding scene was SO beautifully drawn!!) and joined this perfect book with the rest of the collection.

    When I was in elementary school, I probably read close to 100 Babysitter’s Little Sister books. So naturally, every time Karen makes an appearance in this series, my heart literally melts from the nostalgia. Definitely going to read the graphic novels about her when they’re published!

    Kristy’s mom is marrying Watson in two weeks, and as all the friends and family come to town, the BSC takes on the task of watching 14 kids. While this has some amusing hijinks with the kids, it lacked the usual drama. There were no fights. No evil baby-sitting gang moving in on their turf, just a lot of kids.

    unlike the previous bsc graphic novel (Dawn and the Impossible Three) this book stuck pretty close to the original. the source material, Kristy's Big Day, translates well to the graphic format. I've read the original kristy's big day at least 20 times throughout my life, and reading this adaptation was pretty spot-on the same experience. mallory obviously wasn't in the bsc by the original kristy's big day, but she fits pretty seamlessly into this story. the one very very very slight issue I have unlike the previous bsc graphic novel (Dawn and the Impossible Three) this book stuck pretty close to the original. the source material, Kristy's Big Day, translates well to the graphic format.

    I like Galligan's second entry in this series much better than her first adaptation. It probably helps that the source material is much stronger, with a big wedding and a focus on the club founder. I like Galligan's second entry in this series much better than her first adaptation.

    In the latest graphic novelization of the series, Kristy's mother plans and organizes her wedding in two and a half weeks. Having planned my own wedding, I would say that is a fricking miracle. Cute problem solving in the baby sitting arena. Not sure if they are going to republish all 213 novels in this series, but so far, I am enjoying the adoptions.

    What can you say about a baby sitters club book, nothing really, I have only ever read the 1st and 2nd actual novel but I think the graphic novels are definitely not better (because they do not have a much detail) but still good. Baby sitter club books make you want to be part of a club like that, and we have all talked to our friend about starting one, but it never happened, haha. The books have so much that happen this book particularly, I like how it shows two family’s blending together to ma What can you say about a baby sitters club book, nothing really, I have only ever read the 1st and 2nd actual novel but I think the graphic novels are definitely not better (because they do not have a much detail) but still good.

    Kris - My Novelesque Life

    RATING: 4 STARS (Review Not on Blog) As a kid I LOVED the Baby-Sitters Club and would often spend hours scouring the library for the next title. Honestly, I probably read the series longer than I should have (reading level-wise), but it always felt like visiting friends. While I have never wanted to be a babysitter, I loved the club idea. As a bossy creative kid this was right up my alley. The friendships in this book was something I had always wanted.

As a bossy creative kid this was right up my alley. The friendships in this book was something I had always wanted. This was a series I grew up with and was my favourite for a long time. Confession time, I may have had a bit of a crush on Logan. I was working at the library and saw that this graphic novel come in while I checked material in. I was excited to see that Baby-Sitters Club was being introduced to another generation. I thumbed through the book and saw this was the same story with a few updates. While usually I am not a fan of updating original stories (as it gives us the time and place when something was first written), I was okay with this series being updated. Moving this novelized book into a graphic novel made it easier to accept new changes. I would definitely recommend this one to those who once enjoyed reading BSC in the past. This is also great read for young girls between 9-12. Kristy's mother is getting married and while she is against it - not wanting to move away from her friends - but she cannot resist a big job for BSC.

    Kristy’s mom asks her to be a bridesmaid in her upcoming wedding to Watson. However, because of a work trip and when they can sell Kristy’s house the wedding is moved up from fall to summer. Also, there are a bunch of adults coming in the week before to help the wedding happen and they are bringing their 14 kids.

However, because of a work trip and when they can sell Kristy’s house the wedding is moved up from fall to summer. Also, there are a bunch of adults coming in the week before to help the wedding happen and they are bringing their 14 kids. Kristy suggests that the baby sitter club watch all the kids and her mom agrees and offers to pay them double their rate. Meanwhile Kristy is nervous about her mom getting married and having a step dad and having to move, but her older brothers make her feel better. The baby sitters divide up the kids by age and have one baby sitter per group and they have colored name tags to keep the kids and groups straight (Red Star group, bluebird group and so on). On Sunday everyone arrives and Kristy is nevervous as she sees the kids get upset. But on Monday (the baby sitters first day of watching all the kids) goes smoothly even as some of them were dropped off crying. The next day the groups split up with Stacy taking her group to fish, and Claudia, Krystie and Mallory take their groups to the library. The issue comes for Dawn when she tries to go to the park to have the kids make puppets for a contest. Karen tells stories about martians coming to take them away and upsets all the kids. The next day Stacey has the issues when she tries to take the kids to see Mary Poppins, one girl looses her money (eventually finds it in her shoe) and then toward the end of the film drops her candy from the balcony and they are thrown out of the movie. The next day Krystie and Mary Ann take all the boys to get their hair cut, they talk back to the barber but Krystie has a talk with them and it works out. The next day it is rainy so they have the kids in a pretend wedding which goes well, but when they go to dress the kids for the rehersal dinner one of the kids swapped all the clothes - that girl is sent to a room to think about what she did while the others get ready. Finally it is the wedding day, Krystie invites Mary Ann (her neighbor for not much longer) over to help her get dressed in her bridesmaid gown. They go to the new house for the wedding and Krystie shows her friends the room that will be her new bedroom (which is much bigger than her old one). The wedding happens (with beautiful illustrations and no words) and then Krysite’s oldest brother watches them while the newlyweds go on their honeymoon. He makes cute rules like that they must eat pizza and stay up an hour late. Finally Krystie gets Claudia’s help to make an artwork that shows their families merging (like a merging family tree) the story also breaks for a quick tutorial on how to draw a rose since that is part of Krystie’s design.

    Anyone who's spent any time with me probably knows I grew up on Ann M.Martin books. My mom bought be a Babysitters Little Sister book to help me get through the trauma that was getting glasses (Karen got TWO pairs because that girl did everything in twos).

I would try and sneakily borrow my oldest sisters BSC books (and she did not trust me so it didn't work out until much later and she created a library check out system to ensure she got them back) when Dawn moved back to California I picked up the California diaries. I watched the movie, and squealed as an adult when I found that Netflix ordered the TV show. I ADORE the babysitters club. It's because of Karen Brewer (and the Wakefield twins) that i am the reader that I am today. So when Goodreads made it known to me Karen was getting a graphic novel, I wanted in on that. And in my hunt for that I saw that BSC has SIX (or more?) Graphic Novels already out. It's a no brainer for me. It did not disappoint. It has the charm of the original books while adding in a lot of fun humor with the graphic design. They are of course easy reads both because it's meant for middle grade and because it's a graphic novel. I think it took me maybe 30 minutes to get through it. But coming back to Stoneybrooke was wonderful. This book deals with Kristy preparing for the wedding between her mom and her fiance Watson (Karen's dad). While she's excited, she's nervous because the marriage means a lot of changes and she isn't sure how their new family unit will work. I think it brought up a lot of good topics, and while it really didn't have the opportunity to really explore them in depth i think it was a good opportunity to show kids that it's okay to feel that way and they can talk to someone about those feelings. After finishing this book I have a very strong urge to buy Al of them, and also the original series just go go back and reminisce. The point of this ramble is if you ever liked BSC you'll enjoy the memories this brings you. If you're NEW to BSC I think these are a wonderful starting point.
