    is it normal that seeing tigger made me cry? this is one of my all-time favorite bsc books, and the adaptation was pretty faithful. the main change was that this book saw the introduction of jessi, which was great! no blase and harmful plotline of racist neighbors, just good ol’ fashioned jessi and mal bonding over horse books and such (and foreshadowing charlotte and becca’s bff-ship to come).

    Like its source text, Logan Likes Mary Anne!, the plot here is simple and low-conflict: Mary Anne and Logan like each other and begin to go to dances and parties together, but Mary Anne is very shy and constantly thinks she has ruined the relationship by doing something embarrassing. Logan is sweet and tries to reassure her. They begin a sweet puppy-love type relationship.

Logan is sweet and tries to reassure her. They begin a sweet puppy-love type relationship. This is a hard one to translate to a visual medium because it's so introspective, but Gale Galligan's adaptation hits the right emotional beats and includes some memorable details, like Mary Anne's Famous Cities skirt, Richard's awkward but kind dad-ing, and the club coming together to show they appreciate Mary Anne even if they don't fully understand her. Jessi is added in this book - to my immense relief since I was afraid they were going to drop her entirely - though she feels shoehorned in. With that said, I like her character design and her scenes with Mallory are sweet. (I will forever renounce anything negative I ever said about how Mallory and Jessi's introductions were handled in the series if they're brave enough to make them a couple.) Stray Observations Kristy wears a burgundy hat and looks more than ever like her TV counterpart in this, the first graphic novel released since the TV show! I'll be the first to declare that the way the experience of race and racism were depicted in the BSC books was problematic (it very much doubled down on the "racists = bad people" simplistic narrative that makes white people feel good about themselves for not being like those cartoonishly bad racists in the book, case closed, no need to look at my own thoughts or actions any further). However, I'm also uneasy with the adaptations simply... dropping any story or dialogue about race. More characters are depicted as being POC (including Logan in this book), but it's never discussed and never seems to have any impact on anything. This adaptation drops a key component of the Logan storyline, namely his refusal to go to meetings because there is too much "girl talk" and because being in a group of all girls makes him uncomfortable (and he can tell that his presence is making them uncomfortable). Instead, they replace it with a weak excuse about how he has to baby-sit his siblings during the meeting times and was, for some reason, too embarrassed to say (as if Kristy would have a problem with that - an unrelated conflict would have made more sense to me). I'm curious as to why this element was dropped; I wonder if it felt to Gale and the Scholastic editors as if young people today wouldn't relate to these problems because they're more accustomed to mixed-gender friendships? I have a sneaking suspicion that there's an element at play similar to the race thing, where they'd rather pretend that "identity politics" don't exist and that people of different demographics (gender, race, etc.) don't have different experiences of the world than address it in even the mildest of ways.

    Gale Galligan wraps up her tour of duty on the Baby-Sitters Club graphic novel adaptations just as she is hitting her stride. Shy Mary Anne gets all excited and anxious as new boy in school Logan Bruno starts paying attention to her. A warm and fuzzy little story about dating in eighth grade.

    Logan Likes Mary Anne was a graphic novel about Mary Anne and her journey to break out of her shell. On that journey, she meets Logan who helps her with her shyness. I enjoyed the previous Baby-Sitters Club books more than this one. This one felt inauthentic to me because Mary Anne is known to be a timid person, but all of a sudden she is breaking out of her shell and meeting new people and getting a boyfriend in the 8th grade. I'm not saying any of that is terrible, but it just doesn't seem lik Logan Likes Mary Anne was a graphic novel about Mary Anne and her journey to break out of her shell.

This book felt like a serious deviation from Mary Anne’s character and a huge transition that I don't believe would have happened as quickly as it happened in this short graphic novel. Besides that, I still enjoyed the illustrations in this book and Mary Anne’s new cat, Tigger. I give this a 3

    Oh gosh, this one was so cute! I forgot about these ones until Netflix decided to do the series. These are so awesome, though they do kind of lack diversity in some ways. The series DEFINITELY helped with this one. This book had so many funny parts, that I swear that this book is one of my new favorites.

    It's okay. Follows the plot line of the original book pretty good, only problem was that original book wasn't that good to start with. (No offense) I mean, not the worst, could definitely be better. Like the art style, though! Uhhhhhhhhh don't know what else to say........ Conclusion: meh book, great art! It's okay.

    A nice addition to this series. Mary Ann is starting 8th grade and develops a crush on Logan Bruno, a boy who just moved to town. Mary Ann is shy and often unsure of herself, but Logan is a great guy who likes her as well. And guess what? He's also a babysitter! The artwork was attractive and colorful. The story was sweet. Fans of this series and the original Babysitters Club books will love this one. A nice addition to this series.

    I started reading the Baby-Sitters Club graphic novels when I was 9. Since then, I have been an avid reader of this series. I was so excited when I heard that a new Baby-Sitters Club book was coming out, especially after watching the Netflix adaptation. Unfortunately, the eighth book in the series, ¨Logan Likes Mary-Anne", was not up to the high standards I had for this series.

Since then, I have been an avid reader of this series. I was so excited when I heard that a new Baby-Sitters Club book was coming out, especially after watching the Netflix adaptation. Unfortunately, the eighth book in the series, ¨Logan Likes Mary-Anne", was not up to the high standards I had for this series. I felt like this book had a shallow plot compared to the other books in the series, which had more interesting plots with riveting side-stories that contributed to the development of the main character. For example, the fourth book in the series, "Claudia and Mean Janine", revolved around Claudia having family troubles (main plot) while the club was struggling to run a summer day-camp (side-story). These two different situations provided Claudia an opportunity to develop more depth to her character. In "Logan Likes Mary-Anne", the main plot was about Mary-Anne liking a boy named Logan. Without context, this sounds like a setup for a decent book. That being said, there were no other side-stories that would support Mary-Anne's character development. As you can imagine, I was shocked when I finished the book and realized "that was it". It was literally a book about a girl liking a boy and finding out he likes her back. I was just expecting a more gripping plot or at least some kind of emotional development with Mary-Anne other than her liking someone and him liking her back. I would recommend this book to people aged 7-10 who like quick, light hearted reads.

    This was charming! I've enjoyed all of the BSC graphic novels I've read so far, and was looking forward to this one in particular, as this was one of my favorite books in the series when I was a kid. The way these adaptations have re-written Mallory and Jessi's entry into the BSC is an interesting choice, much less dramatic than in the original stories. The re-write for why Logan doesn't join as a full member was a little goofy, but whatever. It worked. Mary Anne's character growth and the buddi This was charming!

    Mary Anne is my least favorite BSC member, and this one was mainly about her. I get being shy, but running out on the dance and her own birthday party just seemed over the top annoying and childish. She’s lucky the rest of the BSC are such good friends to her despite this. 🤷‍♀️

    I still shy away from being the center of attention, so I feel your pain Mary Anne! Logan is pretty great because he doesn’t scare easy, not sure how realistic that maturity is in an 8th grade boy but... a super fun read nonetheless.

    Really enjoyed reading the series. Growing up with the babysitter club books really taught me a lot. And now being able to read them as graphic novels and seeing the younger kids today reading these as well makes me feel really good about this generation. This was such a cute story and really well written.

    I love these graphic novel adaptations of the BSC books! I just love how they've changed the story in subtle ways that really do improve it, and how they've made the stories themselves so much more inclusive. It just makes my heart happy to see them updated the right way! I love these graphic novel adaptations of the BSC books!

    I honestly can't remember if the original series was this diverse, but this book might be my favorite of the series so far. I'm sad that it's the last of Gale's illustrations, though!
