I started reading the original Babysitters Club when I was in 4th grade. We had just moved back to the States and were still unpacking boxes in Kansas when I got sick and was stuck in bed. Mom went to the local public library to get me some books. One of the ones she chose was Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls, #2 in Ann M. Martin's beloved series. And I was hooked. I'm so glad this generation of young readers has a Babysitters Club graphic novel series to love! And I'm happy to share that the newest release is out this week!
Boy-Crazy Stacey adapted by Gale Galligan (#7 - 09/03/19)
Stacey and Mary Anne are baby-sitting for the Pike family for two weeks at the New Jersey shore. Things are great in Sea City: There's a gorgeous house right on the beach, a boardwalk, plenty of sun and sand... and the cutest boy Stacey has ever seen!
Mary Anne thinks that Stacey should leave Scott alone and focus on the Pike kids, but Stacey's in love. Looking for reasons to hang around his lifeguard stand takes up all her time, which means Mary Anne has to do the job of two baby-sitters! How can she tell Stacey that Scott just isn't interested without ruining their friendship and breaking Stacey's heart?
