Babysitter’s Club

Ishaana Patel, Age 8

Hi! 👋 I hope you enjoy this blogpost! 

We all know about the babysitter’s club. The babysitters club was created in 1986 and has over 200 books! 

There are 131 novels in the main series, as well as 15 Super Specials, three-dozen mysteries, and lots of other books featuring the characters Ann M. Martin created. On September 1st, 2020, Gale Galligan, the author and Illustrator of the graphic novels is releasing Logan likes Mary Anne! She writes the same story, but she writes it differently. Does that make sense? 😁  

Some of the older books, include: 

Kristy’s big day, Stacey’s mistake, Mary Anne saves the day, The truth about Stacey, The ghost at Dawn’s house, Claudia and the new girl, Claudia and the phantom phone calls, Kristy and the snobs, Poor Mallory! And much more. 

There are two Mystery books: 

Beware, Dawn! And Stacey y el anillo perdido.  {I have NO idea how to pronounce that!} 

Four of the eight graphic novels are By Raina Telegiemer While the other four are by Gale Galliga 

Raina: Kristy’s big day  

Raina: The truth about Stacey 

Raina: Mary Anne saves the day 

Raina: Claudia and mean Janine 

Gale: Dawn and the impossible three 

Gale: Kristy’s big day 

Gale: Boy- Crazy Stacey 

Gale: Logan Likes Mary Anne! 

My cousins came to my house in July. We all watched the Babysitters club Netflix original {you should check it out!} series and we even made a group chat on messages called the Babysitters club! If you want to watch the series, here is the link. 

In the group chat, we texted videos of Babysitters club stuff, and my sister found this quiz! It tells you which Character you are from the babysitters club! 

My ratings 

I personally have never seen a book created by Gale Galligan. 

However, I have seen A – LOT of books from Raina Telegiemer. I read one of her books last night, and the night before that I read Smile. I like Raina’s Style of writing: She writes about what really happened when she was a kid. I really enjoy reading it repeatedly.  

I do enjoy their Illustrations, Too. I’ve brought Smile and/or the babysitters club downstairs got paper and a pencil, tried to copy the Illustarations, and it turned out just to be sort of like a stick figure! Gale and Raina are both very good Illustrators. 

I’d rate all the babysitters club book 5 stars! They are all awesome! 

I have all the all the babysitters club books, and I love all of them. 

Gale is a great Illustrator, but for me there is one problem with the pictures: The pictures are very distracting and makes it hard to read.  

I know that I’ve said this MANY times, but it is a great series. Both the graphic novels and the normal books are awesome, and I think you should read it. It is best to read the books in order, but once you’re done, it is fun to read it again. 

Also, there is a new series called Babysitters little sisters. It’s about Kristy’s {Club president and founder} little sister Karen. 

I hope you enjoyed reading this and have a good day!
