What did you like about the book? Those who adore the Babysitters Club graphic novels have something to cheer about: a fifth title in this ever popular series. Dawn, the newest member of the club, accepts a job babysitting at the Barrett’s, where the kids are off the wall and the place is a mess. Dawn has to decide how to talk to Mrs. Barrett about the mayhem. She also has to contend with an increasingly grumpy Kristy, who is president of the club. Although the four previous books in the series were written and illustrated by superstar Raina Telgemeier, Gale Galligan does a great job of portraying the drama and challenges of the girls in the club, and her wonderful illustrations seem very close to those in the previous four books.

To whom would you recommend this book?  Kids age 10-15 who like the previous books will be delighted with this.

Who should buy this book? Elementary and middle school and public libraries

Where would you shelve it ? Graphic novels

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? If you’re a fan of the series, yes!

Reviewer’s Name, Library (or school), City and State: Stephanie Tournas, Robbins Library, Arlington, MA
