The baby-sitters are back in their fourth graphic novel!

Claudia and her sister, Janine, may as well be from two different planets. Claudia, who pays more attention to her art than her grades, feels she can't compete with her perfect sister.

While Janine devotes all her time to working on her Web site, The Baby-sitters Club is busy with their new summer play group. But when something terrible happens to their grandmother, Mimi, the two sisters discover they're more alike than they originally thought.

I have all four of the graphic novels of the Babysitter's Club, and I love the way the characters are brought to life. I have always loved this series, and the graphic novels have a way of making the series even better. If you want to get a non book lover into the BSC, these books are a great way to start. I love them!

Poor Claudia!! She has her "perfect" sister's footsteps to follow. However, Janine secretly wishes she could be more artsy and carefree like Claudia. This is a very realistic story of how sisters interact. When I was a tween I read the entire Babysitters Club series. I learned how to deal with all kinds of problem children, crazy things that can occur while babysitting, and how to be more organized. The Babysitters Club taught me all about "Kid Kits" and accurately show how girls interact with each other. The characters and their situations are very realistic. The family settings mirror your own. The girls are totally likeable and it is amazing to me that the author could come up with all kinds of scenarios. These books inspired me when I was learning to babysit.
