I thought that it was a good read, but the one thing that is incorrect about the book is that in the original series, "The Truth About Stacey," is the third book while Claudia and the Phantom Phone Caller is the second book. They literally skipped 1 book in the series and in my opinion, Claudia and the Phantom Phone caller was one of the best books in the series.

Telgemeierin piirtämä Baby-Sitters Clubin kakkonen jatkaa samaa kivaa linjaa, kuin ensimmäinenkin. Neljän erilaisen tytön perustama klubi saa kilpailijan, kun isommat tytöt perustavat uuden yrityksen, Baby-Sitters Agencyn. Uudella firmalla on tehokas mainoskampanja ja tytöt saavat huomata kanta-asiakaudensakin kaikkoavan, koska vanhemmat nuoret saavat valvoa myöhempään. Ikänsä vuoksi he saavuttavat myös asiakkaiden luottamuksen, erityisesti pienimpien lasten hoitajana. Eräs lapsista ei vaikuta k ...more

I would really like to know if this is supposed to be a modernized-version of the baby-sitters club. The book itself never mentions what year it is, but I know the original series by Anne M. Martin was written in the eighties. Anyway, I say this because of Stacey's type-one diabetes.
As a teenage type-one myself, it is crucial for me that Stacey's diabetes is accurate. She is one of the only fictional diabetic characters in literature, and so I was really hoping to be able to identify with her. T

Until I was about twenty-seven, I was absolutely terrified I would wet the bed. Now, I have never, ever wet the bed as an adult or a child, but I figured if I ever accidentally wet the bed, I was going to end up with diabetes (or at least a lot of blood work to find out I didn't have it) so basically I trained my bladder to awaken me upon the slightest hint, which means up until I forced myself out of this habit, I was getting up every night about five and six times for next to nothing.

Perhaps unsurprisingly this book continues what is a great adaption of a rather timeless series. While I was a bit concerned by the lack of modern issues tackled in the first book, I have since read Drama by Raina Telgemeier and published by Scholastic, which was for a similar age group but completely original.

Since Scholastic and Telgemeier are obviously not afraid of tackling the more "modern" issues that children are facing, I'm much more comfortable with this book - which is an adaption of a
I don't like the overhead light in my room. It's so bright, and I much prefer the softer, yellower light of my desk lamp. That said, I couldn't read this by desk lamp. I needed as much light as I could, to take in all the beautiful colours of this book.

I haven't written a review of the original release of the book, so it's worth mentioning how much I love that Raina Telgemeier incorporated parts of Stacey's Book into the story to give more back-story and to flesh it out. The flashbacks (with

The Baby-Sitters Club: The Truth About Stacey by Raina Telgemeier is about one of the girls Stacey and how she has diabetes and the baby-sitters agency and the little game they are playing. The rest of the juicy stuff is in the book and you will find out about what it is if you read the book yourself.

I like this book a lot because it is about a girl with diabetes and she is new in town and doesn't know anyone. Then, one of the girls bring her into her group of friends and she becomes a part of

The second book of the babysitters club was really good. This book is about Stacey who has diabetes and the only people she has told is her parents and the other members of the babysitters club. This book tells how Stacey got diabetes and how her life was back in New York city when she just got diabetes. I recommend this book to people who have read the first book of the babysitters club. And also to people who like Raina Telgemeier .

Man, BSC makes awesome graphic novel fodder. I love Telgemeier. The plot in this is actually very entertaining. I'd forgotten a lot of the details--diabetes was the only thing that stuck with me--about the BSA competition. I realize that I learned a lot about what it means to be a good caretaker from these books. Lessons!!! I could binge read these.

This is one of my first graphic novel reads. This is the 2015 rerelease, and I really liked it. I was obsessed with the BSC ehen I was a kid, so it was neat to experience it in a new way. I don't know if I would have enjoyed it as much without reading the original.

Smile, Sisters, and Drama, by Raina Telgemeier. All three are Middle Grades graphic novels, the first two memoir and the last realistic fiction. They were published in 2010, 2012, and 2014 (not respectively). They have all been NY Times bestsellers and have won numerous awards.


For me, a sad part of reading a graphic novel is that it goes so quick. I enjoyed reading Smile, but man did it read fast. For me, it was just one sitting, not even an afternoon, like as long as it would take me to pe

Another well done graphic novel by Raina Telgemeier! I was obsessed with The Babysitter's Club when I was young, and I very much enjoyed revisiting the series through this revamped version. I think one of the great things is that these books definitely modernize the stories, which makes them appealing to kids in today's world.

I spent the last few days miserable, stuck in bed with a horrific virus. In between my body-shaking chills and rib-breaking coughing spells, my 12 year old brought me the first four books of the Babysitters Club -- graphic novel version -- to distract me. This could be the fever talking but I loved those books when I was 12 and I love the updated versions at 41! Super well done! Thanks Lucy for the recommendation :-)

Babysitters Club in Spanish--I had higher hopes for it because I have loved some of Raina Telgemeier's books. This one felt a little more like it was meant for young adults and just reminded me of my own babysitting days.
A bit cheesy, but deals with some other themes than boys and rivalries since the main character also suffers from diabetes and has had to move and make new friends.
A good way to practice Spanish on something lighter.

Uh... NO!

Um... this book could be MUCH better because like don't destroy Ann M Martin's books! Don't make them so comic-booky. I mean, seriously, Raina Telgemeir is cool, but, I like when things are more real, not so much comic-bookish. That's why I gave it 2, count e'm, 2 stars. Reviews by Daphne.
