The Baby-sitters' Christmas Chiller has been my favorite super special for a LONG time. It's over the top and I am here for it. There's good, clean, babysitting fun, a mysterious woman with amnesia, and an assortment of criminal activity! What more could you ask for in a book?!

Nothing at all, my friends. Nothing at all.

Big dead pancakes.

five stars for pure insanity. none of the babysitters club mysteries are great, & the super mysteries are generally even worse, but this is the worst of the worst in terms of crazy-ass plots. it's also the last of the super mysteries. i am wondering if maybe the ghostwriter just threw all the unused mystery plots the scholastic editors had brainstormed into one book because they knew the mysteries were being phased out?

there are three big plots here, none of which are really connected at

in this extravagantly preposterous super mystery by ghostwriter Nola Thacker, the babysitters deal with three separate mysteries:
1. leaving her church christmas pageant play rehearsal, mal finds a 9 months pregnant woman with amnesia and tries to help her. she has two distinguishing items: a ring that looks handmade and a sweater from a small maternity boutique based in the san francisco bay area. mal tracks down the maternity boutique, who dont know the woman. then mal asks if there are local

If any Baby-sitters Club book could be described as Lynchian, it's this one. Dig beneath the surface of an ordinary suburban Christmas to find a mysterious woman with amnesia, a deranged gardener, a wall of blood, a man whose hair has suddenly turned white (really).

I'm not saying this is well-executed, with the suspense and originality and startling evocativeness of a Twin Peaks or a Mulholland Drive; it is still a Baby-sitters Club Super Mystery, the worst kind of Baby-sitters Club book, with

Something outlandish and slightly creepy is happening to the Babysitters Club. The whole gang is finally together, including Dawn and this quickly changes when Stacey and Claudia spend the majority of the book in the city. The book contains three main plots. Mallory and Jessi are dealing with a woman who has amnesia and the horrors of being alone on Christmas without knowing who you are...and the worst part is that the woman is pregnant and is almost due! Kristy, Mary Anne, Dawn, Abby, etc are ...more

Weird as all get out, this book has all the insanity you'd expect of a BSC mystery. The three mysteries themselves were interesting enough, but I found myself particularly intrigued by Stacey and Claudia's chapters. The resolution to their mystery was pretty brilliant, if I do say so myself, and was the highlight of the book for me.

The other two mysteries are nothing to write home about - standard middle-grade mystery fare in the form of amnesiac strangers and repeated burglaries - but they were

A little over a year since I started my re-read/new read of selected "Baby-Sitters Club" novels, and I'm discovering subseries I never knew existed.

Like the Super Mystery series.

I was looking for some "Christmas" books to read (and review for my blog), and knew there was one "Baby-Sitters Club" novel that came out after I stopped reading the series in 1995. Turns out there was more than one. I wound up buying three, including this one.

The Super Mystery series was published between June 1995 and

BSC RE-READ #1:
this was equal measures bonkers and brilliant. did we see any of it coming? maybe. did THEY see it coming? nope. re-reading as an adult means dealing with the nasty realisation, that I would've hated dealing with any of these kids so I feel you Sergeant Tang and your wry smiles. it continues to surprise me how young they all are, and how gloriously old they all seemed back then.

some favourites
- that we're seeing Stacey and Claudia's accelerated transitions into adulthood, but

What the hell was this hot mess!? There wasn't even an attempt at one cohesive story, just a lot of wtf all all over the place.

I'm so glad I'm done with the mysteries.

Great Book

I liked it. It was fun to read. It was also full of suspense. Once again, it was a wonderful Baby-Sitters Club book!

This is completely fucking ludicrous, but I had a fun time reading it.

It's certainly no Babysitters Beware, I'll tell you that. Maybe the lack of fond memories made this one subpar for me. I don't think I ever read this one as a child.

Review from The Book Babe.

I love Ann M. Martin. She is definitely one of my favorite authors. I still look forward to her new books that come out as an adult. This is my first Baby-Sitters Club mystery and oh man, it was good!

This book is basically three mysteries in one. First, there's a series of break-ins in Kristy's neighborhood. Second, Mallory finds a woman wandering around Elm Street who can't remember who she is or where she came from. Third, Stacy and Claudia are in New York City for

Fantastic books for young girls getting into reading!! Great stories about friendship and life lessons. The characters deal with all sorts of situations and often find responsible solutions to problems.

I loved this series growing up and wanted to start my own babysitting business with friends. Great lessons in entrepreneurship for tweens.

The books may be dated with out references to modern technology but the story stands and lessons are still relevant.

Awesome books that girls will love! And the

This book is kind of like the Pretty Little Secrets by Sara Shepard wee sibling.
It's not enough Christmassy for me to love it. And I felt the three mysterious storylines are too simple overall.
But a nice reading, in a nutshell.

This book is all kinds of insane, and it's fabulous. I hadn't reread it in awhile, so I thought now would be the perfect time to curl up with it and get in the Christmas spirit.

5 stars simply for being ridiculously awesome.

I can't give these books anything but 5 stars. Anything less would be like saying I don't love my family. Total childhood throwback.
