#GNCelebration Week #2 The Baby Sitters Club in Graphic Form!!!
As we get into week two, I would like to shout out Raina Telgemeier's graphic adaptation of Ann M. Martin's The Baby Sitters Club. More particularity Claudia and the Mean Janine. This was always my favorite BSC book, because my name is Janine. I know, but that's all it took when I was a kid. For the record, I am NOTHING like Claudia's sister Janine. I am so thrilled that The BSC is now in graphic form. I think it totally reinvents itself to a whole new generation of readers as well as to graphic novel fans. I am eagerly awaiting the release of every single one. I also really appreciate the black and white pictures, it has that traditional comic appeal. If you are a BSC fan and have not read this adaptation yet, please do so. Also, if you are just a fan of graphic novels in general or Raina's, please read it.
