Review: Kristy's Great Idea
By Ann M. Martin, Raina Telgemeier
Genre Middle Grade Graphic Novel
When Kristy and her friends decide to start a baby sitting club they make friends with Stacey and get her to join. Things are going great with the club but Stacey seems to be hiding something and Kristy, upset that her mom is dating a new man, wants to know what it is.
Guys, I was such a Baby-Sitters Club nut growing up. I loved the books and read as many as I could get my hands on. When I found out that Raina Telgemeier was doing graphic novels I almost cried. I bought the first one and had been saving it for the readathon. I'm so glad Dewy's 24 Hour Readathon decided to do a reverse readathon in July because there was no way I was holding back till October.
Bringing together these fun stories with Telgemeier's art was genius. It was so fun taking a trip down memory lane. I obviously don't remember the books, since it's been so long, but this brought back memories and all the feels and I loved it.
I'm just so thrilled that a new generation of young readers will get to enjoy these in graphic novel form. It makes my heart so happy!
