Mary Anne Saves The Day (MG)
Mary Anne Saves The Day. Raina Telgemeier and Ann M. Martin. 2007. Scholastic. 158 pages.
The Babysitter's Club (BSC) is in BIG, BIG trouble in this third graphic novel of the series. Can "shy" and "babyish" Mary Anne save the day? Can this club survive long enough for Mary Anne's curfew to be extended to 10PM? Will she ever be able to take down the Mother Goose posters in her room? Will those braids ever go? Find out the answers to these pressing questions (and more) in Mary Anne Saves the Day.
Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia, and Stacey are the founding members of the Baby Sitter's Club. But conflicts are arising. Some people (cough, cough) are being accused of being job-hogs. While others are being called out for being bossy. Where does Mary Anne fit into all of this? I had forgotten that Mary Anne can have quite the temper when provoked. I remembered her as more of the peace-maker.
Did you grow up reading The Baby Sitter's Club? Did you read them all? Or just a few? Do you have a favorite book?
