    I like Galligan's second entry in this series much better than her first adaptation. It probably helps that the source material is much stronger, with a big wedding and a focus on the club founder.

    There was not one thing that I didn't love about this. Not saying that I was worried, but I wondered how Gale Galligan would incorporate Mallory into the story as a Club member (since the original took place before Mal joined) but that was well-handled. (Confession: I also wondered what would happen with Dawn's handwriting, as I have vested interest in that particular subject. For the record: it looks the same and I am content.) The story was wo...

    In the latest graphic novelization of the series, Kristy's mother plans and organizes her wedding in two and a half weeks. Having planned my own wedding, I would say that is a fricking miracle.Cute problem solving in the baby sitting arena. Not sure if they are going to republish all 213 novels in this series, but so far, I am enjoying the adoptions.

    unlike the previous bsc graphic novel (Dawn and the Impossible Three) this book stuck pretty close to the original. the source material, Kristy's Big Day, translates well to the graphic format. I've read the original kristy's big day at least 20 times throughout my life, and reading this adaptation was pretty spot-on the same experience. mallory obviously wasn't in the bsc by the original kristy's big day, but she fits pretty seamlessly into this...

    Open Book Reviews by Megan Schmelzerwww.openbookreviews.orgDuring my days in middle school, I was a huge Babysitter’s Club fan! I read all the books, including the Little Sister’s series. I even owned the movie! It was absolutely terrible, but I wore that old VHS tape out! I was obsessed with this amazing club of best friends that created a booming babysitting empire.I so wanted to be one of them until I realized that many of my friends hated...

    Of all the other BSC graphic novels, I feel like this one was the most cohesive one of the six. I really enjoyed reading this - nostalgia!

    The Baby-Sitters Club, by Gale Gallian, is a fantastic book, because it is about a girl named Kristy and her mom is going to have a wedding. Kristy is in a baby sitters club with, Claudia, Mary Anne, Stacey, Dawn, and Mallory. I would recommend this book to people who are interested in wedding’s and things happening all at once, because Kristy and her group have to take care of fourteen kids and get them ready for the wedding. Will these kids b...

    'The Baby-Sitter's Club: Kristy's Big Day' by Gale Galligan, based on the novel by Ann M. Martin, is an interesting take on the original book, placing the characters in a graphic novel setting. Kristy and her five babysitter friends find themselves in the thick of Kristy's mom's wedding and all of the kids who are coming to town for it. When they offer their services to watch the fourteen kids who will be there, they get a bit more than they barg...

    So sweet! I really liked this one a lot. I thought it was so interesting to see how the girls cleverly divided up by age groups and assigned everyone a "leader." I loved that they did different activities each day and that the wedding was a background thing for most of the story. Planning my own wedding at the moment, I can appreciate and relate to Kristy's mom and the stress she must have been feeling having to change her entire plan on such sho...

    I'm so glad these are back! I used to read the original 4 graphic novels all the time when I was younger and they were some of my favorites. I had them before they added color which I prefer. While I'm not a big fan of the new artist's style it's not too drastically different. The newer ones are okay, it's just nice revisiting a childhood favorite. I'd recommend it to any child or nostalgic teen (lol). Ann M. Martin was my favorite author back th...

    Me vs loving Kristy Thomas with my entire heart. I'm not really sure how to review the 6th book in a graphic novel series I've been reading for 12 years but I guess I can try. This was HIGHLY anticipated by me because the babysitters club has owned my heart since I was 6 years old, so anytime I get new content I'm over the moon and this didn't disappoint!! Gale Galligan's art style is so much more fitting for this 2nd wave of books and feels more...

    Ok, this is like a walk on memory lane... And what's surprising is that I still remember what I read more than twenty years ago. I'm not sure I like Gale Galligan's art. It's nice and fluffy but there's something missing. I also get the first volumes - the ones drawn by Raina Telgemeier - in black and white. And the more I read, the more I think that Telgemeier's and Gallivan's art would be better in black and white.As usual, I love the different...

    This is a solid story, though it had a different flavour from the other BSC graphic novels. Fun to have a different pressure dictate the babysitting challenges (in this case, a last-minute wedding). Docked a star for how yellow Claudia and her grandma were coloured. Like, they're just yellow in some panels. The BSC graphix have a beautiful colour palette and that's a real nice yellow for someone's shirt, just not their skin. Wish Galligan had bee...

    I seriously did not like this book. I don't know what the hell children are reading these days. I don't know if it is appropriate for people of a young age.,As for the book I didn't get it myself. What are they going to learn from this book anyway? I've read a lot of childrens books and I understood the relationship between them and books. I should know. I was a kid once. This book does not have any teaching at all.

    I loved The Babysitters Club, so I am glad to see it reincarnated as a graphic novel series. I do miss having Raina Telgemeier as the author of the books, but Gale Gallignan is good, too. However, in Kristy's Big Day, some parts of the story were glossed over. It was like the author was worried about the book being too long, but didn't want to cut parts out. So instead, they were just two or three panels. Over all, the rest was good, and I enjoy ...

    Really great adaptation! This was my first BSC book ever, lo those many decades ago, and it brought back a ton of memories. Karen is drawn so adorably in this, and perfectly devilishly in some scenes. I love how Mallory was woven in seamlessly (though without much speech, ha), since she wasn't in the original novel, and there was a great amount of inclusive and diverse casting. Gale Galligan really was the perfect one to step in after Raina.

    These BSC graphic novels are just SO well done. I actually think I prefer Gale's drawing of the girls over Raina's, but both authors do an absolutely amazing job bringing these characters to life. One big question remains though - WHERE IS JESSI? Mallory is already in the club as of the last book, but there's still no mention of Jessi and it's weird. I really, really hope there will be more of these to come.

    I think this artist did a much better job this time around verses Dawn and the Impossible Three. I had my reservations with that one, because, well, RAINA TELGEMEIER did the first four! How can anyone compare? But Galligan definitely did Book 6 justice! So cute, and the wedding scenes were beautiful.

    These BSC graphic novels continue to be just adorable. Gale Galligan does a wonderful job of updating the plot for modern times while still keeping the heart of the story. She took a book in which lots of things are happening with different characters at once and figured out how to portray it well. My only mino complaint is that Nannie's car isn't pink. . .
