The Babysitters Club Great Comeback

Scholastic is launching a comeback of Ann M. Martin’s best selling series, The Baby-Sitters Club with a prequel thrown in!

Here’s the link to the press release. Two hundred and thirteen titles?! Don’t believe me? Look here. Holy guacamole! That’s a ton of books! Interestingly, Ms. Martin wrote over 60 of the original series herself. (That’s still a ton of books.)
“David Levithan, the editorial director at Scholastic and an editor of “The Baby-Sitters Club” said the publisher decided to bring back the old series because of requests from fans who wanted a comeback. “This whole generation of girls who had grown up reading ‘The Baby-Sitters Club’ were now teachers, librarians or mothers,” Mr. Levithan said. “And at any opportunity they had, they let us know they wanted them back. We couldn’t go to a convention without having women come up to us and say, ‘You’ve got to bring these books back.’”
Hee. Hee. I LOVE it. Claudia was my favorite character. I loved her artsy style and mismatched earrings. Maybe she had more guts than me. And remember Stacey always dotted her i’s with hearts?

    I Loved the Babysitters Club! Perfect fun reading for girls. Made me want to start a babysitter club but then there would have been competition!

    Wow…B-last from the past. I LOVED those books. I started with #25 (I think that was it), when Mary Anne got Tigger. I was hooked. I wanted to start a club, but I was only eleven and I lived in the middle of no where 😀 I was a Mary Anne girl, because she was the most like me, but I Wanted to be Claudia. Beautiful artist and all 😉
