    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 wonderful and well-drawn, and it was a great adaption of what might be one of my favourite BSC books. But aside from all that, can I gush about the artwork? I love Ms Galligan's BSC. The anime-like faces, the over-exaggeration of the emotion - I love it all. Every page gave me a new visual treat, something to get excited and squeal about. It's just so damn cute, which is absolutely perfect to me. I wanted to hug this book when I finished it, that's how much I loved it. But instead I wiped my tears (the wedding scene was SO beautifully drawn!!) and joined this perfect book with the rest of the collection.

    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 story. the one very very very slight issue I have 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 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 babysitting. My dreams of having my own club were crushed but at least I could live vicariously through the lives of Kristy, Stacie, Claudia, Mary-Ann, and Malory. When I saw that they were bringing back the Babysitter’s Club series, I was ecstatic! I couldn't wait to get my hands on the updated version of my childhood favorites. (Sad to know that I was 30 when this all went down, but no judgment in book world!) The moment I picked up the first book in the series and saw how brightly illustrated and modern it looked, I knew my beloved series was officially back on top!  The decision to turn the Babysitter’s Club into a graphic novel series was just absolutely brilliant and revolutionary. It has been years since I have seen any of my students carrying around one of my beloved Babysitter’s Club books. Now, they all are reading them. Boys and girls alike cannot get enough of the Babysitter’s Club Graphic Novel Series! I literally cannot keep these books on my bookshelf in my classroom Kristy’s Big Day is the sixth book in the Graphix series of Babysitter’s Club. This one is was illustrated and adapted from Ann M. Martin’s original book by Gail Galligan. Gail Galligan is the second illustrator who has worked on the Babysitter’s Club Graphix series. The original illustrator was Raina Telgemeier. Kristy’s Big Day tells the story of Kristy and her family preparing for her mom’s marriage to Watson. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the wedding has to take place in a manner of weeks. Kristy’s mom is panicked and in desperate need of help. Enter in the Babysitter’s Club.  The Babysitter’s Club agrees to help to babysit all the kids that are in town for the wedding. How many kids are we talking about? That number would be 13 kids that our favorite babysitters need to take care of for an entire week. Naturally, with that many kids and a big wedding happening, this get chaotic! I absolutely recommend any book in this series. The idea to revitalize this beloved series was just amazing! Any upper elementary to an adult reader would enjoy the new Babysitter's Club Graphix series!

    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 be easy to handle?

    '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 bargained for, and find that the job isn't as easy as 'The Baby-Sitter's Club: Kristy's Big Day' by Gale Galligan, based on the novel by Ann M.

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 bargained for, and find that the job isn't as easy as they thought it might be. However, as can only be expected, the conflicts come to a head and the babysitters begin to find common ground with the kids that helps them all get through the week mostly unscathed. The week leading up to the wedding has a lot of fun and drama, with arguments, outings, and a variety of mix-ups. When it all comes together, though, everything that happened proves to be worth it, and Kristy finds that the wedding, and especially her mom's happiness, are really all that matters in the end. The colorful graphics and wording make the story a fast read, and the nostalgia factor since it is based on an older novel makes the book even more interesting. Those who enjoyed Ann M. Martin's original series will find themselves pulled back in, wondering just how the girls will solve their issues so the novel can end on a positive note.

    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 then too and I still do enjoy her books. I'm actuall I'm so glad these are back!

    Soobie's scared

    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 handwriting in the baby-sitting journal.

    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 been more careful about how the colours would print o This is a solid story, though it had a different flavour from the other BSC graphic novels.

    Roberta Lady with so many stories

    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.

    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.

    Alex

    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.

    Pamela

    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. . .

I am not a huge fan of graphic novels, yet it did not ruin the story for me. I would use this for my students who are not a huge fan of reading or struggle with reading. This is a perfect book for them to mainly follow the story through the pictures while engaging with in strengthening their reading abilities. I know mostly girls will love this book around middle school since that is the time that they would most likely be thinking about how to earn money.

    Galligan continues to be an excellent addition to the BSC artist club, and her Kristy's Big Day is another adorable, but also educational addition to the graphic series. It tackles some big feelings about combining families, and while I would have liked to see more emotional depth, I still think this is an excellent book for the target age bracket.

    I was skeptical when the BSC graphic novels changed hands, but Gale Galligan has done a great job with the last two. It's modernized in a way that makes sense and her illustrations bring so much life to the story. My only qualm is- where's Jessie?!

    Nikki Boisture

    The graphic novelizations of all the BSC books have been great. This might be my favorite so far. I had no problems going from Telgemeier's to Galligan's art styles. They're different, but both lend well to this format. IDK why I especially liked this one, I just really liked Kristy a whole lot.
