    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.

    This book was absolute good! It was Kristy's big day which is her mom's wedding. But there is one problem, she has to move in 2 weeks after the wedding but Kristy still want to stay, she was worried she will felt like she is different. But then she didn't get to move!! Happily ever after the WEDDING!!

    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.

    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.

    In this graphic novel adaptation of Babysitter's Club 6, Kristy's Big Day, Kristin Amanda Thomas has to deal with her mother marrying Watson and being responsible for a lot of children at the wedding. Her solution is to call in her BFFs, the BSC! The group has some hijinks especially dealing with the obnoxious Karen Brewer. The book is a bit shallow at times but the artist really does a great job bringing the scenes and characters to life.

    This book I think is the most important book in the series. I think this because, Kristy mom finally got married! This book is SUCH A GREAT BOOK! I loved it so much and I love that this book shows how much Kristy cares about her mom getting married and how exited she is that she is the Bridesmate. So, I'm giving this book 5 STARS!

    Kristy is going to be a bridesmaid in her mom's wedding in September. When everything gets fast-tracked to June through a turn of events, the babysitter's club watches a group of fourteen while the adults prepare for the wedding. This is a heart-warming episode about Kristy coming to terms with her new family, while also helping out in some big ways.

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?

    An excellent graphic novel adaptation of Baby-sitters Club #6, "Kristy's Big Day." Very faithful to the original, down to the details, conveying the excitement and overwhelming work of the sitters' weeklong job taking care of the children of Kristy's visiting family/friends as the adults prepare for the wedding of Kristy's mother to her soon-to-be stepfather. The job is a welcome distraction for Kristy, whose anxiety about the upcoming marriage and the changes it will bring to her life is nicely An excellent graphic novel adaptation of Baby-sitters Club #6, "Kristy's Big Day." Very faithful to the original, down to the details, conveying the excitement and overwhelming work of the sitters' weeklong job taking care of the children of Kristy's visiting family/friends as the adults prepare for the wedding of Kristy's mother to her soon-to-be stepfather. The job is a welcome distraction for Kristy, whose anxiety about the upcoming marriage and the changes it will bring to her life is nicely symbolized by small moments of nighttime panic about what to get them for a wedding present. It's difficult to convey this kind of introspection in a visual medium, and Gale Galligan is effective at matching the emotional tone and pace of one of the best BSC books. The wordless wedding montage scene is particularly lovely. Changes to the original are generally minor and, I think, helpful: * Mallory is one of the club members by now, due to changes in the timeline from earlier graphic novels; this is dealt with simply by having her co-lead Kristy's sitting group, since Kristy will be distracted by wedding stuff, which I think is a good solution. (The makeup of the groups, number of children, names, etc. can remain the same.) * A line is added to explain that the rush to push the wedding up before the house sells is because of Watson's religious parents. Sure. We never meet Watson's parents in the series, and it's as good a scapegoat as any for one of my most lingering questions about this book. * Karen's explanation of the reason throwing white rose petals as the flower girl will cause her to come afoul of witch next door Morbidda Destiny is rewritten, apparently to avoid the phrase "black magic." * Draw-along level detail when Claudia teaches Kristy how to draw flowers. Hey, this medium is perfect for that!

    Another fun trip to my past, to the days in my youth when most of my friends were girls. (I'm waiting eagerly for the Logan character to appear.) The memories are why I read it, and while I'll keep getting books from this series as they come out in the new Graphix versions. This one gets four stars from me because the Kristy character suddenly cares so much about dresses and wedding things, and no one even remarks how out-of-character that seems to be for her.

The memories are why I read it, and while I'll keep getting books from this series as they come out in the new Graphix versions. This one gets four stars from me because the Kristy character suddenly cares so much about dresses and wedding things, and no one even remarks how out-of-character that seems to be for her. Maybe it's just something I don't understand. But in the other books, she seems to hate dresses, and in this one, she's overjoyed about it. My feelings are reflected on the cover, where she's wearing her baseball cap (which she isn't seen with during the wedding scene in the actual book, as she has braids and flowers and stuff). Plus, it's hard for me to handle her "big problem" of having to move into a mansion. I think young people can still enjoy these books, though they may wonder about the phones and lack of laptops. The characters work toward their goals, which are mostly just being the best baby-sitters they can be to earn some money. My favorite line from this book, the laugh-out-loud line, was when Claudia said, "That's a lot of gummy bears." It's a Happily-Ever-After (HEA), fun book. A good book for young people who are nervous about their parent getting remarried, especially about the wedding day itself. It can stand alone from the series.

    '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.

    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 short notice.

I loved the yellows, and all the "photos" of the wedding. I read most of the Little Sister books when I was younger (the stories about Karen) so when they did the wedding between her and David Michael, I could recall that issue in the Little Sister's series, and how it tied into the original. I loved those books, and feel so very nostalgic reading them in graphic form now. But at the same time it feels like all new stories. I think that the team behind these adaptions really does a great job of honoring the originals, but making them feel fresh and relevant still. I hope they continue to produce these books!

And I like this book because it is very realistic like this stuff could totally happen and could be real and not something that could be real but probably not this could actually really happen.

    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!
