Detailed and moving. Cooney does a great job of getting inside the heads of five six characters via their diaries, an assignment for English class.

One of the earliest ghostwritten books, when they were still pretty good. Lisa finds a special Thanksgiving project in her favourite horse, Pepper.

Wonderful new graphic interpretation of the first book in Ann M. Martin's The Baby-Sitters Club series. Artist Raina Telgemeier remains faithful to the original text (much more so than, say, most film adaptors) and adds her own touches, Claudia's streaked bangs being just one example! Clean, easy-to-follow art style that substitutes pictures for words wherever possible.

Review Date: 10/26/2006


Wonderful second graphic novel in the Baby-Sitters Club series, illustrated by cartoonist Raina Telgemeier. As she did in the first graphic novel, Telgemeier captures the spirit of four lively, determined adolescent girls while updating the original 80s material (for example, fake phone numbers no longer begin with "KL5"). Note that the second book in the original series, Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls, will NOT be published as a graphic novel; Scholastic felt that the plot was weaker than either Claudia and Mean Janine or Claudia and the New Girl, and as such, Mary Anne Saves the Day will be the next book published in the graphic novel series.

A nice look at each girl's separate backstory, in the vein of a mini-autobiography. Lisa, Stevie, and Carole each relate one of their experiences that has (almost) nothing to do with horses.

The usual lesson, wrapped up in the cheerful cartoon package of the Berenstain Bears. The moral here is a little more overt than in some of the other books, but a useful story nonetheless.

This was, in my opinion, the weakest point of the series. Necessary for continuity and finding out what happens, but not the best of the four books.

An excellent installment of the revised Bobbsey Twins series. First published at the turn of the century, the Bobbsey Twins got a makeover in the 1950s and 1960s when Stratmeyer remarked them as adventure/mystery stories rather than episodic tales. In this book, the twins and their cousin Harry find a calf, go to an auction, search for a missing bull, make some new friends, raise money for charity, and catch some thieves. Suitable for ages 5-10.
