An Un-Calibrated Centrifuge

My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.

Kristy's Great Idea (BSC graphic novel 1)

The Baby-Sitters Club Graphix #1: Kristy's Great Idea (Full Color Edition) - Ann M. Martin, Raina Telgemeier

I'm happy that these comics are introducing a new generation to the Baby-Sitters Club. However, I'm not a huge fan of the format. For me the best parts of the books were the descriptions at the beginning and every one of Claudia's outfits. Telgemeier tried but will never be able to capture the magic that was Claudia's outfits* (especially the themed ones... When she dressed like the Sea? That stuck with me for years).

 

*And where are all the ANKLE BOOTS AND HAIR CLIPS!?!?!? The wild earrings? The push-down socks?
