Okay, that sounds ominous, but it’s true; I got the second Babysitters Club graphic novel and decided to read it for fun before giving it to my older girls, but other than the title–The Truth About Stacey–I remember nothing about the original. I did enjoy the graphic novel, although the premise was a bit more unlikely (also a bit more sitcom-episode-y?). The rival ‘Babysitters Agency’ made for a neat plot conflict and resolution, while Stacey’s parents’ efforts to help her diabetes was a nice contrast. Both situations, however, read a little differently from a parent’s point of view! Bottom line? If you have an interest in reading it, pick it up and enjoy it; if you’re not drawn to it naturally, you probably won’t miss it.
Do with that what you will.
