    I'll admit, I have been very wary about this book. I've mentioned on many occasions about how I dislike when graphic novel series change the artists, and despite that I've been quite pleased with the BSC adaptations have looked. But when the cover for Kristy and the Snobs was released, I noticed right away that Chan Chau's style wasn't as rounded and cartoony as Raina Telgemeier, Gale Galligan, or Gabriela Epstein. I was worried that this book would stick out like a sore thumb. Thankfully, I I'll admit, I have been very wary about this book.

I was worried that this book would stick out like a sore thumb. Thankfully, I was wrong. (I guess they say not to judge a book by its cover for a reason, lol.) I don't even know if I'd say that Chan Chau's artwork is all that different than their predecessors. It's maybe not as rounded, but there's still that cartoonish vibe to it, complete with my favourite exaggerated wacky faces. (I always have to send Snapchats of them to my boyfriend because they make me laugh.) Truthfully, I don't think the cover really does the rest of the book justice, the artwork really flows in the story, and the cover almost seems little jarring to me. But it definitely wasn't the complete departure from the rest of the series that I was expecting! Story-wise, I thought this was an almost spot-on adaptation of the novel. I laughed, I cried (boy, did I ever cry!), I really enjoyed this. Of course I did, it's Baby-sitters Club!

    Oh, my, there is soooo much going on in this overstuffed outing: ailing pet (view spoiler)[Definitely needs an entry on doesthedogdie.com (hide spoiler)] , mean girls, pranks, chicken pox, and spoiled brats. There are 40 different sitters, siblings, parents, neighbors and children in 158 comic book pages -- as many as a Marvel Comics superhero team book! A couple chapters could have been left out or expanded into their own adaptations, and the ending works itself out a little too well, but I still Oh, my, there is soooo much going on in this overstuffed outing: ailing pet (view spoiler)[Definitely needs an entry on doesthedogdie.com (hide spoiler)] , mean girls, pranks, chicken pox, and spoiled brats.

The new artist is pretty good at bringing their own flair to the Raina Telgemeier style that kicked off the series.

    Another great BSC story! The ending had me all like 😭, but quickly made me ☺️. I love this series and can’t wait to get back into Season 2 on Netflix - seriously, if you haven’t picked up this GN series (or the original series), find copies of them and settle in for fun adventures with Kristy and the rest of the BSC ❤️

    I love this book! The kids on Kristy's new street are rude to Kristy. She would ignore them, but she needs to babysit for them. Will Kristy be able to teach them how to be less of snobs while still maintaining her status as an awesome babysitter? Find out in the graphic novel, Kristy and the Snobs. Chan Chau's art is beautiful, and helps tell a story that was great to begin with. I love this book! The kids on Kristy's new street are rude to Kristy.

    This book is great! Usually I think these graphic novels are sort of childish, but this one was really heartfelt and honestly, kind of sad.

    I really like the new illustrator for the book series. I loved this book when I read it years ago, and the graphic novel was just as good.

    Well, that was heartbreaking…but still really sweet at the same time. I loved how Stacey outsmarted the kids.

    I may have cried through every scene with Louie, just like I did when I read the novel as a child. This was another strong addition to the BSC Graphix series. A new illustrator, but still to the same spirit of the original Raina Telgemeier illustrations.

    I'm going to do my pros and cons. pros -I liked the more realistic looking art style -Some of the characters from the babysitters little sister series appeared (even though I (REALLY) hate that spin off series!) -Shannon became friends with Kristy in the end. (I guess she wasn't that much of a snob after all) -Louies death was really sad -This ending explains why in the babysitters little sister books, Karen had a dog named Shannon instead of Louie. Cons -Why was Stacy so creepy in chapter 8? -It should I'm going to do my pros and cons. pros -I liked the more realistic looking art style -Some of the characters from the babysitters little sister series appeared (even though I (REALLY) hate that spin off series!) -Shannon became friends with Kristy in the end.

Cons -Why was Stacy so creepy in chapter 8? -It should of been called "Kristy and the snob" since Shannon was the main person Kristy didn't like. -Why are do they keep switching authors? They just got a new one in the last book! -Was kinda weird that the beginning of the book didn't have the photos of the babysitters club with there names and what there jobs are. -WHAT'S WRONG WITH R.I.P? THEY LITTERLY PUT THAT ON EVERY GRAVE!

    TW: Death of a pet Shannon Kilbourne was the worst. She took the Papadakis' poodle and, after Kristy and the Papadakis children searched the neighborhood, tried to make Kristy believe she had mentioned on the phone that she had the dog. She cruelly laughed at Kristy's old collie. Apparently, she was jealous that Kristy took some of the neighborhood babysitting jobs. That does not seem like a good enough excuse to behave the way she did. Shannon did have somewhat of a redemption arc at the end th TW: Death of a pet Shannon Kilbourne was the worst.

    I can not tell you how obsessed I am with the graphic novel adaptations! This is the first one by Chan Chau and they knocked it out of the park! The story takes place shortly after Kristy's mom and Watson marry and now living in the bigger house. Kristy doesn't get along with her neighbors while trying to get the word out about the BSC. The B plot is their dog, Louis, isn't doing too good. The only downside is it is a bit shorter then the other ones but it didn't feel like it took away from the I can not tell you how obsessed I am with the graphic novel adaptations!

    Another BSC book, another new illustrator! I was surprised by the bits I remembered from reading the original in the late 80s-early 90s. Like David-Michael's Louie song. And Louie peeing on the carpet. But in many ways, it's still like reading a brand-new book. A brand new book without the internet or cell phones and where kids still get chicken pox. Nostalgic, timeless, and bound to be popular. Another BSC book, another new illustrator! I was surprised by the bits I remembered from reading the original in the late 80s-early 90s.

    I actually feel like this one is an improvement from the text material. The grief is better portrayed visually here, although I still argue Louie’s passing deserved its own book rather than being thrown into Kirsty’s adjustment to a new neighborhood. Who knows, maybe I’m just too sensitive due to my own first dog passing away last year, so I know how strong the emotions are.

    I like that the Babysitters graphic novel adaptations don't attempt to reset the stories in current times (and include cell phones, etc.). But I wish they would consider revising some of the terms that are distractingly outdated. I don't feel that children use the term snob in the way it's used here. Ditto for boy-crazy from a previous title. I like that the Babysitters graphic novel adaptations don't attempt to reset the stories in current times (and include cell phones, etc.).

Love a book that brings out emotions, but was a bit tough for my 7 year old, especially since we just put down our doggie a few years back. Also part of what i love reading this series with my daughter about, the real life situations and how to navigate.

    This book should come with a warning: have tissues nearby! I’m always leery when a new artist starts on a series I enjoy, but this was a very seamless transition! The story was well laid out, and the illustrations were great! Nice addition to the graphic novel remakes of the BSC.

    Good addition to the BSC series. It has its funny moments, some heartbreaks, and as usual, growth and maturity opportunities for the girls. The artwork seems similar to others in the series, even if the artist is new. Recommended.

    This was another good addition to the BSC graphic novel collection. I liked the focus on Kristy learning how to be part of her new neighbourhood even as she maintained connections to her group of friends from the old "hood."

    is it weird that my favorite parts were claudia popping her gum and getting it all over her face, and shannon's raised eyebrow when max delaney tells her to get him a napkin? I just really love actually seeing these scenes that I have pictured in my head over the last 30ish years. is it weird that my favorite parts were claudia popping her gum and getting it all over her face, and shannon's raised eyebrow when max delaney tells her to get him a napkin?

    OMG I could hardly believe that Louie gets put down. I cried. But I loved how Shannon and Kristy are brought together, and how Stacey tamed the Delaney's. Like Kristy said, sometimes endings are beginnings. OMG I could hardly believe that Louie gets put down. I cried.

    I love these graphic novel adaptations, but somehow I had pushed out of my mind that this is the book with poor Louie's demise. It was hard enough to read it in print, but I was actually sobbing when I saw him suffering in graphic novel form. Still, these are a lot of fun to read.

    This was so well done. Even though I've read the original dozens of times as a kid and I knew what was coming, this book still made me weep. I think the emotion was perfectly captured in the artwork. They are doing such a great job with these graphic novels! This was so well done.
