The Babysitters' Club

Via Book%$#@, it's the Babysitters Club in comic book form. I'm not sure how to react to this news. One the one hand, how can these books become even more accessible to their audience than they already are? On the other hand, Ann M. Martin has proven herself to be an author of considerable talents in her books like Corner of the Universe and The Doll People, so it is worth following her new fiction.

The Babysitters Club makes up my 9-year-old's comfort reading, but I've never quite understood why. Maybe it's because I never actually liked babysitting?
