    kids won't notice that this isn't by telgemeier and will still love it. as a bsc lover and purist, though, I was a little confused by this book. for some reason they decided to combine Dawn and the Impossible Three with Hello, Mallory. both of those books have enough action and enough that is compelling that they merit their own books. the big problem with including aspects of hello, mallory in this book is that they completely ignore the jessi parts of that story.

I know that taking jessi out makes the hello, mallory story short enough to fit into this book, but it just feels like taking out a character of color in this vastly predominantly white book. edit, after meeting and chatting with gale galligan about this book... since raina telgemeier hinted at mal joining the bsc in the previous book, scholastic thought that plotline should be incorporated into this book. scholastic and galligan are working on the best way to introduce jessi in a way that is thoughtful and sensitive (and not just give her the crappy first plotline she got in the original bsc series, where basically all her neighbors were super racist to her family, because it was the 80s and writers thought that all black character storylines had to be about that). I trust they'll do a good job!

    Yay! The graphic novel adaptations of the Baby-Sitters Club series continue with a new comic artist, Gale Galligan. She has a very similar style as Telgemeier's (and worked as a production assistant on Telgemeier's DRAMA) and kids will love her adaptations, too. Put this on your radar because kids will want it! (Coming in Sept.)

    I’m so sad that I’ve finished this series for now - until the July release. I have been enjoying this series so much. The girls are responsible and deal with some serious issues. I will admit I don’t like Gale’s art quite as much as Raina’s, but this was still really cute and I can’t wait to read the next one.

    It was great to see the characters and how their individual stories are progressing, along with how their friendships are growing and changing. And just like in the other books in the series, the girls have to tackle some heavy stuff. This volume highlighted the dangers of babysitting and I appreciated how it discussed the difference between babysitting and parenting. This series doesn't get enough hype!

    If you were worried about the switch in artists for this series, I have to say that Gale Galligan makes an excellent replacement with art that is full of energy! I am still enjoying the subtle changes to the stories to make them fit in 2017. This particular volume about Dawn was an excellent story about fostering resilience and maturity in younger girls. Dawn found herself in a difficult situation with a new babysitting job, and she had to take on a lot of responsibilities that were unfair.

Dawn found herself in a difficult situation with a new babysitting job, and she had to take on a lot of responsibilities that were unfair. Not only did she rise to the occasion, she was able to stand up for herself and say that these things were not okay to an adult! I appreciated that the book dealt with the idea that adults make mistakes and are not always right without requiring Dawn to take on adult responsibilities forever. A fun, short read that's great for tweens!

Although the four previous books in the series were written and illustrated by superstar Raina Telgemeier, Gale Galligan does a great job of portraying the drama and challenges of the girls in the club, and her wonderful illustrations seem very close to those in the previous four books.

    This was my favorite of the first group of books in the original series. It was lovely to revisit it in a new form, but I much preferred the images of them on the original covers to the graphic novel versions. Still, if it's this or not reading the series at all, certainly a young person should read this. The charm is retained and my love of Dawn remains.

For some reason, the club’s founder and president, Kristy, doesn’t seem to like her that much. To make matters worse, Dawn has started to babysit for the Barrett’s. The kids themselves are wild enough – but their mom is the real problem. In this fifth installment of the Baby-Sitter’s Club graphic novel series, cartoonist Gale Galligan gracefully takes over for Raina Telgemeier. Her art style holds its own, but won’t distract or disappoint lovers of the original four books. The story itself has surprising depth. Dawn struggles with standing up for herself when the mother of her babysitting charges is neglectful to the point of danger (at one point, Dawn almost feeds one of the kids chocolate without knowing they are allergic). Her eventual ability to face this complicated conundrum is empowering and inspiring, and makes this comic appropriate for anyone from 3rd-7th grade. A must-purchase for libraries where the rest of the series is popular.

    This book was great! I thought this book was not going to be that good because this book is from a new character Dawns perspective and I thought it wouldn't be that interesting/important as the other books in the series. But, it turns out this book was also a very important book in this series and I hope they make more! So, I rate this book 5 STARS!

    I was hesitant to read this because I really, really enjoyed Raina Telgemeier's first four editions. I thought Gale Galligan did a good job, although it took a little getting used to. I really love how Mrs. Barrett was done - exactly how I pictured her down to the shiny hair. I was really thrown off while reading this because I realized this is a combination of Dawn and the Impossible Three #5 and Hello, Mallory #14. I always tie Mallory and Jessi together because they're both in #14. So it was I was hesitant to read this because I really, really enjoyed Raina Telgemeier's first four editions.

I always tie Mallory and Jessi together because they're both in #14. So it was strange reading this without Jessi in it. Why weren't books #5 and #6 (where Kristy's mom marries Watson) combined? That would have made more chronological sense and also #5 was never the best (for so many reasons) but #6 was always a favorite. They would have worked better together if books were going to be combined. Ugh. So, I don't know. I have mixed feelings on this. The art is great, but I don't really like how they added parts of another book that happened later in the series. I'm going to go with 3 stars because I'm really frustrated with how this was edited. Great job on the art though - taking over for Raina Telgemeier could not have been an easy task!

    Kris - My Novelesque Life

    RATING: 3.5 STARS (Review Not on Blog) I LOVED the Baby-Sitters Club and probably read it longer than I should have, but it always felt like visiting friends. While I have never wanted to be a baby-sitter, I loved the club idea. This graphic novel was a good trip down memory lane, but I didn't like the change up. I am glad that a new generation will get into this series and only hope they move onto the originals.

    At first I was upset because Raina didn’t write it the pictures were not what i was use to but I think Gale did a great job and brought the characters alive very well my friends thought Dawns Mom looked just like Stacy but I got use to the pictures and I hope they too. It was very interesting to her more about Dawns life and how great she’s is as a babysitter I’m in love with the babysitter club

    This series was one of my absolute favorites when I was growing up. Now that I am thinking about it though, I think I read more of the Little Sister (Karen’s story) series than the actual babysitters but regardless, Ann M. Martin was a name I knew very well. While I was re-reading these stories, details from the originals came back to me instantaneously. Truthfully, I am really hoping that they continue to adapt the series into graphic novel form.

While I was re-reading these stories, details from the originals came back to me instantaneously. Truthfully, I am really hoping that they continue to adapt the series into graphic novel form. It allows a whole new generation to enjoy these stories, much of which you could learn some valuable lessons from. I loved that each of the five books (that are out so far) were mostly in the voice of a different character, which was a lot like how the books went. It allows you to really get to know the characters as individuals, as well as the children they regularly babysit, and the club as a whole. Reina Telgemeier wrote and illustrated the first four books, and Gail Galligan did the fifth (and final one). Having Reina’s name on this series at the beginning definitely brings many kids from the younger generations in. They are already familiar with Smile, Sisters and her other work (and LOVE it) so they are more willing to pick this up than if someone else had done it. That being said, I think the transition from Reina to Gail was really smooth. Everything from the general feel of the book, to the characters and the storyline, all matched fairly seamlessly to Reina’s earlier work. I do really hope that they continue the series. I enjoyed reading them, and now I want to go back a reread the entire Babysitters Club book series, including all the specials and Little Sister spin off series…

I was obsessed with this amazing club of best friends that created a booming babysitting empire. I so wanted to be one of them until I realized that many of my friends hated babysitting. My dreams of having my own club were crushed but at least I could live vicariously through the lives of Kristy, Stacie, Claudia, Mary-Ann, and Malory. When I saw that they were bringing back the Babysitter’s Club series, I was ecstatic! I couldn't wait to get my hands on the updated version of my childhood favorites. (Sad to know that I was 30 when this all went down, but no judgment in book world!) The moment I picked up the first book in the series and saw how brightly illustrated and modern it looked, I knew my beloved series was officially back on top!  The decision to turn the Babysitter’s Club into a graphic novel series was just absolutely brilliant and revolutionary. It has been years since I have seen any of my students carrying around one of my beloved Babysitter’s Club books. Now, they all are reading them. Boys and girls alike cannot get enough of the Babysitter’s Club Graphic Novel Series! I literally cannot keep these books on my bookshelf in my classroom I absolutely recommend any book in this series. The idea to revitalize this beloved series was just amazing! Any upper elementary to an adult reader would enjoy the new Babysitter's Club Graphix series!

    I LOVED THIS! I mean, was there any chance that I wouldn't? I was super excited when I heard there was going to be a fifth BSC graphic novel, and excited to see what Gale Galligan would bring to the series. I loved her artwork, some of the exaggerated faces almost seemed anime-like to me, and I really liked how it showed excitement in the characters. I thought the art not only fit with the BSC in general, but it worked as a continuation of what Raina Telgemeier started with the first four. I al I LOVED THIS!

I also liked the story, though it's been awhile since I've read Dawn and the Impossible Three (I know, I know, I said I was going to read a BSC book a week, and made it two books in. I suck.) But I thought it was a decent adaption, I like how frenzied things were at the Barrett household. I also really like when different parts of other books are incorporated into the main story, so it was neat to see parts of Hello, Mallory included, to see Mal be a member of the club. (Though it made me want Jessi!) I really enjoyed this and am looking forward 1) to reading it again, already, and 2) seeing what book is going to be number six. (Yes, I'm already dying of anticipation for the next one!)

    I have recently finished reading Dawn and the Impossible Three by Gale Galligan. The main theme in this book is that you should not give up because something is difficult to do. In the book the author wrote how there were these three siblings that were very difficult to babysit, and Dawn, on eof the main characters in this book, try to babysit them. It is difficult at first but by the end of the book she has it all under control.

It is difficult at first but by the end of the book she has it all under control. This is much like the real world because this could be a real situation someone has to deal with. The genre of this book is a fiction graphic novel. This book mostly takes place at the "impossible three"'s house. There was a lot of description of the house that made you feel like you were actually there. The main characters in this book are Dawn, the Impossible Three, Kristy, Claudia, Mary Anne, and Stacey. Dawn, Kristy, Claudia, Mary Anne, and Stacey made and are a part of a club they made called The Babysitters Club, where they get babysitting jobs. I think that the description in this book is really good. It makes the readers feel as if they have seen the setting in real life. I really like the idea of this book and the pictures in it. It makes the story seem more like a movie. I did not really dislike anything in this book. I though it was a good book to read. I definitely would recommend this book. I think if you like graphic novels or fiction books, then you will like this book and the series it is part of.

    This was a really great book! I don't normally like to read graphic novels, but since that is a requirement for the 40 book challenge, and I've read these books before, I decided to give this a try.

If you haven't heard of the Baby-Sitters Club books, they are a series about a group of girls that start a club for babysitting (shocker.) They come to a few friendship and work challenges along the way, and invite lots of new members, (for instance, in this one, Mallory joins the club.) "Dawn and the Impossible Three" features one of the newest members of the Babysitters Club, Dawn Schaefer, and the trouble she faces trying to babysit a group of kids who have a very busy mother, and parents are divorced. When the worst possible babysitting scenario occurs, Dawn must figure out ways to help the family through their struggles, but also remember that she is not their mom. Will Dawn survive the babysitting horrors? To find out, read the book! P.S. I was a bit disappointed to find that the author had changed from the previous Babysitters Club graphic novels, from Raina Telgemeier, to Gale Galligan. I thought they looked remarkably similar, and I actually found that the two were partners and that Galligan helped create some of the other books along with Telgemeier! So if this has been your reason not to read this book, think again; it's just as good as the other ones and possibly even better!

It was awesome to see Galligan's spin on things and her new and fresh interpretations of characters (Janine, Claudia's older sister, and Geoff, Dawn's little brother, were two). This seems to adapt a few more than just the fifth novel in the original series. Mallory has a side plot here where the club treats her like crap and gives her that bogus test, but it doesn't seem to be as harsh as what Arglefumph said it was in the original novel. Still, this is a charming and serious tale of Dawn, the cool California chick (and my favorite baby-sitter), becoming a secondary mom to a family that has been affected by divorce. The three kids aren't really impossible; they're just restless because their mom is always gone and they have to juggle two schedules. I can't wait to see where Galligan takes these girls and their stories. I'm hoping for a Mallory installment next. Her story will be very endearing.
