About The Books
“In 1986 the first Baby-sitters Club book was published, and I was then steeped in the lives of Kristy, Claudia, Mary Anne, and Stacey for the next fourteen years. Hearing of children who developed a love of reading when they discovered The Baby-sitters Club are the stories that have the greatest impact on me as a writer. When the idea of a new book came to me, stepping back into the world of Stoneybrook was like having a reunion with old friends—friends who truly haven't changed a bit.”
- Ann M. Martin
