Comments:

I love the BSC books with a passion that can never diminish, despite the passing years. These graphic novel adaptations by Raina Telgemieir (woderfully talented author and illustrator of the bestselling Smile) perfectly capture the oh so wonderful essence of BSC.

Great for lovers of AND newcomers to the series that every 9+ year old girl loves for showing real girls, in real (and widely varied) familial situations, with real (and again widely varied!) personalities and talents, doing real work, and having real fun together!
