If you were a fan of the iconic book series The Baby-Sitter's Club then this is probably going to make you very happy. Author Ann M. Martin announced that the first six books in her series about a group of young girls who create their own baby-sitter's club are being re-released with their original covers!
Martin made the announcement on her Facebook page, delighting her fans and followers. The first six books in The Baby-Sitter's Club series are being sold with their original covers in a very cool collector tin that ever fan will want to add to their bookshelf.
Martin's books were a staple for many young people who came of age in the 1990’s. It inspired an entire generation of young girls to become young businesswomen and start their own baby-sitters club. Many fans of the series have passed their love of the characters on to their own children who embraced The Baby- Sitter's Club just as openly as the previous generation.
The Hollywood Reporter also recently reported that Walden Media and producer Michael De Luca are adapting Martin’s beloved series in to a half hour episodic show and shopping it around to any networks interested. All the original characters, including Kristy, Stacy, Mary Anne, and Claudia would be featured in the upcoming series.
While we haven't heard any updates about the television show, fans are still super excited about this book collection that is being offered. The retro book collection will feature the titles, Kristy's Great Idea, Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls, The Truth About Stacey, Mary Anne Saves the Day, Dawn and the Impossible Three, and Kristy's Big Day.
Scholastic, who published the series from 1986 until 2000 also posted the news of the collector tin on their Instagram page, and readers couldn't contain their excitement.
Many shared photos of their original books they still have on Martin's Facebook announcement, while others wrote that they can't wait to purchase the new collector set in the retro tin. If you're a die hard fan of the BSC and can't wait to get your hands on this collector's item, you don't have long to wait. The set is available for pre-order on Amazon for just under $37.00 with a release date of August 28th.
