Publisher's Summary

In the most exciting news since we first learned of Kristy Thomas’ great idea to start the Baby-Sitters Club, the book series is now available only from Audible as an audio experience with Elle Fanning, the multi-talented actress and fan of BSC, performing the first five stories. 

The hit series returns to charm and inspire another generation of baby-sitters! 

Kristy, Claudia, Mary Anne, and Stacey try to be prepared for anything when they baby-sit. So when they hear about the Phantom Caller, a jewel thief who's been breaking into nearby homes, they come up with a plan to keep their kids safe. 

But when Claudia and the other girls start receiving creepy phone calls while they're out on jobs, they start to get really spooked. Will the mystery caller scare off the BSC? 

The best friends you'll ever have - with classic BSC covers and a letter from Ann M. Martin!

A good Halloween listen.

Claudia was my favorite member of the BSC. I identified with her the most as a girl because we both loved art, junk food, and were not very good spellers. 
This was a fun and nostalgic listen for October.  It is set around Halloween and any of the scenes where the girls were baby sitting and the house was making noises were creepy-comedic. 
The end though, I didn't like (and I had forgotten) that the caller was a boy from school who liked Kristy. It was a bad lesson for to reward his bad behavior. On some level you have to excuse the ending because it was written in 1986. It would never be written that way today because now we know better, or at least we should.  
I did love how the girls made a plan for what to do if the actual burglar were to attack while they were baby-sitting, and I did love how smart Claudia was at the end when calling the police. 
4 out of 5 Creepy House Noises.

A good ol' mystery

Nice break from formula. Love mystery novels. The only issue with this one was it jumped from POV to POV, so, it wasn't easy figuring out who was who, but, a fine book all around.

I love revisiting a childhood favorite.

I loved the Babysitters Club Series growing up. This book was a nice and spooky mystery. It was a lot of fun revisiting this childhood favorite. It was a great performance and an easy listen. I highly recommend this audiobook and series!

More than nostalgia...

I decided to give The Babysitters Club books a listen primarily for the nostalgia factor, and they definitely deliver on that front, but they’re surprisingly enjoyable in their own right too. I loved these stories as a pre-teen and young teenager but haven’t read them in well over a decade. They are definitely made for the 8-12 age range but the characters are surprisingly well developed and the plots, while simple, are engaging. I’ve found Kristy’s Great Idea and Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls to be funny, lighthearted and even heartwarming to a certain extent. Elle Fanning does a nice job narrating. It took me a while to adjust to her voice, rather than hearing my own in my head, but ultimately the pace, tone, and inflections are all on target. I would 100% recommend these audio books to anyone who enjoyed the stories as a child, or to anyone aged 8-12 who likes audio books about friendship and mystery and school drama, or to adults looking for quick, lighthearted, family friendly stories.
