The Baby-sitters Club Coming As eBooks

Kristy Thomas, Claudia Kishi and Mary Anne Spier are coming to an eReader near you. Scholastic will release the first twenty volumes of the The Baby-sitters Club series by Ann M. Martin as eBooks on December 1, 2012.

Each eBook will feature its classic cover look created by artist Hodges Soileau. Fans can also go to the official Baby-sitters Club Facebook page to access previews of the new eBooks, quizzes, polls, images and memorabilia.

Here’s more from the release: “[The series] was supposed to debut in 1986 and end in 1987, and to consist of only four titles. Instead, it ended 15 years later, with four additional related series, approximately 250 titles, spawned a TV series as well as a movie, and prompted girls around the world to start their own baby-sitters clubs. The Baby-sitters Club became the first children’s series to appear on the USA Today bestseller list and was named one of the ‘Books of the Century’ by the New York Times Book Review.”
