By Alli Hoff Kosik
Baby-Sitters Club Super Special #4: Baby-Sitters Island AdventureThe Baby-Sitters Club Club’s Jack and Tanner join Alli for this history-making first episode of Manuary! In it, they break down the ridiculous circumstances that lead Dawn, Claudia, and several children (!!!) to find themselves shipwrecked in Connecticut in Book #4 of the Baby-Sitters Club Super Special series extension, Baby-Sitters Island Adventure. They also make an argument for which babysitter is objectively the worst, share their definitive list of Ann M. Martin’s best-ever novels, and explain why the Baby-Sitters Club series holds up better long-term than Sweet Valley High.Follow the Baby-Sitters Club Club on Twitter (@BSCCPodcast), and join them on Facebook, too (@The Baby-Sitters Club Club).
