theyve desecralized my babysittersclub ! i was recently in popular for like the first time in many months and saw this awful new version ! a « graphic novel » they call it, and a ridiculous $17+, or i wouldve bought it really, just to see what the hell it is. now it looks like a storybook written by singaporean authors i.e. characters with names like sam seng and fat simone): and claudia has a pink streak in her hair ! the conservative kishis will never let claudia don a ridiculous neon handful of hair- and what, claudia lynn kishi will never wear a yellow tank and brown pedal pushers and striped scarf and socks with chucks ! where be the wild papier-mache palm tree necklaces, maroon leggings, ballet slippers, an oversized yellow shirt and belt woven by six different types of fabric and decorated with ceramic beads ? and WHY is the skin brown, why. staceyys not all Big Apple Sophisticated like shes supposed to beeee (and she looks like she has a tummy omg shes a diabetic not a glut !). and is it just me or does maryanne look more asian than claudia ? kristys alright, but what can go wrong with sweatshirts and jeans anyhow. im disappointed in you, Graphic Novelist ! and youu, ann m martin, for allowing this to happen.
slash sad. im going to sniff and rub my face against my old library-smelling babysitters paperbacks for comfort.
