Best Babysitters Ever

(2) 4-6 A trio of not-particularly-capable sitters appropriates the central business model of Ann M. Martin's Baby-Sitters Club books. Much of the humor in this over-the-top send-up of lesson-laden kids' pop culture comes via the hyperbolic traits of its sometimes misguided characters. Believable friendship dynamics and motivations balance out the silliness. The source material serves as a jumping-off point, so familiarity with Martin's series isn't necessary.
