    When I was in Kindergarten, my dad read me Karen's Witch at bedtime. The first night we read the book, I told my mom that it was a little scary but I liked it. Thus began my lifelong love of the Baby-Sitters Club and the Baby-Sitters Little Sister books. I enjoy reading the Baby-Sitters Club graphic novels and was excited to hear that the Baby-Sitters Little Sister books were also being adapted into graphic novels.

This book did not disappoint — 3.5 stars.I loved the art in this book. It was a nice mix between Raina Telgemeier's and Gale Galligan's art styles. My favorite panel was the close-up shot of Karen and Watson reuniting after two weeks. Katy Farina did a great job at visually depicting the love between a father and daughter. Karen is such a daddy's girl.It bothered me out that Karen was on a witch hunt for her neighbor Mrs. Porter. Karen used anything Mrs. Porter did (e.g., talking to her cat Midnight about a 12 o'clock meeting) as proof that she was a witch. Then she went into Mrs. Porter's house and interrupted her meeting to accuse her and her friends of being witches. She should have been punished more severely than she was. It should not matter that Karen thought she was doing the right thing.

    E ARC provided by Edelweiss PlusWhen Karen and her brother go to spend the weekend with her father and his new family (that includes The Baby-sitters Kristy), Karen becomes obsessed with the idea that the older neighbor lady (who wears long dresses and shawls and spends a lot of time in her garden) is actually a witch. She refers to the woman as Morbida Destiny, and is determined to save the neighborhood from her evil influence. Along with Hanni, she spies on the neighbor, makes up spells to E ARC provided by Edelweiss PlusWhen Karen and her brother go to spend the weekend with her father and his new family (that includes The Baby-sitters Kristy), Karen becomes obsessed with the idea that the older neighbor lady (who wears long dresses and shawls and spends a lot of time in her garden) is actually a witch. She refers to the woman as Morbida Destiny, and is determined to save the neighborhood from her evil influence. Along with Hanni, she spies on the neighbor, makes up spells to ward her off, and eventually crashes a "witches' meeting" at her house-- that ends up being a gardening club meeting that her grandmother is also attending. Karen learns a valuable lesson about judging someone based only on appearance. Strengths: Farina's illustrations are similar enough to Telgemeiers that readers may not realize the change in authors, but distinctive enough that discerning one will. The colors and style are attractive. I particularly liked Karen and Kristy's close relationship. The cats were super cute, even if cats are plotting to kill us all!Weaknesses: Karen's obsession with the witch makes this better for younger readers, but who knows? Maybe this series can bring back my name as one that is not for grandmothers!What I really think: I am debating buying this one. On the one hand, these graphic novels do well, but on the other, middle school students are going to KNOW the neighbor is not a witch. Will they care? Probably not. This is in full color, and I recently had a student complain about the older graphic novels that were in black and white, so I might buy this.

    I am a big fan of the Babysitters Club graphic novel series, so I was so excited to read this book. This was a cute story with great artwork! It is definitely written for a younger audience, so I'm not quite sure fans of The Babysitters Club books will flock to this series. That being said, I enjoyed reading about Kristi's little step-sister, Karen and her over active imagination. Karen's parents are divorced and she stays with her father in the "big house" every other weekend.

That being said, I enjoyed reading about Kristi's little step-sister, Karen and her over active imagination. Karen's parents are divorced and she stays with her father in the "big house" every other weekend. There are a set of rules that she must follow, one of which is "no spying." Of course, Karen has a very hard time following this rule, especially when she is convinced that their neighbor, Mrs. Porter is a witch! Even though Kristi and other family member repeatedly tell her that there is no such thing as witches, Karen is not convinced, especially after she sees Mrs. Porter fly away on her broom one night! What follows is a series of funny misunderstandings leading up to Karen accusing Mrs. Porter of being a witch during her garden club meeting, a club which her own grandmother is a member of! This is a cute graphic novel that younger kids will enjoy reading! I look forward to reading more books in this series.

    {My thoughts} – It is absolutely important for you to have read the other Baby Sitter Club Graphic Novels and or books to understand the characters in this book. Karen is Kristy’s younger Step-sister and she has one entertaining imagination. She has it in her head that their next door neighbor Mrs. Porter is a witch. She believes this so much so that she has scared herself and isn’t able to sleep well at night.

Another day she swears she learned about a witch meeting that is suppose to take place at Mrs. Porter’s house. She takes everything she hears to a whole different level within her imagination.I can see how a child can have such an imagination once they get certain things caught in their heads. It was fun to read where the story went. I look forward to reading more books in this series in the future.

    Karen can't stop spying on her neighbor, Mrs. Porter, even though it's against the rules, because she's convinced the older woman is a witch and it's up to Karen to save the neighborhood. The art is great, and matches the BSC books well. Andrew is adorable with his Yups. I love the Thomas-Brewer-Engle families and how they work together. I used to read the Little Sister books, and Karen never quite bugged me as much as she did here. (I suspect she would if I reread.)

Karen's depictions of wild hair and flowing dresses as meaning a witch and not a hippie never got pushed back on, and it left a bad taste in my mouth. Some things can get left back in the 80s.

    More books in the very popular Baby-Sitters Club graphic novel series. These read younger, so the 4-5th graders may not like the book. I thought the artwork was good, right on track for the series, even though there is a different artist. I thought the story was immature and silly. Karen needed to have more punishment for judging someone by their appearance and bothering them. I am sure it will be popular.

    Karen Brewer has a very wild girl with a very wild imagination. But when she and her imagination run wild thinking that her next door neighbor, Mrs. Porter, is actually a witch named Morbidda Destiny, she might get in big trouble for spying and doing something very naughty. Karen even drags her friend Hannie, into all of this! Will Karen ever learn that you can't judge a book by its cover, or will she grow up thinking that she knows a witch that lived next door to her fathers house?

    Cute graphic novel of the Babysitters Club stories. And it's nice how the illustrations reflect the other graphic novel series. The story is cohesive and doesn't leave gaps that assume you've read the book.My only issue was how the parents handled the "no spying." They just tell her to stop but little kids have big imaginations and there would have been a better way to deal with that whole situation.

    A simple story based around Karen's conviction her next door neighbor is a witch. Karen is supposed to be six, but acts and speaks older. I'm not sure who the target audience is for the book. Presumably this spinoff series happened because of the popularity of the Babysitters Club graphic novels, but it feels a little young for that audience.

    I remember being so mad at the chapter book version of this when I was a kid, because the witch wasn’t real. I was promised witches! Instead I got a lesson about not letting your imagination run away with you, which I was Not Here For.As an adult, I had a different reaction - the plot still doesn’t grab me AND Karen’s kind of a brat :p

    Interesting and intriguing I enjoyed the parts when you got intrigued. I’m in 5th grade so it’s a little bit to childish for me so that’s why it’s 4 stars not 5. I would recommend this book to weak readers. 3rd grade and under. I chose this rating because it’s just not the right book for me. Besides that it was very interesting and funny.

    I happened to spy this in the Scholastic booth during my wanderings at ALAAC. The Babysitters Club GNs are wildly popular at my school and I was so happy to have stumbled upon this new spin-off. It reads a tad young for my crew of middle schoolers, but my fans will think it adorable. Note to self to give my elementary school colleague a heads up too.

She is much more entertaining than any of the main characters from the babysitter's club books that this book is a spin-off of. I also really loved the illustrations and the story was pretty good as well. I look forward to the next book in this series.

    I guess I should've guessed that the "little sister" books were going to be even more juvenile-oriented, but dang, this reads young. Like, second grade young. It's fine but don't give this to middle-graders because they're going to roll their eyes right out of their heads.
