Description from the Publisher:
Kristy's Great Idea
When Kristy Thomas has a great idea to form a BABYSITTERS CLUB - a chance to earn money and spend time with her friends - she has no idea how much the club will change everything.
Crank calls, uncontrollable toddlers, wild pets, untruthful clients . . . running a business is hard work! Kristy and her co-founders, Mary Anne, Claudia, and Stacey, are sure they can handle anything. But only if they stick together . . .
Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls
When Kristy, Claudia, Mary Anne and Stacey hear about the Phantom Caller, a jewel thief who's been breaking into nearby homes, they come up with a plan to keep their kids safe.
But then Claudia and the other girls start receiving creepy phone calls and they start to get really spooked. Will the mystery caller scare off the BSC?
The Truth About Stacey
The truth about Stacey is that she has diabetes, a fact she keeps secret from everyone except her new friends in the Babysitters Club.
But Stacey's condition causes a lot of problems, and she has to miss a lot of BSC meetings. Can she find a solution before her new friends get sick of her disease?
Mary Anne Saves the Day
Mary Anne has never been a leader of the BSC. So when a fight breaks out among the club's four members, Mary Anne feels a little lost, unable to depend on Kristy, Stacey, or Claudia anymore.
Sitting by herself in the cafeteria is bad enough; when Mary Anne has to baby sit a sick child without any help from the club, she knows someone has to take action. It's time for Mary Anne to step in and save the day!
Dawn and the Impossible Three
As the newest member of the BSC, Dawn is eager to prove herself. So when a big job comes along, she jumps at the chance to show everyone what she's made of.
The Barretts are even more challenging than Dawn expected. The house is a mess, Mrs. Barrett is unreliable, and the kids are out of control. Dawn knows she's a great baby-sitter, but this is impossible! She only knows one thing for sure - a member of the BSC never gives up!
Kristy's Big Day
Kristy's mum is getting married, and everyone is coming to town to help, bringing their kids with them. Fourteen kids! Kristy is sure she and Stacey, Claudia, Mary Anne and Dawn can handle it - they're professional babysitters, after all, and Kristy's mum has offered them a lot of money to take on such a big job.
But will a week of changing diapers, stopping fights, solving mix-ups, and keeping fourteen children entertained prove to be too much for the BSC? Can they keep things under control for Kristy's big day?
