Review - Ann M. Martin: The Story of the Author of The Baby-sitters Club

*Note: 1/20/20 - This was my very first post and you can clearly tell I had no clue how to write a blog entry, let alone a a review. I no longer own this biography or any of The Babysitter Club books. Don't get me wrong, these are great books for children but my reading tastes have changed over the years so I donated all the books to Salvation Army.


I was lucky to find this out-of-print book at a thrift store. This is a wonderful autobiography that I would recommend to all Ann Martin fans and to all children book writers.

From Ann Martin’s early days in diapers to her teaching days. You will learn how she became an editor at a publishing house and eventually became a bestselling children book authors.

After publishing her first book “Bummer Summer” and several other books, Ann left her editorial job to write full time. She takes odd writing jobs, like writing books for other series and novelizations. Eventually she was offered to write a new series called “The Baby-sitter Club" and it changed her life forever.

Every aspiring children book author needs to read this. It’s inspirational!
