Graphix executive editor Cassandra Pelham Fulton and Scholastic editorial director David Levithan have acquired six new graphic novel adaptations of Ann M. Martin’s bestselling middle grade prose series, The Baby-Sitters Club.

The deal is for world rights and the new acquisitions will bring the popular graphic novel series to a total of 14 books. The Baby-Sitters Club graphic novel series will begin twice-per-year publication in 2021.

Cartoonists Gabriela Epstein (photographed below by Victoria Grace Elliott) and Chan Chau (above) will alternate as adapters of four of the books. Illustrator/adaptors for the final two books will be announced at a later date.
