A shadow lurks in the wings while Jessi Ramsey dances for her life on stage... Jack and Tanner receive a mysterious smuggled message from an unexpected source... And the baby-sitters have a pet show! Really just a stunning amount of content in this book. Enough to make you wonder whether some nefarious entity behind the scenes might just be pushing Ann M. Martin a little bit too hard.

Ho Ho Ho! And welcome to a very special holidays episode of the Baby-Sitters Club Club. Ole’ Saint Ann squeezed down the chimney to give Baby Nation the gift of the Baby-Sitters Club Secret Santa book, which Jack and Tanner read and discuss this week, just in time for Christmas. Then the boys find some holiday joy in their hearts and give some Secret Santa gifts to one another as well! In fact, Jack WANDERS right into Tanner’s trap when he gets his very special gift on this bonus episode.
Thanks, as always, to original baby boy Scott Lamb for the intro music!
Love is dead, and Mary-Anne and Logan are the two who killed it. That’s right baby nation, your second-favorite duo is no more (your first-favorite being Jack and Tanner, of course)and a new life is coming to Stoneybrook, which means an old life must be extinguished. Nice knowing you, Stacey! Also, Saint Martin blesses us with a new rule mechanic for Wandering Frog People that should make the game a little more exciting in the coming weeks.
Claudia Kishi may or may not have cheated on a test, but that's not the only crime against humanity we're experiencing this week! Tanner learned a "fun" new kind of Pig-Latin from the Pike children, and Jack literally can. not. shut. up. about what "Theory of Justice" Ann M. Martin subscribes to, so both of these boys are up before the court right alongside cheatin' Claudia, asking that you find it in your deep and expansive hearts to forgive them.
