Ann M. Martin's Dear Reader Letter
Ever since I wrote Kristy’s Big Day, it’s been one of my favorite books in the Baby-sitters Club series. It was a lot of fun to write because of all the kids involved in the story. Plus, I think weddings are fun to write about! I also liked Kristy’s Big Day because it’s a family story, and it marks a change — not only in Kristy’s life, but in the series. When Kristy’s mother marries Watson, Kristy acquires a stepfather, and Karen and Andrew become important characters in the books. In fact, Kristy’s little stepsister Karen was becoming such an important character, and I enjoyed writing about her so much, that it was around this time that I began to consider giving her a series of her own. A year later, the first Baby-sitters Little Sister book, Karen's Witch, was published.
