Publisher's Summary

The hit series is back, to charm and inspire another generation of baby-sitters!  

Claudia's not worried when she hears her newest baby-sitting charge, Betsy, is a great practical joker. After all, how much harm can one girl do? 

As it turns out - plenty! Claudia breaks her leg because of one of Betsy's mean jokes...and now she's talking about quitting the club. Baby-sitting might be too dangerous. The rest of the BSC decides that Betsy needs to be taught a lesson - and the joke war is on!

Comedy goes too far.

Poor Claudia. What could go wrong? A lot!. Amazing performance by Ali. She's great with voice, tone and so on. Plan to try out the other BSC books.
