Bookworms always hold their breath upon learning that a beloved title or series will be headed to the screen.

James Poniewozik has good news for Baby-Sitters Club fans, though: the Netflix adaptation, which releases tomorrow, is exactly what they (and other viewers) need during a pandemic.

He describes the show as “sweet but not cloying, smart but not cynical, full-hearted and funny enough to please” both viewers who read Ann M. Martin’s books and those completely unfamiliar with the saga of entrepreneurial middle-schoolers.

So maybe — just maybe — you’ll find this Fussy staffer opting to binge on a TV show instead of a book sometime in the not-so-distant future.
