I was a HUGE fan of The Baby-Sitters Club book series when I was a kid. I'm pretty sure I read all 100+ books and I had the Super Editions and the Holiday Editions and I watched the movies... obsessed. I might have even read them more than once.
Now that I'm adult, though, I would read book reviews that mentioned the books and I was often struck by that lack of an apostrophe in the "baby-sitters" part of the series title. Anyone else? It was just a twinge; just a hint that something may be off. But I wasn't sure.
One of the many book review blogs that I read near-daily because I think it's awesome is Bookshelves of Doom. Ya'll need to go check it out: great book reviews plus so much more. The author is also on Etsy (yay fellow crafter!) and she tracks a lot of banned books happenings (yay Freedom to Read defender!) This past week she had a lovely post about The Baby-Sitters and their lack of an apostrophe. She found the explanation! It's perfect.
Click through; you won't be disappointed! (C'mon, you know you want to know about that pesky apostrophe!)
