Gr 7 Up–These babysitters make sure the kids are in bed on time and manage to hunt demons. When weird flyers link a mysterious rock band to the scene of a crime, their Sitter senses begin tingling. Fueled by one-liners and 1990s nostalgia, this series is not to be taken seriously, but it is a lot of fun. The final book in “The Babysitters Coven” is still heavy on the exposition, getting into the back story of Red Magic and the two main families. One of the major plotlines in this series remains unfinished, and despite its other charms readers may end up less than satisfied. Sitters have a variety of backgrounds and ethnicities.
VERDICT It was fun while it lasted, but ultimately not the most gratifying ride.
