Whatever comes up -- cranky toddlers, huge dogs, scary neighbours, prank calls -- you can count on them to save the day.

But no matter what, the BSC have what they need most: friendship. Raina Telgemeier, using the signature style featured in her acclaimed graphic novels Smile and Sisters, perfectly captures all the drama and humour of the original novel!
