The Baby-Sitters Club Wiki

The Halloween Hop is a school dance at Stoneybrook Middle School. The dance was a focal point in Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls, Mary Anne's Bad-Luck Mystery, and Kristy's Mystery Admirer.


The Halloween Hop is a Halloween-themed school function. Kristy Thomas attends the dance with Alan Gray as a date for the first time after pestering her. Claudia Kishi goes with Trevor Sandbourne, but it took while for him to ask her. The boys were nervous about asking them which leads to them calling them while on sitting jobs and hanging up.

All of the girls attend for the first time in Mary Anne's Bad-Luck Mystery. Mary Anne Spier learns that her mystery necklace was sent by Cokie Mason, leading to the BSC getting revenge on her in the graveyard.

In Kristy's Mystery Admirer, Kristy attends with Bart Taylor. Bart had been sending her nice messages inviting her to go until they turned threatening. The nice letters were from him and the threatening ones ended up being fake ones from Cokie Mason.
