Baby-sitters Club 17 Mary Anne's Bad Luck Mystery reprint cover

Jamie with Mary Anne

James "Jamie" Anderson Newton is a sitting charge of the BSC that the members often look after. In Kristy's Great Idea he is three years old, Jamie turned four in Mary Anne Saves the Day, and he turned five around the time of Logan Likes Mary Anne!. He has an infant sister named Lucy Newton and a member of the Newton Family. He is one of the club's favorite clients and lived on Bradford Court near Claudia Kishi.


In photos Jamie appears to have brown/dirty blond hair and a bowl cut.


Kristy, Mary Anne, and Claudia baby-sat for Jamie even before the BSC began. He is smart, not a quitter, but not energetic, affectionate, and hardly ever cranky. He attends nursery school.

Jamie is one of the younger players on Kristy's Krushers and tries hard, but can't hit the ball. He is at that stage where he wants to do everything himself even though he's still learning things such as buckles, buttons, and shoelaces.

Jamie gets a new bike in Kristy for President, which is red with white racing stripes with training wheels. He is afraid of falling when twigs and leaves are in his way. He takes the training wheels off his bike because he thinks they're babyish, but puts them back on after he falls. A guy named Rich in his neighborhood helped him overcome his fear.

He participated in the plastic weight-lifting event BSC Mini-Olympics. He and Lucy attended the Spring Dance at the Stoneybrook Community Center where Jamie dances with his mother.

At first, Jamie was jealous of Lucy when she was first born, but later starts to adore her. Jamie has a playground and set of swings in his backyard and plays on them sometimes. He also says "hi-hi" to everyone and loves to play G.I. Joes. (Kristy’s Great Idea).

He participates in the BSC's world records book in Kristy + Bart = ?

He was in Claudia's group when the BSC took their clients to Sudsy's Carnival in Kristy and the Mother's Day Surprise.

Jamie is part of Claudia's art classes in Claudia and the Sad Good-bye.

He attends the play group the BSC hosts in Claudia and Mean Janine.

In The Truth About Stacey, Jamie was being sat by members of the Baby-sitters Agency. Jamie hated them for not playing with him and told Stacey McGill about it. He also showed her that one of them smokes and left a burn mark in the couch. He also told that they would bring their boyfriends over. When the BSC caught him outside in the winter playing near the street, Jamie helped them tell his mom what was happening. He was overjoyed to get his old sitters back.

Jamie along with Dawn Schafer, Claudia Kishi, Haley Braddock, Jeff Schafer and Becca Ramsey got stuck on Nine O'Clock Island. He developed a fever and was rushed to the hospital when he got back to Stoneybrook. He had developed strep throat and an ear infection. Jamie was better when he attended the press conference in Baby-sitters' Island Adventure.
