Karen's School Picture is the fifth graphic novel in the Baby-Sitters Little Sister series and is illustrated by Katy Farina. It is based on the original book Karen's School Picture and part of the Baby-Sitters Little Sister (Graphic Novels) collection.[1]


Karen has to get glasses! She doesn't want them, especially because school pictures are going to be taken soon. But she picks out some pretty pink ones and thinks she looks very grown-up.

Then Yicky Ricky at school starts calling her names, like Owl Girl and Googly Eyes. If Karen wears her glasses for the school picture, Ricky will make fun of her. If she doesn't wear them, she'll feel like she's afraid to be herself. Glasses or no glasses, that Ricky is going to get it!

Back Cover Summary[]

Karen just found out she needs glasses. With school-pictures getting taken soon she finds a good-looking one so she doesn't look babyish. When everyone is making fun of Karen, she gets furious.

Difference from Source Material[]

  • Karen only gets one pair of glasses (in the original book, she had two pairs).
  • Seth wore glasses in the original novel.
  • When telling Karen that it would make sense if she needs glasses, Watson says that he wears glasses and Lisa uses them for reading. In the original novel, Lisa wore glasses full time and Watson was the one who only needed them for reading.


  • This is the first time Ms. Colman's Class is not featured on the cover.
  • This is the first time Ricky Torres and Nancy Dawes are shown on the cover of the graphic novels.
  • The book was supposed to be released around Christmas 2021, but was pushed back to February 2022 for an unknown reason.
  • The books Hannie and Nancy reading in the cover are Mr. Wolf's Class by Aron Nels Steinke and Bunbun & Bonbon by Jess Keating.
