Karen's Tattletale is the 61st book in the Baby-Sitters Little Sister series.

Back Cover Summary[]

Karen's brother is very upset. Someone in his preschool tattled on him. Karen teases Andrew about it. So Andrew starts tattling, too — on Karen.

But Andrew's tattling goes too far. And now Karen is in big trouble.

Summary[]

Karen scoffs at her little brother Andrew's problem with Luke, a tattling classmate, and Andrew tattles on her for every little thing. The screen door at the little house needs a special part before it can be fixed, and they have to slam the door to get it to stay closed. But Karen keeps forgetting to slam it. One day Midgie wanders out of the house and it almost hit by a car. When Karen tells Lisa and Seth that she didn't put Midgie in danger, they don't believe her. As punishment, she is not allowed to sing her solo in the school jamboree. But on the day before Jamboree Night, Mr. Drucker's lawn is ruined, and he thinks Andrew's toy tractor left tracks on it, but Karen sticks up for her little brother and tells Mr. Drucker that a garbage truck ruined his lawn. Mr. Drucker believes her and apologizes to Andrew. Andrew tells Lisa the truth—he left the door open because he ran back outside to look for his best dinosaur. He apologizes to Karen and she forgives him, and their mother and stepfather punish him for a week. Lisa also apologizes to Karen for not believing her.
