If 'The Baby-Sitters Club' Came Out In 2014, The Covers Would Blow Your Mind

In the 1980's and 1990's, Ann M. Martin's beloved book series "The Baby-sitter's Club" provided young readers with fun, family-oriented narratives that tackled more serious issues as the protagonists -- a crew of middle school girls who were really into childcare -- navigated adolescence.

However, there's one problem that the members of the Club didn't have to deal with: the ever-questionable Tinder date.

In these fabulous illustrations below, blogger and artist Kate Gavino has revamped the covers of some of Martin's beloved books. But there's one catch: the sitters are now illustrated as if they were millennials, coming of age in 2014.

For example, in this one, Mallory must navigate the perils of Tinder and Snapchat.
