by Jarrett J. Krosoczka

96 pages
ISBN: 978-0-375-84684-7

Ages 7 - 10

Friends Dee, Hector, and Terrence have discovered something extraordinary about the seemingly mild-mannered lunch lady at their school: She’s a crime fighter on the side. When she isn’t dishing up gravy she’s dishing out justice. In Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute, the lunch lady discovers the science teacher’s fiendish plot to win the Teacher of the Year award. In Lunch Lady and the League of Librarians, the school and public librarians are on a quest for world domination (“Step 1: Destroy all video games”). But not if the lunch lady and the three kids have their way. And in Lunch Lady and the Author Visit Vendetta, a visiting author, still bitter about being picked last for every sport as a child, gets revenge by kidnapping gym teachers. Luckily the Lunch Lady is on his trail. Betty, the lunch room aide, is the gadget queen, with inventions like the spatu-copter and taco-vision night goggles to help the lunch lady win the day. Jarrett Krosoczka’s new graphic novel series, rendered in black, white, and yellow, inspires laughter in everything from its wild premise to clever details that extend the pleasure in countless ways.
