Lunch Lady and the Breakfast Bunch are on a school field trip to a famous art museum. But while Lunch Lady is busy taking in all the culture, the kids have caught onto something strange—some of the artwork looks suspiciously fake! Now Dee, Hector, and Terrence are determined to get to the bottom of this conspiracy, but Lunch Lady is too awed to catch on. Will she snap out of it and come to the rescue? Or will the Breakfast Bunch have to handle this operation alone? ~Publisher’s Comments
Jarrett J. Krosoczka’s Lunch Lady graphic novel series is a great find for chapter book readers and fans of the color yellow. The premise is unusual, a lunch lady as a superhero with food/cooking themed weapons and gadgets. It is good and silly fun. Oh, and, um, Parents–I’m sure there is a message in there somewhere.
The latest installment, book six, Lunch Lady and the Field Trip Fiasco is fun. I didn’t like it as much as some of the previous ones, but it hardly disappoints. The crime-busting, action-packed opener; the creative gadgetry; and the original storyline are all there–as is the yellow with the black, white, and gray.
Below is from Lunch Lady and the League of Librarians (which is hysterical), but it should give you a good idea of what you are in for.
