Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Michael Jung
Jarret J. Kroscozka's offbeat super heroine, Lunch Lady, returns in this short graphic novel that pits her against visiting author, Lewis Scribson. While Mr. Scribson seems like your average millionaire, bestselling author, Lunch Lady becomes suspicious when the school's gym teacher Coach Birkby disappears shortly after the author's visit. When an investigation reveals Mr. Scribson has been brainwashing gym teachers to work as servants in his mansion, it is up to Lunch Lady—armed with her Taco-Vision Night Goggles and Fancy Ketchup Pocket Laser—to serve up some justice to the author. Kroscozka offers many funny scenes inspired by superhero story cliches, including a silly scene where the villain reveals his motivation for kidnapping gym teachers and a fight scene where Lunch Lady battles a roomful of the villain's evil stuffed bunny dolls. That said, considering Lunch Lady fought a league of evil librarians in her first graphic novel and an evil author in her latest adventure, one has to wonder if author Kroscozka is indulging in some personal fantasies through these books. Reviewer: Michael Jung

Gr 2-4–Dee, Terrence, and Hector are looking forward to Mr. Scribson’s upcoming author visit. Suspicions soon arise, though, when the man refuses to sign Hector’s worn copy of Flippy Bunny, snatching it away from him instead. Then Coach Birkby goes missing, and Lunch Lady and Betty start to investigate. They soon learn that gym teachers from other schools the author visited have also disappeared, and they’re hot on the case. The illustrator uses a fine line of pen and ink with touches of yellow. Balloon call-outs are large and clear and work well for beginning readers and those new to the graphic-novel format.–Lisa Gieskes, CA Johnson Preparatory Academy, Columbia, SC
Kirkus Reviews
Lunch Lady and Betty serve up another action-filled adventure in the third installment of the Lunch Lady series. It is the long-awaited author-visit day for the students at Thompson Brook School, and Lewis Scribson-author of the beloved Flippy Bunny books-is scheduled to appear. When Mr. Scribson shows up, there's something not quite right about the surly, bespectacled author, and mysteriously, on the same day, Coach Birkby goes missing. It's up to Lunch Lady and the Breakfast Buddies to save the day once again. Their fight to uncover the truth reveals Scribson's secret plot, complete with an entire army of attack-Flippy Bunnies, all equipped with cute bow ties and deadly fangs. This episode dishes out more of the same rampant silliness in its trademark gray-and-yellow palette. Those who have followed the series will be pleased with its consistency, though those looking for more development may be disappointed. Although not particularly substantial, this is another helping of hijinks for Lunch Lady fans. (Graphic novel. 7-10)
