If you enjoy the Captain Underpants series, you will want to check out this crazy series featuring super hero Lunch Lady! In this episode, the Lunch Lady is in charge of collecting bake sale items. The money earned will help pay for the school’s field trip. But Holy Taco Shells! Someone has stolen all the goodies the students have brought in for the sale. Who did it? Kalowski, the janitor who hates cleaning up all the crumbs? Mrs. Calahan, the health teacher trying to keep kids from sugar shock? Brenda the bus driver who hates kids? Read this fast moving, zany graphic novel (who knew there were such things as cookie cameras?) to find out if Lunch Lady can save the day!
Parents’ Perspective: High literature this isn’t. Fun for reluctant readers – you bet! The Captain Underpants crowd should enjoy this farcical Slook at elementary school life in graphic novel format tinted in shades of yellow.
