Overall Book Review:

The first two books in the Lunch Lady series, Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute and Lunch Lady and the League of Librarians have been combined in this new release and if you haven’t already fallen in love with this series, you will. With an unlikely superhero and her sidekick who use hilarious kitchen gadgets and food-inspired threats you’ll be laughing through both stories. If that’s not enough to get you interested, maybe the villains and their funny agendas will grab your interest. Author Jarrett J. Krosoczka not only provides an excellent plot but also gives us fantastic and humorous illustrations that fit perfectly with the story. The other great thing is that there is clearly more mischief on the menu for the next books for you to enjoy. Reluctant readers and graphic novel fans will LOVE this series.

About the Reviewer

I love being able to help busy parents who just don’t have the time to pre-screen all their children’s books and know how much I appreciate it as my sons have gotten older. I feel very blessed that my amazing husband makes it possible for me to be a stay-at-home mother to four amazing boys. When not reading or enjoying time with my family, I like baking, especially trying new recipes, and the occasional sewing project.
