TUESDAY: Lunch Lady graphic novels
Three kids wonder what their lunch ladies do outside of school. They may be surprised to find out they're superheros with a secret lair (hidden behind a freezer in the school kitchen) and secret weapons (like a spork phone and a lunch tray laptop).
In the first story, Lunch Lady is suspicious of a new substitute teacher who refuses to eat cookies and is giving out an unusual amount of homework. In the second story, something seems strange when the librarians set up for the annual book fair. Is everything normal, or are they conspiring for world domination? The third book releases December 22, 2009.
These were great fun for our whole family to read together. The hero gadgets are very clever and had all of us chuckling. The illustrations are simple - black and white with some yellow shading, making them easy to follow. I can't wait to see what is next in this series (When you check out the website, be sure to listen to the theme song!)and to check out some of the author's other work.
