TUESDAY: Lunch Lady and the Author Visit Vendetta

This is the latest in this graphic novel series. This story picks up with Hector, Terrence and Dee coping with bullies and encouraging Terrence to try out for soccer. The Lunch Lady and Betty are watching for suspicious behavior. After a famous author visits the school, the gym teacher, Coach Birkby, disappears. The Lunch Lady and Betty are on the case which leads them to the author's mansion. The kids are there, too, as Dee is determined to get Hector's book signed by the cranky author.

Fighting bunnies are involved - what is not to love? This is a fun book in a fun graphic novel series. It reminds me of Babymouse, but without all the pink (which might help these appeal to boys). You can see my review of the other books in the series here.

[Edit: Just visited the series' website and the author's blog and discovered that the next book in the series is The Summer Camp Shakedown, coming out May 2010. The two titles for next year are The Bake Sale Breakdown and The Field Trip Frenzy.]

  1. The Lunch Lady books are a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to the movie - Amy Poehler's starring, and I love her. Plus Sarah Haskins (of Target Women, which you should totally check out if you hadn't already) is writing the script!

  2. Kristi - I hadn't heard that. Thanks for the information! How fun.
