What do you get when you cross James Bond with a cafeteria worker? Why the Lunch Lady, of course! Not only does she serve a fabulous pizza (with gravy), but she can wield those fish stick nunchucks like a pro! Lunch Lady and her trusty partner, Betty, are on the case when the new substitute teacher piles on the kids homework for no reason. Three kids happen to uncover their secret and unwittingly become involved in a battle with an evil teacher. In book two the kids overhear the nasty librarians plan to overtake the world.  You must read this to find out what dangerous weapons the librarians used, they gave me some ideas that's for sure! These graphic novels should be a big hit with kids, teachers and librarians alike. The text is minimal and the panels carry the story and the action. The art, done in black, white and yellow, is fun and eye-catching. Look for book three soon, Lunch Lady and the Author Visit Vendetta!
