Read full description of the books:
Lunch Lady and young campers Dee, Hector, and Terrence set up at a summer camp. Following the attack of a young camper by a swamp monster, Lunch Lady and her sidekick Betty spring into action to investigate disruptions to all of the camp’s activities. Following an egregious assault on the sanctity of the camp’s kitchen, Lunch Lady declares, “Unpack the gadgets, Betty. Tonight we’re Salisbury-staking out the pond.” (n. pag.). Assembling an underwater propulsion system out of an eggbeater and using bendy-straws to breathe, Lunch Lady goes into the pond to investigate. The ensuing epic battle leads to the thrilling conclusion of the mystery.
This paperback trade edition features uncluttered and amusing drawings to accompany the text. Primarily black and white, the drawings have some yellow highlighting or shading. The moderately sized font is easy on the eyes.
The text suffers from some stereotyping. Boys are roughhousing and playing sports, and the girls want to engage in craft making activities and discuss crushes on dreamy boys.
The suggested age range is for grades 2-4 (Booklist). Classroom uses might engage the stereotypes depicted, such as the bully, the bully’s scrawny victim, and other gender interests. The Lunch Lady web site has some activities to download, including several pages of an unfinished graphic story. This would work well for budding artists and the development of narrative abilities. Another download has several pages of Betty’s gadgets, leaving some graph paper for a student’s own amusing creations. Similar easy graphic novels include the Judy Moody series, Roscoe Riley Rules or Franklin Dixon’s Hardy Boys.

Jarrett J. Krosoczka used to be a goofy kid that liked to draw. Now, he is a published author/illustrator with many books to his credit. Growing up in Worcester, MA Jarrett drew relentlessly and always had a cast of characters that he wrote stories for. In 9th grade, Jarrett won a contest with The Worcester Telegram & Gazette and for the first time—saw his work in print.
This sparked a fire within. He went on to graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design, after being initially rejected. It was in his senior year that he received his first illustration job for a national educational publisher. Then, six months after graduating RISD, Jarrett carried his portfolio into New York City and landed a contract for his first book. He immediately ran to a pay phone to share the good news with his grandparents. Good Night, Monkey Boy was published on June 12, 2001 and Jarrett has since been busy producing more picture books—including Baghead; Bubble Bath Pirates; Annie Was Warned; Max for President; Punk Farm; Giddy Up, Cowgirl; My Buddy, Slug and Punk Farm on Tour. With the publication of Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute and Lunch Lady and the League of Librarians in July of 2009, Jarrett has embarked on a new journey in his career—that as a graphic novelist.
Jarrett has been chosen by Print as one of their 20 top new visual artists under 30 and has had his work short listed by Newsweek, USA Today, The Boston Globe and The New York Times, among others. His books have landed on numerous recommendation lists, including the Texas 2X2 list and the IRA/CBC Children's Choice Awards. Jarrett's Punk Farm and Lunch Lady series are both currently in development as feature films.
With new picture book projects, as well as new Lunch Lady books on the horizon, Jarrett is happily living out his childhood dream in Northampton, MA where he resides with his wife and daughter and their pug, Ralph Macchio.
