Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute by Jarrett J. Krosoczka (Ages 9-12)


Lunch Lady doesn't just serve sloppy joes—she serves justice! Whatever danger lies ahead, it's no match for LUNCH LADY!

Lunch Lady and Betty, her assistant in both the cafeteria and her role of wrong-¬righting super sleuth, investigate the strange case of an absent teacher, his creepy substitute, and a plan to grab the Teacher of the Year Award by truly foul means. Three little kids join in the action as Lunch Lady, equipped with a variety of high-tech kitchen gadgets like a spatu-copter and a lunch-tray laptop, tracks a cleverly disguised robot to his maker's lab, where a whole army of cyborgs require kicking, stomping, and the wielding of fish-stick nunchucks. Yellow-highlighted pen-and-ink cartoons are as energetic and smile-provoking as Lunch Lady's epithets of "Cauliflower!" and Betty's ultimate weapon, the hairnet. This super heroine graphic novel is perfect for chapter book readers.
