Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4–Dee, Terrence, and Hector are looking forward to Mr. Scribson's upcoming author visit. Suspicions soon arise, though, when the man refuses to sign Hector's worn copy of Flippy Bunny, snatching it away from him instead. Then Coach Birkby goes missing, and Lunch Lady and Betty start to investigate. They soon learn that gym teachers from other schools the author visited have also disappeared, and they're hot on the case. The illustrator uses a fine line of pen and ink with touches of yellow. Balloon call-outs are large and clear and work well for beginning readers and those new to the graphic-novel format.–Lisa Gieskes, CA Johnson Preparatory Academy, Columbia, SC

From Booklist

The kids at the supersmart Lunch Lady’s school anticipate a visit from a favorite author, but when he asks for an autograph he seems a bit odd, and the next day their gym teacher goes missing. Dee, Hector, and Terrence—under the watchful tutelage of the investigatory-instrument-creating Lunch Lady—unravel the mystery in this third entry in the three-tone graphic-novel series. Krosoczka has created a clever diversion this round, with appeal not just for kids but also for other children’s authors. Grades 3-5. --Francisca Goldsmith

More About the Author

Jarrett J. Krosoczka has been passionate about storytelling through words and pictures since he was a kid. He began his professional career by illustrating educational readers for a national publisher while still an undergraduate at Rhode Island School of Design. Then, just six months after graduation, Jarrett received his first contract for a trade book that he authored. Knopf Books for Young Readers published Good Night, Monkey Boy on June 12, 2001 and Jarrett hasn't stopped or slowed down since.

Jarrett is a two-time winner of the Children's Choice Book Award for the Third to Fourth Grade Book of the Year and is the author and illustrator of twenty-three books including the Lunch Lady graphic novels and Platypus Police Squad middle-grade novel series. Jarrett's TED Talk on his journey from boy to artist has been viewed nearly a half-million times. He is also the host of The Book Report with JJK on SiriusXM's Kids Place Live, a weekly segment celebrating books, authors and reading. His work was recently featured on the front page of The Boston Globe and on NPR's All Things Considered. It has also been recommended by national publications such as Newsweek, The New York Times and USA Today. His Punk Farm picture book and Lunch Lady series are both currently in development as feature films. Jarrett lives in Western Massachusetts with his wife, two daughters and their pug--Ralph Macchio.

A graphic novel is a great transition to chapter books from picture books for young readers.

Kiwi Magazine Review:
It took me a while to learn to love graphic novels, but I really appreciate this genre for children. These books are great for reluctant readers and inspiring for budding artists. Although there is a great deal of mimicry and I find alot of similarities in themes (those lunch ladies really are versatile), if the humor and illustrations convince a kid to read this sort of book rather than tune into television or a game, I think this is a victory. This book is silly and fun with some great twists, but, more importantly, might convince a reluctant reader to get lost in its pages.

As a reading tutor I am always looking for high interest books for my students with dyslexia. This series of books is perfect--it's funny and has a lot of lively pictures of the cafeteria Lunch Lady saving the day, plus the words used are a good mix of mainly easy and with some challenging ones thrown in too. I have a very smart eleven year old student who can only read at the first or early second grade level and he loves this book. It takes him a long time, but not only can he read almost all of it himself, I have to take the book out of his hands at the end of our session because he is completely engrossed.

Format: Paperback
After not being very impressed with book 1 and slightly enjoying book 2, I must say book 3 here has left me feeling much better about this series. After a rather curmudgeonly kiddy author visits to sign books, the school's coach disappears. Lunch Lady and the gang do some research and it seems school coaches have been disappearing for a few years back now coinciding with this author's school visits! Lunch Lady to the rescue! Lunch Lady is still a bit over the top with the kitchen gadget spy tools. Here she receives hamburger headphones that let her listen in on conversations going on all around her. The plot is still rather unbelievable. How can a common author have the power to hypnotize men into being his servants for years on end? But I like the repartee between the kids and how they take on the problems they are faced with plus their quick thinking and sensible, realistic solutions. Even though the Lunch Lady series continues to be over the top, I can honestly say I found this one fun, it had its humorous moments and I have finally made a connection with the kids, if not LL. Hopefully book 4 will continue in the same vein.

OK, so our daughter read the 4th book in the series first and was hooked! Let me start off by saying she was NOT a fan of reading before she read this book and seemed to resist reading on her own. Well, she was loving the first book she was reading so much I ordered the rest of the series. Amazon was speedy quick with delivery and she devoured this book in just one day! (Seriously, we had to tell her to stop reading to eat!) She is so proud of her new accomplishment (M & D are too!) and could not wait to get her hands on the next one. So glad I ordered all of them!
(FYI-It does not seem to matter which order they read the books)

Big-Big thumbs up!! We have already pre-ordered the next book in the series, coming out end of Dec 2010.

I hope Jarrett J. Krosoczka keeps them coming!

Krosoczka's at it again, awesome art, funny dialogue, Hiyaaa. He is able to relate to School age people and adults. I highly recommend this series if one is trying to spark an interest in reading for their young person.
