JARRETT J. KROSOCZKA is the author and illustrator of six other Lunch Lady graphic novels, as well as numerous popular picture books, including Ollie, Punk Farm, Punk Farm on Tour, Max for President, and Baghead.

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.

Format: Paperback
Don't mess with Lunch Lady. This yellow-gloved cafeteria worker will take you down.

The latest book in the series, LUNCH LADY AND THE MUTANT MATHLETES, opens with Lunch Lady putting a stop to a robbery with Batman-style fighting. From there we get into the main story, which is about the mathlete team. Dee, Hector and Terrence skipped out on the museum tour, and the principal hands down his punishment for them: they have to join the mathlete team. It's definitely punishment; as Dee puts it, "Who would voluntarily choose to do math after school?"

But the three of them are good at math, and the school mathlete team is soon winning competitions. However, the odds are stacked against them when it comes to winning against the Willowby Academy Mathletes, who have never lost a match. Lunch Lady thinks there's something odd about them and decides to investigate.

Of course her suspicions are correct, and something sinister is afoot with the competing team. Lunch Lady will have to use her super (or not-so-super) powers in order to save the day and let her school's team get a fair chance in the competition. To say Willowby Academy is made up of sore losers is putting it lightly --- these people are dangerous! But Lunch Lady can handle it --- I don't know of any other superhero who has pineapple mace.

The Lunch Lady books are fun, quick reads for kids, with lots of zany and culinary-inspired humor. Though Lunch Lady is the titular character, she's only in part of the book, with Dee, Hector and Terrence also playing important roles. The art has that purposefully cartoony style, like something you might see on Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon, and the colors come in black, gray, white and yellow. Is that to bring more attention to Lunch Lady's yellow gloves? Lunch Lady is definitely the one who steals the show, and readers who enjoy this book ought to check out the others in the series if they haven't already.

My son discovered these in the library and checked them out so often that I decided to purchase the entire set. They are very humorous.
