No Mere Librarian!,
This review is from: Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute: Lunch Lady #1 (Paperback)Move over Batman. Move over Phantom. This hero lives a little closer to our kids' reality. Enter, the Lunch Lady, cook to the hungry, nutritional guardian for the addicted, and protector of Thompson Brook School!
What do you do when a substitute seems out of the ordinary, seems too eager,and too perfect? Homework from a sub alerts the kids to a situation gone amiss, and once Lunch Lady monitors everyone else, a disturbing pattern arises! Is Teacher of the Year worth that much? How does he get the $ on a teachers salary to build so many robots?
Jarrett J Krosoczka has created a marvelous book that breaks the convention that the cafeteria cook is old and crotchety. He packs this hero with a boiler room, kitchen weapons, and an assistant with an imagination that Mr Popeil never had.
I loved this book and highly recommend it to all ages.
