Three friends (a.k.a. "the Breakfast Bunch") wonder what the lunch lady does when she's not cooking. Little do they know she's a superhero in disguise, complete with flying Spatu-copter and lunch tray laptop. This tongue-in-cheek graphic novel series, illustrated in bold black-and-white with vibrant highlighter-yellow accents, is a strong choice for superhero-spoof fans. [Review covers these titles: Lunch Lady and the Author Visit Vendetta, Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute, and Lunch Lady and the League of Librarians.] Copyright 2010 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Gr 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
