The Final Lunch Lady Has Spoken

I have been meaning to profile the last Lunch Lady graphic novel for a while now, but so much stuff just got in the way!  Sadly J. Krosoczka has wrapped up his Lunch Lady series, to the chagrin of kids and parents everywhere.

I have yet to meet a kid who doesn't love this series and no one can read these books without acquiring a new found respect for the men and women who deliver a nutritious lunch to a set of hungry school children every day.

J. Krosoczka has completed the series with a fun and gadget filled last book.  Thank you for 10 episodes of laughs and above all Justice!

Title:       Lunch Lady and the Schoolwide Scuffle

Author:  Jarrett Krosczka

Target:   Grades 1-3

Series:    Yes

What this book is about:  
In this final book in the series, the Lunch Ladies have been fired due to cuts in the school budget.  As a result, crime is running rampant and an evil superintendent has taken over the school.  Oh, did I forget to mention that the Lunch Ladies not only meet the dietary needs of the students, they also keep peace and justice with their superior defensive skills, linguine lassos, whisk wackers, and s’more stars.  Can the kids who know the secret skills of the Lunch Ladies convince them to return to bring order back at Thompson Brook School?

Why I love this series:  
These books are just absolutely fun.  Along with Babymouse and Squish, this series provides beginning readers with easy to tackle stories that are full of clever gadgets, evil villains and the least likely of heroes!  I have yet to find a child who hasn’t devoured these stories.

Who this book is for:  
Great for kids who are mastering early readers and early chapter books.  I would recommend the books in order.   While each story does stand alone, there is an arc to the characters so starting from the beginning helps with understanding.  

Final thoughts: 
Lunch Lady is a fabulous graphic novel that gives early readers a chance to read fun and engaging narratives that really are satisfying for them.
