Lunch Lady and the League of Librarians by Jarrett J. Krosoczka

Krosoczka, Jarrett J. Lunch Lady and the League of Librarians 96 pgs. Knopf Books for Young Readers $5.99 Language~G; Sexual Content~G Violence~G

It’s a bird, It’s a plane. . . . . it’s the Lunch Lady? That’s right! This lunch lady serves justice up on a plastic tray!

In this exciting and hilarious episode the librarians are up to something. Determined to undermine the new gaming system coming to town the public, elementary and high school librarians pool their resources and devise an evil plan to get rid of the terrible X-Station 5000. The lunch lady soon discovers their plan and with the help of the Breakfast Bunch, she foils the plot of the evil librarians.

This second volume is not quite as brilliant as the first, but this new graphic novel series aimed at elementary school kids with capture their attention.

*On a personal note I was disappointed that the librarians and their books were the evil in this episode. I think there is a place for both video games and books. Both get kids to read.*
