I love this series for so many reasons. It has a number of strong female characters, which is always wonderful to see. The humour plays with ideas of elementary school life but never feels too juvenile. It has a perfect balance of cracking dialogue and groaners. One of the small things that I love about the Lunch Lady books is how it starts with an unrelated event before the credits, like a teaser. It’s very cinematic, like what you might see in a superhero movie. It’s such a fun read. I already have the next few books in the series on hold.
