Lunch Lady and the Author Visit Vendetta by Jarrett J. Krosoczka

The Lunch Lady has battled cyborg substitutes and evil librarians in the interest of keeping the school safe. Now, though, she has her hands full making special treats for a visiting author. The kids are really excited to meet the author of the Flippy Bunny books. There’s something not quite right about him, though…something the Lunch Lady can’t put her finger on. Then the gym teacher goes missing, and it’s up to the Lunch Lady to uncover exactly what’s going on!

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.

Find it at IndieBound.
