Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that there is some minor violence in these very funny comic books, but it all stays very exaggerated and cartoony. The Lunch Lady is an admirable and surprising heroine.
What's the story?
The Lunch Lady is an undercover spy at Thompson Brook School solving crimes and serving lunch to students who have no idea of her alter ego. Along with her fellow lunch lady, Betty, and the Breakfast Bunch -- students Hector, Terrence, and Dee -- Lunch Lady foils the criminal and saves the day every time. Whether it be a robot masquerading as a substitute teacher, an author who has been hypnotized, or an evil league of librarians, Lunch Lady uses her brains and technological gadgets to put things back to right.
Is it any good?
The extreme cartoony nature of these illustrations are a good fit for these outrageous and funny stories.
