Review: Great Brussels sprouts! What an amazing graphic novel! The Lunch Lady and the Author Visit Vendetta by Jarrett J. Krosoczka is one of the best graphic novels I have EVER read! The author has struck gold with this book. This is the third book in the series, though I HOPE there will be more because this book has it ALL. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys comedy graphic novels.
Cool gadgets, scheming authors, raging bunnies, and solving mysteries are no biggy for the Lunch Lady. When a scheming author visits the school it’s up to the Lunch Lady to save the day. Gym teachers are disappearing all around the country. Will the Lunch Lady solve this case and get the gym teachers back? You can find all this out in The Lunch Lady and the Author Visit Vendetta!
What I really liked about this book is that the characters, more specifically the Lunch Lady uses catch phrases for example, great Brussels sprouts or I swear on my Salisbury steak special. Another one is sweet BBQ sauce. I think those are SO funny. I think you should read this book because it has a humor that is so hilarious because it is corny, in a good way. Not only does it have the catch phrases stated above, but the Lunch Lady has gadgets that look like ordinary lunch room items but are actually tools to use when trying to solve a case. Some of the gadgets are the Whisk Whackers, a Spork Phone, the Cannoli-oculars, the Hamburger Headphones, a Mustard Grappling Hook, and a Fancy Ketchup Packet Laser. What could be more exciting? The Lunch Lady is amusing, has a good plot, and well-established characters. It has it all.
