Review: The scene is set. It's dark, a little too dark. The spy music plays as out jumps…Lunch Lady?!! That's right. Lunch Lady. Usually it would be Superman or Batman. But at this school, the Lunch Lady is the hero. The Lunch Lady's magnificent action-packed story comes to life in Lunch Lady and the Bake Sale Bandit, written by Jarrett J. Krosoczka. Lunch Lady and the Bake Sale Bandit is the fifth book in the Lunch Ladyseries.
It's a rainy day as bus-driver Brenda pulls up to the next stop, as usual. The Breakfast Bunch, Dee, Hector, and Terrence, climb aboard. As soon as they arrive at school, there is already lots of commotion because today is the bake sale! Everyone drops their treats off in the cafeteria and goes to class. Of course, everyone is tempted to grab a sweet throughout the day, but Lunch Lady protects the bake sale treats. Suddenly, the power goes out. But then, it instantly comes back on, and when it does, the bake sale treats are gone! The Breakfast Club and the Lunch Lady are on the case searching everywhere for clues. Maybe it's him or maybe her? No one knows. Soon they figure out the Bake Sale Bandit is …
Lunch Lady and the Bake Sale Bandit is a wonderful book. It gives me a lot of laughs. It's an action-packed story with a Lunch Lady twist. I especially love the "mirror broom" and "ketchup laser." I enjoy how the story is like a real school, where everyone loves the Lunch Lady. Lunch Lady and the Bake Sale Bandit has amazing graphics and colors. I love the design of all the characters. The author did a great job with the plot of the story. It is very realistic, but still fun and silly. Lunch Lady and the Bake Sale Bandit is a great read for anyone looking for action, adventure, and a good laugh.
