Reviews for Lunch Lady 5 : Lunch Lady and the Bake Sale Bandit

Booklist Reviews 2011 February #2
The clever and inventive Lunch Lady along with her protégés, elementary-school students Dee, Hector, and Terrence, take on the titular bad guy in another satisfying episode of schoolwide politics, derring-do, and a bit of appealing fantasy, culminating in the attack of the villain's supercharged Buszilla. A know-it-all fellow student, a crusading health teacher, and a maniacal bus driver are among Krosoczka's funny and over-the-top red herrings. The high action of the yellow-washed, black-and-white cartoon panels is echoed in the narrative's pacing. The end clearly sets up the gang's next adventure. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.
