Lunch Lady and the League of Libraians
By Jarrett J. Krosoczka
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2008.
Unpaged Grades 3-6 Reluctant Readers
Okay so I was drawn to these books–not only because they were recommended by one of my favorite Intervention Specialis,t but because the lunch ladies, undercover crime fighters, are fighting librarians!! Now I do feel the Librarians were somewhat justified in destroying a new shipment of video game systems, since the students participation in the read-a-thon was at an all time low. But wiping the world clean from video games–I think not! This book was fun, cleaverly illustrated and those darn lunch ladies move in quickly to save the day assisted by the “Breakfast Bunch.” I love the black and white drawings with splashes of yellow throughout the entire book. Fun to read and to look at! I think these graphic novels will be addicting.
