Jarrett J. Krosoczka has done it again with Lunch Lady and the Bake Sale Bandit. This latest installment in the Lunch Lady series finds our culinary hero getting to the bottom of the school bake sale's mysterious disappearance. Expect your usual batch of laughs and bamfs (an appropriate word for comic book explosions involving a monster school bus called Buszilla and a mac & cheese cannon) as Lunch Lady, her assistant Betty, and the Breakfast Bunch avoid red herrings and detention to save the bake sale goodies and the school's field trip. This series is a great pick for reluctant readers, and for fans of Wimpy Kid or Babymouse.
