Here Comes… Lunch Lady!!!!! (Holy Jalapenos!)


     Lunch Lady and the Picture Day Peril is a comic book by Jatter J. Krosoczka.

     Lunch Lady and the Picture Day Peril is a comic book by Jatter J. Krosoczka. When Stefani DePino comes to take pictures on picture day at Thompson Brook School, all the students suddenly get acne! The students are willing to each pay an extra $15 to get “airbrushed” in their photo so the acne won’t show. They wouldn’t want their acne to be recorded in the yearbook forever!  Given this strange situation, Lunch Lady gets suspicious of Stefani because a student comes in one day and asks what food she is serving. The student thinks it is the food that is giving the kids acne, but Lunch Lady only serves healthy food. She decides to investigate.

     Stefani tells a student that the student can be a model, but has to pay $1,000. The student decides to borrow the money from the student council fund, but after she pays her, Stefani leaves the school! Betty, Lunch Lady’s assistant, has also started to investigate. She finds that the permission slips were tainted with acne-inducing chemicals so the students got acne and had to pay the airbrushing fee! She also sees Stefani in one of her gossip magazines. They figure out that Stefani is going to a fashion show in Paris, so Lunch Lady and Betty follow her. Can they stop Stefani and get their money back? Or will she get away with the crime? Read this book to find out.

     I think that Lunch Lady and the Picture Day Peril is geared towards kids in 3rd to 5th grade because it is a pretty easy read since it is a comic book that would interest both boys and girls. It ranges in price from about $6- $15. I would give this book 3 ½ out of 5 lunches because although it is probably interesting for younger kids, it wasn’t exciting for older kids.
