Lunch Lady and the Bake Sale Bandit: 05/18/16

Lunch Lady and the Bake Sale Bandit by Jarrett J. Krosoczka

When I posted my review of the final book in the series, Lunch Lady and the Schoolwide Scuffle, I mistakenly thought I had reviewed all the books. Surprise, surprise, I hadn't.

Lunch Lady and the Bake Sale Bandit by Jarrett J. Krosoczka is the fifth in the series. Bake sales are a traditional way for PTAs to earn money for their schools. Of course with the growing concern over childhood obesity and food allergies, there's more of a push to make these events include healthy options. Our school, for instance, includes hummus and vegetables.

Here, though, someone on staff wants to take things to vigilante extremes. On the day of the bake sale, everything goes missing. Before the Lunch Lady and Betty can track down the goodies, the Breakfast Bunch find themselves kidnapped by the villain!

Buszilla!

This series fun derives from the mash up of a school setting with super villains and their gadgetry. In this case, it's Buszilla, a transforming dinosaur shaped mech that starts off as an ordinary looking school bus!

I also live blogged the book on Tumblr.
