ALA Booklist
Elementary-schoolers Dee, Hector, and Terrence go to a sleepaway camp where the supersleuth Lunch Lady from their school happens to be working her off-season. At camp, the prepubescent boys and girls behave with developmentally appropriate lapses in social niceties: the boys crack jokes about farts, while Dee really doesn't get why the other girls have crushes on the cute male counselors. Lunch Lady and her assistant, meanwhile, utilize imaginative foodie tech to battle the mysterious Scum Monster, including Taco-vision night goggles worn to their Salisbury stakeout. Krosoczka's inventive visual details, spot-on characterizations, and grade-school humor make this a standout graphic-novel series.
Horn Book
The Breakfast Bunch members go to summer camp, where their super-hero pal Lunch Lady works in the canteen. Together they uncover the mystery of a swamp monster terrorizing the campers. Per usual with this graphic novel series, the ludicrous story line is merely a vehicle for Krosoczka's creatively named super-hero gadgetry and off-the-wall cartoon illustrations in bold black and white with vibrant highlighter-yellow accents.

Gr 2&11;5&12; Fun and funny. Brave Lunch Lady; her reliable sidekick, Betty; and those inquisitive kids Hector, Dee, and Terrence move the mystery and adventure to the road as they take on the slimy swamp monster that&9;s been terrifying Camp Fun Times. There are plenty of suspects as the kids get to know their counselors, but Lunch Lady and Betty are ready for anything with new gadgets like an Underwater Bendy-Straw Breathing Apparatus and an Underwater Mixer-Propulsion Backpack. The two-color art is loopy and energetic, with varied, easy-to-follow page layouts. Jokes and puns are sprinkled throughout to keep the energy high until the exciting finale.&12; Paula Willey, Baltimore County Public Library, Towson, MD
