This is the second in this series that my daughter has read and she enjoyed this just as much as the first. I'm not sure whether it's a good thing or bad that these can be read in a single session... It would be nice to get more 'value' out of it by stretching it out over three nights, but on the other hand, this makes for one compact episode.

I really enjoyed this too. My only eye-roll is directed at the character of Dee; it's clear now that Dee conforms to what I call the 'Hermione Trope'. We see it in Monster House and, well, all over the place: A gang of three kids, two boys and one girl fall into adventure. The girl in this situation is always the same -- imperative, annoying and the one in charge of looking up books and doing research.

This is a minor annoyance though, and I appreciate that the superheroes in this book are two lunch ladies. ( )

Lunch Lady and the Author Visit Vendetta by Jarrett J. Krosoczka is the third of the Lunch Lady series. Dee, Terrence and Hector are excited to have a favorite author at their school. When the author isn't what they expected and the school coach goes missing, the kids and the Lunch Lady (with trusty Betty at her side) must investigate.

As far as set ups go for this series, this one seems the least plausible. The whole set up is based around an incredibly famous and wealthy children's author who hates children and hates making public appearances. The author's evil scheme, though, is amusing.

My reaction to book three is hit or miss. It will either work for you or it won't. So far my favorites are books two (Lunch Lady and the League of Librarians) and four (Lunch Lady and the Summer Camp Shakedown). ( )

Very cute and humorous read. The graphic novel style is easy to follow and understand. Great for late elementary boys or girls interested in comic books, super heroes and humor. This would be a good transition form comic books to more advanced reading. ( )

After not being very impressed with book 1 and slightly enjoying book 2, I must say book 3 here has left me feeling much better about this series. After a rather curmudgeonly kiddy author visits to sign books, the school's coach disappears. Lunch Lady and the gang do some research and it seems school coaches have been disappearing for a few years back now coinciding with this author's school visits! Lunch Lady to the rescue! Lunch Lady is still a bit over the top with the kitchen gadget spy tools. Here she receives hamburger headphones that let her listen in on conversations going on all around her. The plot is still rather unbelievable. How can a common author have the power to hypnotize men into being his servants for years on end? But I like the repartee between the kids and how they take on the problems they are faced with plus their quick thinking and sensible, realistic solutions. Even though the Lunch Lady series continues to be over the top, I can honestly say I found this one fun, it had its humorous moments and I have finally made a connection with the kids, if not LL. Hopefully book 4 will continue in the same vein. ( )
