Lunch Lady and Betty serve up another action-filled adventure in the third installment of the Lunch Lady series. It is the long-awaited author-visit day for the students at Thompson Brook School, and Lewis Scribson—author of the beloved Flippy Bunny books—is scheduled to appear. When Mr. Scribson shows up, there’s something not quite right about the surly, bespectacled author, and mysteriously, on the same day, Coach Birkby goes missing. It’s up to Lunch Lady and the Breakfast Buddies to save the day once again. Their fight to uncover the truth reveals Scribson’s secret plot, complete with an entire army of attack–Flippy Bunnies, all equipped with cute bow ties and deadly fangs. This episode dishes out more of the same rampant silliness in its trademark gray-and-yellow palette. Those who have followed the series will be pleased with its consistency, though those looking for more development may be disappointed. Although not particularly substantial, this is another helping of hijinks for Lunch Lady fans. (Graphic novel. 7-10)
