The story of Lunch Lady, a school cafeteria worker with a crime-fighting, superpowered alterego. This series is hugely popular and with good reason - it's funny, over the top, and action packed!

"As if slinging hash in the school cafeteria isn't exciting enough, Lunch Lady has a secret life as a crime-fighting superhero! And she's noticed that something about the new substitute teacher, Mr. Pasteur, just doesn't seem right. But while Lunch Lady is busy investigating Mr. Pasteur, students Hector, Terrence, and Dee are investigating her (the kids have always wondered what Lunch Lady does when she's not doling out her famous French toast sticks). If you like this wacky, action-packed comic, be sure not to miss Lunch Lady's further adventures in Lunch Lady and the League of Librarians. " Kids' Books November 2013 newsletter

Then one day, their favourite math teacher get sick and is replaced by someone who is too good to be true. Because he is a cyborg. Can the Lunch Lady stop the Cyborg Substitutes sinister plan to replace all the teachers with robots before it's too late?

Cute graphic novel that is perfect for the Captain Underpants fans out there.
