Read full description of the books Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute: Lunch Lady #1:You can tell that author and illustrator Jarrett J. Krosoczka has a pass ion about comics and graphic novels through this book. It’s amazing that the illustrations only include the colors yellow, gray, and black, yet readers are swept away into this animated world. Because there is a lot on each page, more colors may have been more distracting to the reader. The transitions between scenes and conversations are so smooth that I literally felt like I was watching television. I could imagine it so vividly in my head that I completely forgot that I was reading.
Not only are the pictures engaging and fun to look at, this book is hilarious and would be a perfect pick for children who either hate reading, or just appreciate comics and cartoons. The three kids in the book are just a bunch of average kids that are very relatable. The lunch lady’s job is not only to serve delicious meals but to serve justice. It is a random, perfect plotline for a humorous, engaging superhero story. Jarrett Krosoczka packs so much into this little book—interesting weapons, secret boiler rooms, and crazy robots. To me, the best part is just how great the expressions and each character are. These illustrations do the storyline justice, and even increase the effectiveness of this graphic novel! Some may argue that there is too much going on in each page and perhaps younger children will turn away from this book due to the amount of stimulus packed in, but I feel like second to third graders will truly appreciate this book!
I also like how this book is little. I expected it to be the size of a large picture book. However, it works well as a littler “novel”-looking book, to appeal to elementary students who are quickly moving to longer and more challenging books. It fits easily in any bag, and is ready to immerse any reader into this hilarious superhero world.

Jarrett J. Krosoczka used to be a goofy kid that liked to draw. Now, he is a published author/illustrator with many books to his credit. Growing up in Worcester, MA Jarrett drew relentlessly and always had a cast of characters that he wrote stories for. In 9th grade, Jarrett won a contest with The Worcester Telegram & Gazette and for the first time—saw his work in print.
This sparked a fire within. He went on to graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design, after being initially rejected. It was in his senior year that he received his first illustration job for a national educational publisher. Then, six months after graduating RISD, Jarrett carried his portfolio into New York City and landed a contract for his first book. He immediately ran to a pay phone to share the good news with his grandparents. Good Night, Monkey Boy was published on June 12, 2001 and Jarrett has since been busy producing more picture books—including Baghead; Bubble Bath Pirates; Annie Was Warned; Max for President; Punk Farm; Giddy Up, Cowgirl; My Buddy, Slug and Punk Farm on Tour. With the publication of Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute and Lunch Lady and the League of Librarians in July of 2009, Jarrett has embarked on a new journey in his career—that as a graphic novelist.
Jarrett has been chosen by Print as one of their 20 top new visual artists under 30 and has had his work short listed by Newsweek, USA Today, The Boston Globe and The New York Times, among others. His books have landed on numerous recommendation lists, including the Texas 2X2 list and the IRA/CBC Children's Choice Awards. Jarrett's Punk Farm and Lunch Lady series are both currently in development as feature films.
With new picture book projects, as well as new Lunch Lady books on the horizon, Jarrett is happily living out his childhood dream in Northampton, MA where he resides with his wife and daughter and their pug, Ralph Macchio.
