Picture book author/artist Jarrett Krosoczka is turning his talents to a young graphic novel format that is perfect for his bold, zany style. With a hilarious premise--the adventures of a school lunch lady who fights crime when she's not serving sloppy joes--and a strong look, we think this is the project to break Jarrett out. And with graphic novels like RH's Babymouse on the rise, the timing couldn't be better.
This is the format Jarrett was born to do--the premise, the characters, the funky gadgets, and the story umote tp create a huge kid-pleaser. We'll be launching with two titles in summer '10--and when kids love something they just want more of it! We'll be happy to oblige, with more Lunch Ladies on the way: right now, we have one in spring '11 and a fourth in summer '11.
From the author of National Book Award finalist Hey, Kiddo.

Little do they know, Lunch Lady doesn’t just serve sloppy joes—she serves justice! Whatever danger lies ahead, it’s no match for LUNCH LADY!
