‘CALVIN COCONUT: ROCKET RIDE’
BY GRAHAM SALISBURY
Calvin’s dad is a famous pop singer, and he’s going to be in a concert on the island. Everyone wants to go.
Dad gave Calvin’s mom 10 tickets, and Calvin has to decide who gets the last ticket: Teacher’s pet Shayla, who has a crush on him (ick!) or Tito the bully.
But much more important: Calvin hasn’t seen his dad in four years, since his parents got divorced. And he’s never met Dad’s new wife. Will Dad still like Calvin now?
‘LUNCH LADY AND THE PICTURE DAY PERIL’
BY JARRETT J. KROSOCZKA
It’s picture day at Thompson Brook, but the students are plagued by a freak acne epidemic.
While the Breakfast Bunch scrambles to put their best faces forward, their highfalutin photographer raises Lunch Lady’s eyebrows.
She suspects the photographer may have an underhanded plan to break into the world of high fashion that puts the students in danger!
Will Lunch Lady be able to storm the runway and stop the vogue rogue without blowing her cover?
Fans of “Captain Underpants” will love the latest installment in this beloved series about an ordinary school lunch lady who fights crime and injustice when she’s not serving sloppy joes.
Jarrett J. Krosoczka was inspired to write the “Lunch Lady” series when he visited his own elementary school and discovered that the very same lunch lady that served him lunch in his school days was still working there. He began to wonder about her life, and after years of thought, drawing, and fun, this unusual superhero was born.
