Lunch Lady and the Breakfast Bunch kids are looking forward to a relaxing summer vacation with no funny business. What evils could befall them at summer camp?


I love summer camps.

I’ve been to a day summer camp when I was ten, but never to one I could have any kind of sleepover at, so I’m always excited to read about fictional campers’ experiences.

And this one is rather horrifying, because there is a monster causing trouble at camp, and making it impossible for the campers to do any of the fun activities! Now, now, that’s not in spirit of the camp.

As always with this series, this tome was entertaining, action-filled and mildly mysterious.

But I cannot give it a higher rating, seeing that it is such a cliché story, surprisingly, and the new characters (including Dee) so very stereotypical.

No, girls do not think about guys and clothes all day long, and yet this is what this author shows here. Obviously there’s kickass Lunch Lady and her sidekick Betty, so I’m not saying that’s what the author thinks of girls—that they see a hot guy and can think of nothing else all day—but it sure was disappointing to witness that that’s what he based his humour on.

Young children read this, and I so wish we could teach them that there’s more to life than hot guys.

But again, fun and addictive.
