So I had a great time reading this one. TRAPPED IN LUNCH LADY LAND follows the adventures of Josh and Patty Anne as they are (you guessed it) trapped in a strange world called Lunch Lady Land. Their adventures are very reminiscent of THE WIZARD OF OZ, with meeting new friends (and adversaries) and finding themselves deep in trouble. In addition, the world around them is edible which made me incredibly hungry as I read.
This book will have huge appeal to the younger crowd, probably 2nd grade and up, both boys and girls alike. Totally worth checking out for those younger readers in your life. I enjoyed the adventure from start to finish!

TRAPPED IN LUNCH LADY LAND by David M. Simon (Cbay Books, May 7th, 2014)

About the book:

Josh and Patty Anne aren't exactly the best of friends (ok, they detest each other), but after they both end up trapped somewhere beneath their school in a land made up of school cafeteria food, they quickly learn they have to work together if they want to survive. With the help of some unusual friends they meet along the way, the two must brave countless dangers unlike anything in the normal world. If they can survive the skybeater, the canisaurs and the tater-tot throwing ladle monsters, Josh and Patty Anne might just make it home alive.

Trapped in Lunch Lady Land was the very first Middle Grade Winner in the Yummy but Brainy Writing Contest presented by CBAY Books.
