"When Andrew's lunch goes missing in The Lost Lunch , he can’t think where he might have left it. With the help of his friend Dylan, he looks on the playground and in the classroom, until he finally thinks to look in the lost and found. Kids like this early mystery, as Dylan searches all the places in his school where he thinks his lunch might be. It's successful because kids can relate to the very same thing happening to them. This series provides fun, appealing early readers for children who enjoy comics and graphic novels. The bright illustrations, short sentences with controlled vocabulary, and text that is supported by closely matching art helps early readers enjoy these independently. Look at this example from Google Books to get a sense of how bright their illustrations are, and how they use simple sentences and vocabulary. Do you have a favorite graphic novel for your new reader? We also enjoy the Toon Books, like Benny and Penny . I'm curious about the Balloon Toon books, like Rick and Rack and the Great Outdoors . If you've read this, let us know what you think of it!" - Great Kids Books

"The first couple of pages show how to read a graphic novel showing the direct panels and then showing how the direction text and balloons should be read. Andrew and Dylan are playing before school but when lunch time comes around Andrew realizes he left his lunch in the playground. With permission from the teacher they go to look for his lost lunch but it is not where they had supposed it would be. When they have run out of places to look and Andrew's tummy can take it no longer they have a brilliant idea. An interesting, fun story with great artwork to help tell the story at this low reading level, RL 1.8. Geared to younger children, but not babyish. My reading challenged 10yo found the story interesting and felt confident to have read the book in one sitting. 4/5" - Back to Books Blog
