Part of the Rory Branagan (Detective) Series

The Deadly Dinner Lady Synopsis

Meet RORY BRANAGAN - he eats bad guys for breakfast. Well, not ACTUALLY. But he IS the best detective in town. Fourth in the hilarious illustrated comedy-crime book series for kids, RORY BRANAGAN (DETECTIVE). Hello. I am Rory Branagan. I am DEFINITELY a detective. An absolutely HUGE crime has been committed at my school . . . Nobody likes our head dinner lady, but WHO would actually try to KILL her? And WHY? It's up to me and my Accomplice, Cassidy 'the Cat' Callaghan, to solve our DEADLIEST crime yet. There are seven books in the RORY BRANAGAN (DETECTIVE) series and this is the fourth. Highly illustrated on every page by Happiness Is creator Ralph Lazar, this book is perfect for children aged 8 and up, and all children at heart.

The Deadly Dinner Lady Press Reviews

'I read it COVER to COVER immediately. I absolutely loved it and it put a smile the size of the Grand Canyon on my face. It is so delightful ... Ralph's quizzical, characterful and charming illustrations are the perfect foil to that Clover storytelling magic, full of humour, genuinely thrilling and moving to boot.' Piers Torday, author of The Last Wild trilogy 'The Rory Branagan books are fun, fast, and child friendly. The perfect link between picture books and full length novels. If your children like books like The Diary of a Wimpy kid, they'll love these.' Adam Baron, author of Boy Underwater 'Words and illustrations are both very funny and surprisingly touching ... A great new series for young readers.' LoveReading4Kids on Rory Branagan (Detective) 'A totally addictive page-turning storyline ... Incredibly clever.' The Bookbag on Rory Branagan (Detective)
