    1. If you read "10 Rules You Absolutely Must Not Break if You Want to Survive the School Bus", then you understand the premise of this book. This is another book along the same lines. This time his friend gives him rules about eating lunch in the cafeteria. This book is a great book for the beginning of school to accompany the previous installment of the "School Bus". I would read this to 2nd-5th graders depending on the comprehension level of the students and what activities or learning opportunit [...]

    2. Ginny gives Kyle all the rules to follow when eating in the cafeteria since this is his first time. But do the rules really help?I'm afraid the humor was odd and didn't really work for me. The age targeted is 6 - 9, which I can understand since most little ones wouldn't understand the story at all, and the text is very long for a picture book. The illustrations weren't funny to me, they were more on the creepy side. But then that's why they publish lots of stories and various artists. Not everyt [...]

    3. I had read the Bus rules book a few years ago and was pleased to see this addition. I actually enjoyed it better than the bus one! It was shorter for one, so held my interest, and rang truer. Even breaking all the rules, the main character was more resilient than I remembered as well. It was cute and funny.

    4. Who knew it would be so hard to navigate the cafeteria in schools with school lunch? This book is long in text and fun with illustrations but is lots of fun to read with and to a child. The illustrations are hilarious and the boy does everything you could possibly do wrong so it is so fun. This is a good pick for humor.

    5. This is the second title about school rules I've read by this author. Unlike the first, this title in the series is a bit less scary from a kid's point of view. The insect characters make great comparisons to the personalities of fellow schoolmates.

    6. I'm not sure what I expected when I started to read this story but the illustrations are hilarious! This titles is terrific for the Kindergarten to Grade 3 audience, as students are sure to enjoy Kyle's imagination seeing his fellow classmates and teachers personified as bugs.

    7. Really entertaining book. I am sure many first-time cafeteria users may find it helpful! I gave one less star for the Digital art. I really prefer a more handcrafted look, but I can see how this was the best choice for this topic!

    8. I liked this book! It's for an older audience than I'm looking for, but it might behoove me to use it this summer.

    9. Entertaining. May not be great for the little ones, though, because a few of the pictures (which I liked) may be a little creepy for them.

    10. Fabulous illustrations and great voice highlight this book about a kid learning the ropes in the cafeteria when you have to buy your lunch.

    11. A cute story with very amusing illustrations. Highly entertaining. Sure it was kinda cheesy, but not dumbed-down as kids books can so often be, and it made me chuckle.

    12. Reviewed for School Library Journal, August 2017 issue. Full review found in publication."An optional purchase for those who have a strong fan base for the first book."

    13. Pretty freaky illustration style. Protagonist has a bug fixation and may be having some hallucinatory issues.

    14. This one is going to be an awesome mentor text for writing survival rules for practically anything. Loved how the artwork mirrored the figurative language.
