Izzy and her friends have never liked school dinners. And they're getting worse. The dinner ladies are acting strangely (making up random rules, wearing hats, and cooking new food, even more horrible than usual). Lollipop man mentions there is a new head dinner lady and calls her "a bit of a legend" (in a bad way) and that she used to be here a long, long time ago and has returned. Izzy and friends wonder if she is the reason for the strange behaviour. They wonder why she has returned. They find out she was fired. They speculate as to why and decide she's a demon who's returned to do bad things. Because why wouldn't she be?

This is the first  book by Pamela  Butchart we have read and  we will  definitely  be looking out for the  other  books. Izzy and her friends  are not fans of  the  horrible  school dinners,  especially  the dreaded Shepherds pie! But when a new head dinner lady starts and with a new pie on the menu,  rumours  start about what  the filling actually is, could  it really be seagulls?  Full of adventure,  imagination and a great twist this book is definitely worth a  read.

I the Izzy  series because they always think someone is a vampire demon etc and it always makes sense at the end. This book was the latest Pamela Butchart boom I have read and it is the greatest so far. I liked all the pictures and loved every bit of the story. The genre of the book is a mystery. The book made me laugh my head of! It also made me feel happy when Izzy and her friends stood up for each other!

I  this book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I read this story with my little boys - they loved the school theme having just started school themselves and loved the dinner lady theme! we liked that there was a surprise element to the story with the Dinnerladies - trying to work out if they had become aliens or not! the school menu made the boys laugh especially trying to guess what was in them! the book kept them entertained until the end which is great as it made for a great bedtime read over several days! great book would definately read more in the series

This is a great book, about Izzy and her friends Zach, Jodi and Maisie (Who is terrified of everything) and when the dinner ladies start acting strangely Izzy and co start to investigate it is full of gripping cliffhangers and it really really really makes me laugh you really want to find out how it ends   this is a brilliant story and I give it ten out of ten

This book is funny and might be scary for young children (but it didn't scare me!) Izzy and her friends notice that there's a new head dinner lady at school and that all the meals are different and look disgusting. Is the head dinner lady really a demon, and is the new pie really made out of seagulls? I would recommend this book for ages 7+.

I think this book is a very good book because it is easy to read and has big text. There are also some nice illustrations. It is a funny book and I definitely want to read more books by Pamela Butchart. I would highly recommend this book to children 7+. It was really funny when Maisie got attacked by the seagulls.

A real really good book , could have put my daughter off school dinners at times but luckily her school dinners are very yummy and the dinner ladies are lovely (one of which is Holly's nanny!!). 
Holly said this book was like a David Walliams book, will definitely buy others by the same author.
Thanks Toppsta.

We really loved this 'Izzy' adventure. It's similar to the rest if the series but the main character is a very unusual dinner lady. This makes for loads of jokes about school dinners and dinner time, which we loved.

This book is really funny. I  like that Izzy and her friends are really superstitious and when the slightest thing gets weird they think that it's really big and they go on a really big hunt. in this book they think that something is up with the dinner ladies. My favourite part is when the Lollipop man tells the Izzy that the new head dinner lady is infamous. It makes Izzy even more suspicious and makes the story more interesting. I really liked this book and I would recommend it to age 7 plus.

I liked this book because the characters are very relatable and one of the girls keeps on fainting which made me laugh.
It was a little bit scary but it turns out alright in the end.
I liked Amy because she isn't turned into a demon after all and is quite nice.
I found the book funny and would read another

The font in this book is fab really made my daughter want  to read it.
We did find the book quiet slow and hard to get In to when it came down to actually reading it. The characters are really easy to imagine. Great storyline but not our style of writing sadly.

I read this to Bellboo when she failed to get into it.  It was quite slow and the writing style was different to what we are used to.
Despite me reading it to her (which usually solves the problem when she can't get into a book) Bell kept asking what was going on.  In the end she told me to stop reading it and is much happier reading another book.
For some reason Bell just didn't get on with this book but we will passed it on to her 10 year old cousin who loved it.

I didn't really like this book.  It was hard to read and I really struggled to get into it because of this my mum read it to me.
I found it quite dull and I couldn't enjoy it. It's a shame because when I heard about it I thought it would be good.
