What will the kids of Lincoln School do without their health-conscious lunch lady? When Harriet goes on a much-needed vacation, the principal, Mr. Fitz, hires cook after cook, each one more outrageous than the next, but none can replace their beloved Harriet. The students – and principal – send postcards, letters, drawings, email, and telegrams detailing the various chefs’ outlandish meals in hopes of convincing Harriet to return. But will this lunch lady leave her tropical paradise to save the day?
