Aspen Attles is your regular 3rd grader; she studies, goes to school, has a curious imagination, and, from time to time, saves friends and family from some of the most uncomfortable situations possible.
Aspen attempts to thwart the newly hired School Nutrition Director, Mr. Mean Cuisine, who prepares the nastiest food L. Kanner Elementary has ever dined on. She cannot sit idly by as the sanctity of Mac ‘N Cheese Thursday is completely ruined! Not to mention the whole robo-fication thing that is happening around town to everyone who can somehow hold down his food.
With the wit and knowledge of her best friend Mr. Bibby, and the courage of her newly found friend Hugh, Aspen is determined to save her school and return its lunch menu to its former glory.
