A page-turner from the beginning
The Janitors: Curse of the Broomstaff is a book about two kids that set out on a quest to save education and in the long run the world from evil creatures called toxites.They have a group of friends that include a garboligist named Bernard, a toxite scientist named Alan, a warlock named walter, and a weapons specialist named Penny.Together they use mops, brooms, and other janitorial equipment to destroy the toxites and save education. Those supplies might sound harmless but when Walter and Penny taint them with a magical substance called glop these seemingly harmless items gain special powers and are the weapon of choice for these heros. I liked how Tyler Whitesides used a common item like trash and turned it into a beast.My favorite part was when they first met Bernard and he was licking the trash and he told them what was going on in the Zumbro house hold. At first Spencer thinks that he is a spy but by the end Bernard is like a father to them.This is the third time Tyler Whitesides has blown my mind and I can’t wait for the next book.I think kids from 8-12 will like this book because it is interesting and is a page turner from the beginning. I rate this book 5-5 stars and I truly recommend that you read this book and then you too will never look at a mop or a broom the same.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
