Overview

Janitors #3: Curse of the Broomstaff by Tyler Whitesides


The secret society of janitors with wizard-like powers continue the battle, but now, the stakes are even higher. The Bureau of Educational Maintenance is after Alan Zumbro, and this time the evildoers mean business--deadly business. Spencer, Daisy, and their little team of Rebels must find the source of all magical Glop and destroy it before it can destroy the world as we know it. No small task with the BEM and its monster Toxites at their heels!

It's a wild and dangerous ride as Spencer's friends follow the trail of clues all the way to the hiding place of the mysterious Aurans: guardians of a secret landfill. What they discover there will change the fate of the Rebels--and quite possibly that of the world.

This is the third installment in the Janitors series. Spencer and Daisy meet some new characters and connect with some old ones as well. The dangers are bigger and the stakes higher. The BEM is more powerful than ever and is always one step ahead. This time however, Spencer and his friends find a key piece of evidence that answers a lot of their questions. It also sets them on a course to end toxites once and for all. This is a fun series, and I know a lot of kids like it. The books are well written, nicely paced, action packed, and full of humor. The perfect recipe for a good middle grade fantasy. Content: some violence Source: I received a digital galley of this book in exchange for an honest review.

As I have stated so many times before, fantasies are not often my thing.  This is the third book in the series, and I have not as yet read the first two.  But this is definitely a stand-alone book, so don't let that keep you from enjoying this book.  Even though this book is not my genre of preference, I can still recognize several things that lead to such a positive review from me. First of all, there is no profanity and no inappropriate scenes.  All "violence" is cartoonish and not scary.  I find it ironic to call a book about garbage "clean."  But indeed it is!  I am quite sure this book would appeal to my daughter in a couple of years, and I can hope that she will make the time to read the series eventually. Secondly, the story is imaginative and has redeeming qualities.  Good triumphs over evil, and I can only hope that another book will be forthcoming.  The fact that the setting is school-related makes the book even more intriguing--especially to the younger set. So what were my complaints?  I found the story rather tiresome at times, but the chapters were short.  This made the dragging story much more bearable.  Even though the book is able to be comprehended without the first two books, I would have liked a little more detail about why this ongoing war was occurring.  I also struggled to become emotionally involved with the story and the characters, but that probably goes back to my disinterest in fantasy novels.  In short, my complaints are few, and for all practical purposes, this is an ideal young adult fantasy. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

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. Review by Mason H., age 11, Denver Mensa
