Janitors should be cleaned up and dropped from the list

I found this book too slow and targeted to younger audience but with a fairly dark theme. Too young for me and too dark for children. By too young I'm referring to the language and the constant explaining that was redundant. It was also not as interesting or captivating as I was hoping

There is a reason why kids have a hard time studying.
There is a reason why kids fall asleep during school.
There is a reason why kids get distracted at school.
And it's NOT the kids fault.

Crazy creatures run around the school secretly causing all kinds of problems. They have been unseen until the day that Spencer accidentally used the magic soap.

Now he can see them. And he learns that the janitors have been there all along helping in the fight.

Join Spencer and Daisy as they train with the janitors to help protect the school and the kids who attend there.

PERFECT for the whole family!

Had a great time getting caught up in the book.
Can't wait for book 2.

Surprising fun!

I am so excited about this book! I honestly enjoyed it far more than I expected. May I embarrassingly admit that I wasn't expecting much? I am embarrassed.

Janitors is full of surprising turns and unexpected outcomes. My children were constantly asking for, "just one more chapter!" Mr. Whitesides has a bright future ahead as an author and we will continue to look forward to reading his books. For now, start with Janitors and prepare to enjoy it with your children!

Absolutely recommend this!

Probably one of the best pre-teen or teen book I have read. Not only were the young heroes interesting, smart, and resourceful, but the adults weren't portrayed as stupid, mean, or ignorant. They were careful of the children's safety, and the parents were loving and supportive. Whitesides captures the interest and imagination, and I would give anything he writes to my children to read.

First line:
"Spencer shifted the papers on his school desk and looked for a hundredth time at the graffiti in the corner."

I read Tyler's book to my kids at bedtime. Every night they were adamant we read it even at 11 PM (which I nixed)!
They loved the characters, cleaning weapons and Toxites. My son wants to take it to school so his teacher can read it to the class. That's a huge compliment!

I loved the clean, fast-paced writing. Lots of twists and play on words. With the tagline: 'you'll never look at a mop the same way again' Tyler is not kidding!
The story kept us hooked from beginning to surprise ending.

Not very happy with the cliffhangers, Mr. Whitesides! Did not see that one coming. My kids even gasped when I read it!
Keep up the good work, Tyler! We are anxiously awaiting the second book. Even though I'm still mad at you for the cliffhanger...

This is a great and exciting book that I would definitely recommend to young teens. It is an easy and captivating read. I sure wish I had a glopified mop!
