Janitors Series by Tyler Whitesides *Review

I had my 18 year old read and check these books out for me as I was just getting too far behind. He loves this style of book, and though a bit young for him, he really enjoyed it.
What a unique character.. a Janitor. I personally thought that was way cool, and so did my son.

He really enjoyed this series and thought it would be good for middle school age kids who enjoy reading. There are a lot of pages, and if your child isn't a 'reader', that may scare them off. These are fantasy style books, great for keeping the interest of middle schoolers. There was a lot of magic and wizardry in them, so be aware if that is something your family doesn't read.

Janitors Book 1

The magical, secretive society of JANITORS will sweep the country in the fall of 2011. Have you ever fallen asleep during math class? Are you easily distracted while listening to your English teacher? Do you find yourself completely uninterested in geography? Well, it may not be your fault. The janitors at Welcher Elementary know a secret, and it s draining all the smarts out of the kids. Twelveyear- old Spencer Zumbro, with the help of his classmate Daisy Gullible Gates, must fight with and against a secret, janitorial society that wields wizard-like powers. Who can Spencer and Daisy trust and how will they protect their school and possibly the world? Janitors is book 1 in a new children s fantasy series by debut novelist Tyler Whitesides. You ll never look at a mop the same way again
Janitors Book 2 :Secrets of New Forest Academy

Now, more than ever, Spencer, Daisy, and even Dez must fight to save schools everywhere. The Bureau of Educational Maintenance (BEM) is after Spencer, and the only place he is safe is within the walls of the New Forest Academy. Or so he thinks.
