Here is the summary of the book:
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.
Education is important..... Institution is important.... and to make sure that the educational institutions are in working order.... Janitors too are very important...... Without the janitors to fight the evils of 'Grime, Filth & Rubbish', the state of education would crash and empires would crumble into smithereens..... Who would have though that Janitors actually were that important to the state of education.
But Tyler Whitesides does that beautifully. Janitors is the first book of a trilogy of the same name. With normal elementary school janitors playing the role of the mystical guardians of education mopping, dusting, plunging out the grime, filth and rubbish, aka brain waves sucking creatures classified as Toxites rendering the learning abilities of kids null and void if unchecked.
Whitesides gives a paranormalistic twist to Janitors in his story with the antagonist in the form of an evil organization looking to control education of the country under their thumb and a group of rebel Janitors as the good guys on one side fighting tooth and nail to protect the education of kids, and two 12 year olds, Spencer Zumbro and Daisy Gates find themselves a part of the good team.
Spencer Zumbro & Daisy Gates. The former, with an annoying dose of OCD, a clean freak and the the latter known as Gullible Gates, believing in almost every outlandish things anybody would tell her. But both of them form a tight team of determined children. An amusing and hilariously silly adventure, Tyler Whitesides' Janitors although focused for a juvenile reader with the much desired action and adventure of the genre, also provides the strong moral for young children - "education is important" and that is something adults would find very good about here. The world building is also very well done, providing a solid background to his tale of warlock Janitors.
"Janitors - The warlocks protecting education..... oh you would never look a Janitor the same after this.... I HIGHLY RECOMMEND"
