Book Review of Janitors: Curse of the Broomstaff (Book #3) by Tyler Whitesides

Yay! Book #3 in the Janitors series by Tyler Whitesides is finally here! My boys and I have been waiting and waiting for this book! We loved the first two books so much so we had high expectations for this book! Will our favorite characters be back? What kind of trash will be in this book? Will the janitors prevail or will the toxites take over all the schools? Well, finally the wait is over!! I’d like to present Janitors: Curse of the Broomstaff (Book #3) by Tyler Whitesides!


A Message from the Author:
Dear Reader,
   Here it is: the third installment in the JANITORS series. And I must admit, this is definitely the trashiest book I’ve ever written. No, literally. This book is full of garbage. This time, our young heroes must venture deep into an enchanted landfill. They will battle heaps of living garbage and hike through distorted trashscapes as they discover a mysterious group of kids living among the refuse, harboring a centuries-old secret that could save the future of education.

My Book Review:

First of all, notice the girl on the cover? Didn’t I say when I reviewed book #2 that the covers needed to be a little more girl-friendly? Well……it looks like they listened! My boys have been so excited for this book to come out. They have been counting down the days. And, when I received the book they begged me to let them read it first. Hahaha….sometimes it pays to be the mom. I got to read it first. Don’t worry, though, they’ll both have it read in about three days. Maybe two.
Out of all the Janitors books, this one is my favorite so far. I thought there was plenty of action, lots of surprises, and yes…..tons of garbage. Yuck! I’m not sure how the germ-a-phobe Spencer made it through this book with all the germs crawling around the landfill, but he did. His character grew a lot in this book. He had to mature a little, which is sad, but fun to watch. He’s always been quite mature for his age, but in this book he learns a lot about himself, his dad, and his abilities.
Daisy is always a fun character, and I love Penny. I actually came to really like Barnard as well. He’s a fun addition to the Rebels. I liked the path the Rebels had to follow by figuring out clues, and I thought it was clever how it fit in with them getting into the landfill. I’m still not sure about the Aurans. Are they good? Are they bad? And the Pluggers…..oh they’re scary! I definitely do not want to meet one of those in person. I thought Mr. Whitesides’ writing improved in this book. I liked the interesting creatures they met in the landfill, and I liked the creativeness of the landfill turning over. Where can I get a glopified broom? Oh, and a plunger? That would come in handy when I want to vacuum under the couch!
This book is clean besides some scenes where the characters fight the BEM members and their huge toxites. They also fight some garbage. Yep, I’m very glad I don’t have glopified garbage….I don’t want to worry about it coming to get me while I’m sleeping. If you liked the first two books, you’re probably drooling over the third one like my boys are. You’ll love it.
