Blog Tour - Janitors Book 4: Strike of the Sweepers

About the book: "In five minutes," Walter said, "I'm going to use this squeegee to open a portal to New Forest Academy. We're going to move in and apprehend Director Carlos Garcia."

Spencer's surprised look mirrored Daisy's. Penny looked excited and Alan simply nodded.

"Tonight we finish what we almost did last November," Alan said. "We're taking the warlock's hammer and nail."

The stakes have never been higher, and you've never seen squeegees do this before! It is a wild and slightly unsanitary ride as Spencer, Daisy, and the Rebel Janitors find themselves chased by Mr. Clean's new and terrifying half-breed Toxites—the Sweepers. Time is short. With the fabled Manualis Custodem in hand, Spencer must figure out how to summon the Founding Witches if they ever hope to mop up and save education.

My Review: Wow, I really enjoyed this book! I love that this is a middle grade series that appeals to both boys and girls, our daughters have been begging me to finish so that they could read it! I love the characters in this series, I love that they are strong characters that know how to do hard things, even when there are no adults available to help them with what is needed. The plot is great, full of action, adventure, and imagination. This series teaches kids that even the most mundane things, like dustpans and brooms, can be amazing in your imagination. I really believe that kids today need that, they need to use their imaginations instead of just playing the latest video game or whatever on their phone or iPod. Thanks to Tyler Whitesides for an amazing series that appeals to the kid in all of us!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
