A secret society of Janitors with wizard-like powers continue their battle, and now, the stakes are even higher. The Bureau of Educational Maintenance is after Alan Zumbro and this time they mean business - deadly business. Spencer, Daisy, and their little team of rebels must find the source of all magical Glop and destroy it before it can destroy the world as we know it. No small task with the BEM and their monster toxites at their heels. It's a wild and dangerous ride as they follow the trail of clues all the way to the hiding place of the mysterious aurans: guardians of a secret landfill. What they discover there will change the way Spencer sees himself, not to mention the fate of the rebels.
Have I mentioned my love for Juvenile Fiction? I must has mentioned it a time or two. This whole Janitor series gets me excited to read these three books to my kids. They might be a little young for it, but I think I'm going to try anyway. All of the books are clean and fun.
Curse of the Broomstaff has Spencer discovering new abilities, reforming old friendships, making new allies, and having to deal with his germaphobia in the middle of a landfill, and bathroom, and lunchroom. Daisy stays sweet but a little less naive and more deadly with her cleaning supplies. I have a harder time relating to Spencer because I'm not a 12 year old boy (don't get me wrong, he's a great character, it just that...well, I'm not a boy, and I honestly think young boys are weird) but Daisy, she's a character that just makes me smile. While people may make fun of her and ignore her and her random thoughts, I think she's got things figured out pretty well. She definitely knows what it takes to be a loyal friend.
It doesn't seem to be the final book in the series like I thought it would be, so the problem is I now have to wait for the next book to come out...sigh. But if you are looking for good books for your kids to read, or if you are like me and just enjoy Juvenile Fiction, then this is a great series for you to try out.
