Janitors by Tyler Whitesides

The janitors at Welcher Elementary School know a secret, and twelve-year-old Spencer Zumbro is the only one who can lead the charge against them and their evil plan. With the help of classmate Daisy "Gullible" Gates, Spencer sets out to discover who can trusted, and who cannot. The discovery of the truth might just save his school, and perhaps the world!

First-time author, Tyler Whitesides brings some of his own experience as a school janitor to the writing of this first book in a series perfect for elementary students. As Spencer and Daisy discover in their fight against crime, Tyler learned first-hand about the battle against the Toxites: Grime, Filth and Rubbish.

But don't expect this battle to be easy for Spencer. Fighting off janitors can be dirty work, and only those who are willing to put their hands to a mop even stand a chance of coming out unscathed.

Janitors captures the voice of a true sixth grader, and is perfect for a classroom read aloud. Kids will not be disappointed, and they will be begging for more.
