Janitors5 books in series
Every kid dreams of having special powers, but it turns out it’s not all that it’s cracked up to be for Spencer Zumbro - the only kid who sees the strange creatures taking over his school.
Spencer Zumbro can see the creatures prowling around Welcher Elementary School after his fellow students, but there’s a problem - no one else believes him. But when Spencer sees one of the janitors going after a creature with a vacuum, he knows that he’s not the only one. Together with his friend Daisy, Spencer must find out what the janitors know and discover the secrets of the creatures stalking the halls. As he and his friends learn more, the battle only gets more complicated and dangerous.
Tyler Whitesides, author of the Janitors series, brings his own scary story masterfully to life. The benefit of an author-narrated audiobook is that each word can be given the emphasis and tone the author intended. With a clear and mellow voice, Whitesides’s performance makes Spencer’s world of magic and danger become real.
Whitesides spent his childhood outdoors, imagining adventures, and immersed in the world of books as an avid reader. The idea for Janitors came while Whitesides was in college, working part time as a middle school night janitor. As he wandered the empty halls, he began imagining stories that eventually became his debut novel, Janitors. After getting the first book published, Whitesides went on to develop his universe and create four more installments.
Described by Publishers Weekly as “action-packed and surprising!”, Janitors has been recognized with several awards, including the 2011 Mom's Choice Award.
