It has taken me longer to review this book than I had planned. Why, you ask…because I couldn't wrestle it away from my children long enough to actually read it!
Strike of the Sweepers is the fourth book in Tyler Whitesides' Janitors series. I have to say that Whitesides has an incredible imagination. In each book I am always amazed at the ideas he comes up to "glopify" cleaning supplies - the rake was classic. That would come in handy for a couple of my children ;-).
Although my kids were super excited to read the "next" one, I will admit I wasn't all that thrilled. It seems like every author nowadays writes a series and most of them really shouldn't. After two or three books the story usually becomes repetitive and VERY predictable. I will admit I was expecting nothing less from this series. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The plot of course was predictable, but there were enough surprises thrown in to keep you guessing and make it enjoyable.While this probably isn't a "classic" - it is a good book for kids and adults who want a quick fun read.
