This Can't Be Happening at MacDonald Hall

I heart Gordon Korman. I really, really do. I love Bruno and Boots. So I was thrilled when I started spying some Bruno and Boots books in thift stores and quickly snatched them up. Quite appropriately This Can't Be Happening at MacDonald Hall was the first one I found.

This is what you need to know. MacDonald Hall is a fictional boarding school in Ontario.  It's headmaster is Mr. Sturgeon, aka The Fish. Across the road is Miss Scrimage's Finishing School For Young Ladies. Bruno and Boots are two the school's worst (best?) troublemakers. They receive the ultimate punishment when they are split up, given new roommates and are told they are no longer allowed to associate with each other. Being Bruno and Boots though they don't go down without a show of resistance. They decide that their best course of action is to make their new roommates hate them so much that The Fish will have no choice but to put them together.

Love these books. Love. I must love them. I recently did the math and I've been reading them for at least twenty years. (OMG! AM OLD!)

If you haven't read the Bruno and Boots books you must. Korman is good with the funny. Oh yeah, he was TWELVE when he wrote the first one.
