about

Gordon Korman's classic, bestselling series celebrates its 35th anniversary!

Macdonald Hall's ivy-covered buildings have housed and educated many fine young Canadians. But Bruno Walton and Boots O'Neal are far from being fine young Canadians. The roommates and best friends are nothing but trouble! Together they've snuck out after lights-out, swapped flags, kidnapped mascots . . . and that's only the beginning.

Bruno and Boots are always in trouble. So the headmaster, a.k.a. "The Fish," decides it would be best to separate them. Bruno must now room with ghoulish Elmer Drimsdale, plus his plants, goldfish and ants. And Boots is stuck with nerdy, preppy, paranoid George Wexford-Smyth III.Of course, this means war. Because Bruno and Boots are determined to get their old room back, no matter what it takes.

Join two of Gordon Korman's most memorable characters in seven side-splitting, rip-roaring adventures! Macdonald Hall is the series that started it all, and thirty-five years later it remains a must-read for old fans and new, the young - and the young at heart.

Gordon Korman wrote his first novel, This Can't Be Happening at Macdonald Hall!, when he was only 12 years old. To date Gordon has written 70 middle-grade and YA novels, including two titles in the #1 New York Times bestselling series The 39 Clues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never gets old! Bruno and Boots never get old, they just stay hilarious! This is the first book of the Macdonald Hall series, and one that I have read multiple times over the years. It was funny as a kid, and it remains funny as an adult. The antics are balanced by the pure intentions, the peek behind the scenes at the strict headmaster, and the fun assortment of characters. Well worth reading and re-reading!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favourites as a kid!!!! With characters I could count on and plot that left me with the giggles Bruno and Boots never failed to entertain. My 11 yr old son is now reading MY original copies and enjoying them as much as I did.
