    One thought on “This Can't Be Happening at MacDonald Hall!”

    1. A fun and totally engaging Canadian-themed boys' boarding school story (and which was in fact originally penned by author Gordon Korman as a school writing project when he supposedly was only twelve years old), as young teenagers, my friends and I read This Can't be Happening at MacDonald Hall! (and post this, also a number of the sequels) over and over again, as they were quick reads and kept us smiling and laughing. But while for many of my classmates, Bruno and Boots, the two main protagonist [...]

    2. Korman's first novel, written when he was about fifteen. It's clearly unpolished, but there's something so frenzied and exuberant about it that it makes up for it. A wonderfully funny novel.

    3. What a childhood throwback!I was a voracious reader in my early years, but I'm sad to say that I can barely remember what books I enjoyed. Well, the MacDonald Hall adventures were one of them, and the magic is still there.Not sure how accurately I can review this, just because it's a 100 page children's book. Plot moves a lot quicker, characters are more two-dimensional, and description is minimal. But who cares; Bruno and Boots!Also, have I mentioned that the author was FOURTEEN when this book [...]

    4. Thanks to the public library, I was finally able to find out what people were talking about when they squeed about Bruno & Boots. Of course, soon after the fickle library gods betrayed me: only the first book is available, which is a TRAGEDY, because this series is clearly great, funny and delightful and truly squee-worthy. Note: I do not add "slashy," because while the book is, I feel uncomfortable slashing anyone who is, as Korman establishes, "not yet old enough to shave."However, the cov [...]

    5. YA. Boarding school hijinks. Best friends and roommates Bruno and Boots have been up to no good too many times and The Fish (headmaster of Macdonald Hall) is finally putting his foot down, separating Bruno and Boots and giving them new roommates. Bruno and Boots, by the way, are totally not down with that.This is a fun little book with capers, harmless riots, and a happy ending. The boys are troublemakers, but not overly malicious, and if the writing's a little simplistic all we need to do is re [...]

    6. The Bruno and Boots books by Gordon Korman were brilliant. I read them back when I was about 9 or 10 and enjoyed them so much I remember them fondly 18 years later. I'm thinking I might re-read them even.

    7. I had mistakenly thought this author wrote 39 Clues book #3, which I found disappointing, and was pleasantly surprised that this book was much better than I had originally hoped for. It's a Middlegrade novel so it's light, but I think my boy would enjoy the pranks and the humor.

    8. First introduced to this author when my grade 5 teacher read this aloud to us. I have been reading his work ever since.My children are now big enough that I started reading it to them. Sometimes it was hard to convince them that we should read together, but once we started I was usually asked if we could read another chapter.Finally finished today and we rolled right into the next Bruno and Boots book. Looks like they are going to be fans too.

    9. This didn't hold up, either. Which was kinda depressing, considering the way I read and reread this and half fell over, holding my sides, every single time.

    10. Canadian children's author Gordon Korman has had a long career as the prolific writer of humorous, exciting, and easy-to-read novels geared toward grades 4 to 9. He started writing at age 12, when he wrote This Can't Be Happening at MacDonald Hall! for a seventh grade English class. Over the course of nearly 20 years after the publication of this first MacDonald Hall book, Korman published a total of 7 titles about the boarding school exploits of best friends Bruno and Boots.This month, I read t [...]

    11. Review by Jacob Dunn 203Bruno and Boots (This can't be happening at Macdonald hall!)3.) Did you enjoy the book? Why? Why not?I found that the novel Bruno and Boots was really funny. I found that it was funny because it is all about Bruno and Boots playing practical jokes on students at their boarding school. An example is when they took hundreds of ants this guy collected and let them loose in the hallways and everybody went crazy. “The racket was beginning to penetrate into the other rooms. [...]

    12. A fun boarding-school hijinks book filled with silly pranks and entertaining mishaps. Lighthearted, simplistic, fun, an easy read. (And written by a thirteen-year-old, wow!)

    13. I was such a fan of Gordon Korman's early books, written when he was in his teens. They are hard to find now but I pick them up where I can and I've been sitting on a box set of the Bruno and Boots stories for a couple years. I pulled the first out today to see if my 10yo is ready for them and enjoyed a riotous, LOL filled 30 minutes. Like, actually laughing out loud, just like I remember doing when I read these as a kid. These early books may not be as well-crafted as Korman's newer ones, but I [...]

    14. This book is about two best friend trouble-makers who, after pulling "the last straw" are sentenced to never talk or greet each other again, joined with condemned roommates, and having the last of their privileges removed. Seeking a way out, they secretly meet and make shrewd and cunning plans, only to be discovered and put into more trouble. After getting into to much trouble, they discover the secret recipe to get them out of trouble; to be the angel. After saving the Ambassador's son, the boy [...]

    15. Bruno and Boots are mischievous but well meaning. They cause their headmaster endless upset, and after a particularly prodigious series of pranks, he separates them. They hate their new roommates and even worse, hate not rooming with each other, so they concoct plan after plan to get back to the way things were.Short and funny, perfect for preteen readers who'd like more Weasley Wizard Wheezes and the like.

    16. I read another book in this series when I was younger, but I had no idea it was a series. I thought it was a stand alone book. When I saw this one at the Red Cross book sale last week (on half price box day!!!) I couldn't resist. I liked it too. I wish I had read the whole series as a child because I know they would have been my favorites.

    17. I'm sure I read most of the MacDonald Hall series when I was a kid. Though I don't remember the specifics, I do remember rereading more than a few. And now, as an adult, I find out the books were written by a teenager? That would have been so cool to know when I was younger! In any case, these are silly, but well loved Canadian classics.

    18. A hilarious tale of two boys and their crazy antics in boarding school. Through their unusual bond and their quick thinking they are always getting into trouble that in the end things turn out just the way they want them to. A great addition to a school classroom library.

    19. Bruno and Boots meant so much to me when I was a kid. I thought it was hilarious at the time. I would love to read it again.

    20. This book is very entertaining. Although it is really geared to the pre-teen to early teen reader, I found it well written and it made me laugh out loud.

    21. This series was one of my favorite series back in the 80s, Gordan Korman was one of a very few Canadian authors I would read, having a university level reading skill in grade school these were a beneath my reading ability, but they were also enjoyable as a child. The fact felt the need to update these instead of keeping them the way they are disgusts me to no end. There was barely cable back in the 80s no internet and none of the High End modern items that are now found within this book. The Ti [...]

    22. This can’t be happening at macdonald hallThis book is really funny. It is one of my favorite book I read. I think this book is a good book

    23. Once a year I go back and re-read Gordon Korman's MacDonald Hall series and I'm always happy that I did.

    24. Bruno and Boots are roommates at a Canadian boarding school, and are always in trouble with the headmaster, Mr. Sturgeon, aka The Fish, for one thing or another. They replace the Canadian flag outside their dorm right before a big hockey game, steal the other team's mascot, and generally cause a ruckus wherever they go. Even though they are fairly good at covering their tracks, Mr. Sturgeon decides they have to be punished for their latest transgressions, and assigns the boys new roommates. Brun [...]
