Mark stood up and placed his tray on the kitchen conveyor belt. "I'd better get going," he told the group. "I want to get a picture of Sir John A. in the scuba suit for the school paper. I've got the perfect headline : 'Something Fishy at Macdonald Hall."

"Something's always fishy at Macdonald Hall," grumbled Wilbur. "Namely the guy who runs the place."

Overview

Mark stood up and placed his tray on the kitchen conveyor belt. "I'd better get going," he told the group. "I want to get a picture of Sir John A. in the scuba suit for the school paper. I've got the perfect headline : 'Something Fishy at Macdonald Hall."

"Something's always fishy at Macdonald Hall," grumbled Wilbur. "Namely the guy who runs the place."

Boots snapped to attention. "The Fish! Hey Bruno, you don't think he's going to blame it on us, do you?"

"Why would he do that?" asked Bruno absently. "For the same reason everybody else did -- it's always us!"

Editorial Reviews

The ALAN Review - Wendy H. Bell
Fans of Bruno and Boots will welcome the latest in Gordon Korman's series, but for many first-time readers, this is definitely a "No-Brainer." The redoubtable duo faces competition from Boots' younger brother, Edward, who threatens to top every prank and escapade they dream up with better ones of his own. To make matters worse, he also has captured the hearts along with the undivided attention of the girls next door at Miss Scrimmage's Finishing School. Although Korman's fast pace keeps the action moving, the episodes are too often silly and implausible. Easy to read, the book should appeal to early middle graders.
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Bruno and Boots, practical jokers extraordinaire at a Canadian boarding school, return in this seventh book starring the popular duo. Just as headmaster William ``The Fish'' Sturgeon considers retiring because there are no surprises left at Macdonald Hall, a wave of pranks opens the school year, from water balloons bursting in science class to blue dye in the swimming pool. Fingers point to Bruno and Boots as the prime suspects, but this time it's a phantom practical joker who is to blame. As their gags come back to haunt them, the roommates must find out who is trying to frame them and why. When the identity of the true culprit is revealed, readers will be just as surprised as Bruno and Boots. Fans of the series will delight in another tale of madcap humor, peopled with some of the funniest, most ridiculous adults in middle-grade fiction.-Connie Tyrrell Burns, Mahoney Middle School, South Portland, ME
