This Can't Be Happening at MacDonald Hall! by Gordon Korman

My mom ordered me this series for my birthday.  She said she read them as a kid and that she thought I would like them.  I've read the first three already and I am just starting the fourth.

The first book introduces Bruno and Boots, two best friends who attend the boarding school, MacDonald Hall.  Bruno is a natural-born troublemaker who comes up with all kinds of schemes.  Boots is more cautious, but gets dragged along into Bruno's plans.

When Headmaster Sturgeon decides it is time to split them up, Bruno and Boots will do anything to get their old room back.  From practical jokes to crazy schemes, they will stop at nothing, but will they go too far?

I really enjoyed this book!  I loved all the pranks and practical jokes Bruno and Boots played on their new roommates.  One of my favorite pranks is when Bruno decides to become a "skunkologist" and keeps a pet skunk in his room. I liked how, no matter what happened, Bruno had a new plan, while Boots tried to play it safe, and that they could always get the girls at Miss Scimmage's School to help.

As I finish reading the different books, my mom and I are going to watch the new Bruno and Boots movies too.
