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 BootsThis month I read them all This Can t Be Happening at MacDonald Hall 1977 Go Jump in the Pool 1979 Beware the Fish 1980 The War with Mr Wizzle 1982 The Zucchini Warriors 1988 MacDonald Hall Goes Hollywood 1991 Something Fishy at Macdonald Hall 1995The series stars best friends and roommates Bruno Walton and Melvin Boots O Neal who are known pranksters on the MacDonald Hall campus Though the two boys often butt heads with their headmaster the long suffering yet fair minded Mr Sturgeon whom they call The Fish they also have a fond affection for their school The boys and their classmates also have many associations with students at Miss Scrimmage s Finishing School for Young Ladies which is located across the road from MacDonald Hall and whose high strung Headmistress freuently overreacts to late night visits from MacDonald Hall students by wildly wielding a shotgun Each book of the series focuses on a different major scheme involving Bruno and Boots Sometimes they seek to make a particular improvement to their school such as a pool or a recreation center Other times they go to war with a particular teacher who is making their lives difficult or with an outside force that threatens to close the school In the final two books they even befriend a Hollywood celebrity and uncover a phantom prankster What I love about these books is their sense of humor Last spring I attended a talk by two children s illustrators who insisted that the key to humor in children s books is underwear and toilet jokes I found this to be a disappointing underestimation of what kids are capable of finding funny but I was also hard pressed to think of many examples of funny books especially funny books targeted at boys that could make kids laugh without resorting to crude humor Thankfully I have been reminded that this series fits that bill exactly Perhaps because Korman started writing these when he was himself an adolescent he completely understands what middle school boys find funny and he delivers it in every single book Pranks schemes disasters explosions science experiments sporting events these are the backdrops for Korman s jokes and most of the time they are clever respectful and well executed Even when the characters disobey their teachers they often do so in the name of a noble cause that helps their school or their friends Also refreshing is the complete lack of serious dating in these books There are some storylines involving long distance and unreuited crushes but none of the preoccupation with having exclusive girlfriends and boyfriends that seems prevalent in contemporary books The girls of Miss Scrimmage s particularly Cathy and Diane are not presented as potential romantic partners for Bruno Boots and their friends but as partners in crime good friends and pranksters in their own right All the female characters are actually very well done including Mrs Sturgeon the headmaster s wife whose affection for Bruno and Boots often keeps her husband from acting rashly in his punishment of them Are the MacDonald Hall books great literature Probably not But neither are they to be completely dismissed as fluff or twaddle For boys who like funny books but whose parents would prefer not to promote toilet humor or worse crude jokes with a sexual basis they are the perfect escapist read Interestingly these books have also recently been turned into a series of films which are all available to stream on Netflix I watched half of the first one Go Jump in the Pool and noted some differences mainly in the age of the characters MacDonald Hall seems to be a high school in the movie world and in the character of Miss Scrimmage who is now a peace loving hippie and not an unhinged woman with a shotgun but overall I didn t think it was terrible I would definitely recommend reading the books first but fans of the series will probably enjoy the film adaptationsThis review also appears on my blog Read at Home Mom

CHARACTERS The War With Mr. Wizzle

FREE DOWNLOAD ☆ The War With Mr. Wizzle CHARACTERS The War With Mr. Wizzle Walter C Wizzle and and his computer are trying to take over Macdonald Hall Wizzle is making everyone wear a tie and is giving out demerits and detentions like they're going out of style Bruno and boots have had enough If The Fish Headmaster Sturgeon won. Although I was at first a bit disappointed that I never managed to read the fourth of Gordon Korman s MacDonald Hall novels as a teenager in retrospect I am actually than a bit glad as I have certainly not all that much enjoyed The War With Mr Wizzle and frankly if I had indeed read this novel in 1982 when The War With Mr Wizzle was originally published it might very well also have tainted my prior enjoyment and appreciation of This Can t Be Happening at MacDonald Hall Go Jump in the Pool and Beware the Fish For to be honest while main antagonists and arch villains Miss Peabody and Mr Wizzle do at least mildly and on the surface rather painfully remind me of some of the overbearing and dictatorial teachers I had to endure in especially some of my Junior High classes and that pertains especially to one of my physical education instructors who with her obsession with running laps and aerobic exercising certainly does rather mirror Miss Peabody at least to a point most of the scenarios portrayed in The War With Mr Wizzle and especially the character traits often Gestaspo like attitudes and behaviours of Mr Wizzle and Miss Peabody are simply too outrageously stereotypical and over done to be either entertaining or realistic And really while in a private boarding school like MacDonald Hall a teacher an assistant school official or in Miss Peabody s case an assistant principal might indeed be able to get away with heavy handedly doling out massive amounts of demerit points and draconian punishments for even minor mistakes and peccadilloes I honestly cannot imagine that either students or indeed parents would accept having said individuals forcibly change a student s surname so as for it to be computer efficient such as how Mr Wizzle with no criticism allowed simply changes Wilbur Hackenschleimer s surname to Hacken or that the families of Miss Scrimmage s Finishing School girls would without comment and concern simply accept Miss Peabody s constant insults and put downs of their daughters and the introduction of actual war games So therefore while The War With Mr Wizzle has certainly been entertaining to a certain extent the humour fun and camaraderie of the first three MacDonald Hall novels and that both MacDonald Hall and Miss Scrimmage students clearly and dearly love and cherish their respective academies that has not really all that much come through for me in The War With Mr Wizzle with even the wedding of Mr Wizzle and Miss Peabody at the end leaving me unbelieving and cold although I guess I did kind of cheer the fact that by having the evil duo wed they have now been permanently removed from their respective schools and the schools from their nefarious influence And thus only a very grudging and low three stars for The War With Mr Wizzle and indeed I am most definitely than a bit personally disappointed as I was certainly expecting much and a much better and less blatantly stereotypical story so much so that I also have to now consider whether this novel whether The War With Mr Wizzle is a one time glitch with regard to Gordon Korman s Macdonald Hallboarding school series or whether the remaining three stories will also be a disappointment

    (EBOOK / KINDLE) The War With Mr. Wizzle AUTHOR Gordon Korman Still a fun read but this one felt kind of sloppy For example Mr Sturgeon's wife Mildred has always been a sensible person and she has always stood up for the boys but in this book she's constantly telling her husband to give Wizzle a chance even after countless examples of Wizzle causing nothing but trouble for the school and the boys In previous books she was a character; in this book she was just a voice of contention to give Mr Sturgeo
