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.

Macdonald Hall has been chosen as the ideal setting for a Hollywood movie with superstar Jordie Jones! But when Bruno Walton and Boots O'Neal discover that the star just wants to be a normal guy, one who plays hockey, hangs out with friends and goes to dances, they decide to help Jordie out. Who would have guessed that a simple favour could go so wrong, so fast?

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.
