Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 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

From Booklist

Gr. 4^-6. The fact that this is the seventh book about Bruno and Boots, roommates and troublemakers at Macdonald Hall boarding school, indicates that boarding-school fiction is a hardy perennial. The plot is tried-and-true: rules are bent and broken, and there's sneaking around after dark. This year, however, there's another prankster at school, and Boots and Bruno spend most of the time trying to prove their innocence by finding the guilty party. Incidents move along rapidly, and the lack of substance won't deter a reluctant reader in search of laughs.

As great as it is to see Bruno and Boots again, and even see the tables turned on them, there was something lacking in this episode. Perhaps it was a stretch for something a little different. Bruno & Boots are confused by a mysterious "Phantom" practical joker, for whose pranks they are being blamed by default. They spend less time spiritedly plotting and planning than usual,however,and more time baffled and bewildered. Likewise, their partners in crime, Cathy & Diane, are confronted with "increased security" at Scrimmage's, and find themselves more frustrated than inspired to ingenuity. They are victims here, and while it is certainly different, it is much less fun. While the gang is all here --- Wilbur, Mark, Sidney & Co. --- even they seem a little tired of the routine. The appearance of Boots' younger brother is promising, but probably not as well developed as it could be. However, a Bruno and Boots volume is not to be missed, and this one is no exception. Elmer's foray into romance is alone worth the time!
