    1. I chose this book, because of the author, Gordan Korman, he's one of my favorite authors and I thought it would be interesting to read another book of his, because they are always funny and interesting. The Zucchini Warriors is about two boys named Bruno and Boots, and a couple of their friends, they all go to a school together called,"McDonald Hall." During their year there, they both experience many wacky problems and difficulties, such as a girl joining their football team, the Zucchini Warri [...]


    2. I legitimately remember owning this particular MacDonald Hall book, and enjoying the whole girls can play football too, dumb society plotline. Good series for the younger crowd to sink their teeth into, and Canadian to boot!


    3. My biggest triumph with this book: I got my 6th grade teacher to read it to the WHOLE CLASS on my recommendation!


    4. 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 Boots.This month, I read t [...]


    5. While it was an older-school book, it was just abut as interesting as some modern-day books in my opinion. While it started out a little slow, once you got into the action the book was hard to put down. No spoilers


    6. Gordon Korman at his best is a very funny guy (though for the most part he has not been at his best in the past 15 or 20 years, and for some reason the man who wrote some of the funniest books of the ’80s has spent much of that time wasting his talent on sports or adventure books): unfortunately, that talent is only sporadically visible in the Macdonald Hall series. The problem is that he wrote the first book, “This Can’t Be Happening at Macdonald Hall”, while he was the same age as its [...]


    7. Here is a book to tickle your funny bone. Bruno and Boots are back again and this time their aim is a new recreation room at MacDonald Hall. If they can assemble a winning football team they have a donor who will pay for the rec room. Henry (Hank the Tank) Carson is an alum and former Green Bay Packer (!) who has made his fortune selling zucchini sticks. So he underwrites the football team and treats everyone to free zucchini sticks all the time. Unfortunately, no one likes them. Crazy ways emer [...]


    8. Bruno and Boots are disappointed when they return to Macdonald Hall at the start of a new year; they were supposed to get a new recreation hall at their school, but instead a football stadium has been built. Former student/football player and zucchini entrepreneur Hank Carson makes them a deal, a winning football team will get them a rec hall, but unfortunately, Macdonald Hall’s team is horrible. But soon Bruno and Boots have a secret weapon that will ensure their wins: a girl!As a young reade [...]


    9. A Quickie ReviewGordon Korman was my favorite author as a kid, even more so than Roald Dahl and Judy Blume, though I did enjoy their works, too.  Though I never have been a sports fan, I read The Zucchini Warriors in fifth grade, and liked it.  However, reading it now made it feel slightly lackluster.  It does combine elements of a Disney Channel Original Movie and a Nickelodeon sitcom, and deserves praise for thatbut it still feels a little generic.  Nonetheless, fans of kiddie literature, [...]


    10. YA. Macdonald Hall gets a football team and their quarterback's a girl. Literally. This book is pretty one-note. Usually Bruno and Boots have a goal (Save Macdonald Hall!) and then have to overcome a series of obstacles by way of hair-brained schemes (Collect Pop Cans! Get Someone To Go On A Date! Steal Computer Paper!) in order to achieve that goal. Here they play football. A lot. Plus Elmer's weirdly out of character (purposely, yes; realistically? no). But this book did one thing for me. I ca [...]


    11. This isn't quite as funny or creative as the other Bruno and Boots books, but it's still a lot of fun! The characters are as fun as ever and the deadpan humor is ever-present. I especially like the spelling errors on the scoreboard(**ZICTORY!**)and the misunderstanding that almost leads to Mr. Sturgeon being arrested. I also love that Cathy Burton was given such a significant role in this book, since she's such a great character! "The Zucchini Warriors" is not my favorite of the series(the earli [...]


    12. This was one of Gordon Korman's first series that he started at the age of 12 -- pretty impressive! However, there was nothing special about it and it is dated, although our library still has it. His picture in the back is quite different from today, as well! But I wanted to read it to see what his early works were like as compared to his later series like Swindle and Zoobreak which were much better.


    13. Over the Summer, Henry Carson bought a new football stadium. Bruno and Boots were not pleased because instead they wanted a recreation hall. So Bruno and Boots decided to make a deal with Mr.Carson. If kids join the football team and win they're games, they will get a recreation hall.I picked this book up because I like the MacDonald Hall series so far.I finished this book because I wanted to see what would happen next.I would recommend this book to Katie, because she likes humor.


    14. Fun story. A little dated (it's from 1988); I took some exception to how the girls' school is portrayed as pearl clutching, gasping weanies. Other than that, there is ample comedy in the story, and the boys show a great deal of loyalty to one another, even if they don't particularly like everyone. There is a fun, movie-like climactic ending with mayhem that will make readers chuckle!


    15. This isn't one of Korman's best, but it's still a good book. In fact, it's so well-written that I didn't realize until several chapters in that it was the 5th in the series. I like the way he pulls all of the side-stories together in an unpredictable way.


    16. What would you think if a girl wanted to play football? This is a book about 'soft' discrimination about girls. And strange hampsters, principals, yucky zukinni sticks and much more.Overall a good book.


    17. As good the 254th time as it was the first, enduringly funny and very, very sweet. Korman has a great way of setting you up for the downward spiral, like classical Greek comedy only you know, with Manchurian bush hamsters.








    18. I thought this book was a good read. It got boring at times and the plot wasnt the greatest but i would still reccommend this to anyone looking for a funny book.







    19. My absolute favorite young adult fiction writer ever! His books are witty, appropriate and great adventure stories for young adults.
