Beware of the Fish by Gordan Korman: a Review

"Beware of the Fish" by Gordan Korman: A Review

'Beware The Fish' is one of the funniest books I have ever read in my life. It is about two boys named Bruno and Boots who go to a boarding school called 'Macdonald Hall'. Their headmaster is a grim man named Mr. Sturgeon(a.k.a 'The Fish'. A sturgeon is a kind of fish.) It all started when Elmer Drimsdale, school genius invented somethingthat is sort of like a television broadcaster. He didn't know it really worked!!!!

When Bruno and Boots found out their school was broke and needed more money, Bruno began to think up schemes to put their school on the map.All his attempts seemed to fail, so he vented his anger on the television broadcaster, not knowing it actually worked. He accidentally

broadcasted many announcements,
declaring 'The Fish' will seek his revenge. During these broadcasts, the video camera was focused on a poster of a salmon.
The police thinks that these are warning from a group of killers,Bruno is desperately running out of ideas, Boot's is being dragged along inevery crazy scheme Bruno and the rest of the boy at Macdonald Hall dive headfirst into, the headmaster at the girls school next door thinks that the boys at Macdonald Hall are 'hooligans terrorizing my poor girls' (whoare actually on the boys side. (Even if the guys tried to terrorize them,they'd beat them to a pulp.) And poor Mr. Sturgeon has no idea whats goingon. If you think that's weird, wait'll you see what Bruno does next.

I think that this book is a really crazy book with really funny characters. A few other books are also written about Bruno and Boots , BUT I DON'T THINK THEY WOULD BE AS GOOD AS THIS ONE! those crazy, crazy teenagers
