Description: After rereading the second novel of Gordon Korman’s MacDonald Hall series, I do realise that while Go Jump in the Pool! is in many ways both as engaging and often as uproariously funny as This Can’t be Happening at MacDonald Hall!, as the first novel of the series, I have never (both then and now) found Go Jump in the Pool! quite as much of a personal favourite (and that also holds true if I compare Go Jump in the Pool! with the third instalment of the MacDonald Hall series, with Beware the Fish!). For albeit I certainly do very much love love love how both Bruno and Boots (as well as many of their classmates and even the girls of Miss Scrimmage’s Finishing School) tirelessly try to raise the necessary funds for a state of the art swimming pool for MacDonald Hall (with especially the fact that Miss Scrimmage’s Cathy Burton gives her cheque for a three thousand dollar first place bake-off wining prize to Bruno and Boots, for the MacDonald Hall pool fund, really always melting my heart), that entire scenario of Bruno and Boots (and of course classmate and financial whiz kid George Wexford-Smyth III) speculating on the stock market and raising well over twenty thousand dollars has always both felt more than a bit overly exaggerated (as well as rather boring to and for financially not all that interested me), not to mention that as an older adult rereading Go Jump in the Pool!, that Bruno and Boots are able to achieve their goals, that they are able to raise the necessary money for their school pool by using what can only be considered as insider trading information on a mining stock (to speculate and play the stock market), that does actually make me feel a trifle uncomfortable, as it is portrayed as considerably and entirely too positive a situation (an acceptable way to achieve an end) by Gordon Korman, and I for one would not in any way want young readers to consider that using insider information for financial gain and the like is to be lauded, or a to be imitated business practice. Three stars for Go Jump in the Pool! (but rounded up to four stars, as even with my mild criticisms and personal issues regarding especially the stock market speculation scenario, Go Jump in the Pool! is still very much a fun and diverting Bruno and Boots adventure, an entertaining and engaging so-called school story). Therefore also highly recommended, but just like with ALL of especially the earlier MacDonald Hall novels, I for one do strongly recommend and suggest reading the not currently in print original versions from the late 70s and early 80s and to steer well clear of the recent and in print editions, as they have been strangely and for in my opinion no particular in any manner good reason updated with regard to in particular technology (and yes, just like I have already mentioned in my review for This Can’t be Happening at MacDonald Hall!, it certainly does tend to feel quite strange and not particularly pleasant to read a late 1970s to early 1980s children’s school novel that is painted with a not all that natural and realistic veneer of 21st century technology).
