Nick Allen is a fifth grader, a good kid, maybe a little bit of a troublemaker. His new English teacher, Mrs. Granger, is no nonsense. So Nick decides to push her a little bit about one of her favorite things--the dictionary and the importance of words and language. He invents the word "frindle" to use instead of pen, and enlists all of his friends to use it, too. Before Nick knows it, his new word is sweeping the nation! He finally got the upper hand on Mrs. Granger! or did he? This is a great school story about a boy, a teacher, some initiative, and how things can get out of hand in a good way as well as a bad way. I don't know anyone who doesn't like this story! After you read Frindle, you'll want to read more Andrew Clements books.
