About this ebook

Is Nick Allen a troublemaker?
He really just likes to liven things up at school -- and he's always had plenty of great ideas. When Nick learns some interesting information about how words are created, suddenly he's got the inspiration for his best plan ever...the frindle. Who says a pen has to be called a pen? Why not call it a frindle? Things begin innocently enough as Nick gets his friends to use the new word. Then other people in town start saying frindle. Soon the school is in an uproar, and Nick has become a local hero. His teacher wants Nick to put an end to all this nonsense, but the funny thing is frindle doesn't belong to Nick anymore. The new word is spreading across the country, and there's nothing Nick can do to stop it.

Do you like humorous books? If yes, then I highly recommend this book. Frindle by Andrew Clements is about a boy named Nick Allen who is a big trouble maker. He creates a every day object into one of the most popular news on T.V, magazines, and newspapers .Nick's teacher Ms.Granger tries to get in the way of Nick's fame. She gives detention to all the kids who use the word frindle. Im not telling you the rest though I absolutely love the book and I hope you enjoy the book . Thanks for reading this summary.

This is a good book but I think it should be a little bit less money because then no one will be able to afford this but other than that this is a good book and I would give it 5 stars
