Frindle is an adorable story about a boy name Nick who has had a history of being a rebellious child who had always gotten away with things in the past, but when he got to Mrs. Granger’s class everything changed. For the first time ever, his sneaky end of the day homework tick only got him into more trouble and he was writing a report about the history of the dictionary after the first day of class. Before even starting the fifth grade, everyone knew about Mrs. Granger and her creepy eyes. The story continues when Nick gives a very long report on the history of the dictionary, which ended up taking the majority of the class period. At the very end of class Mrs. Granger told the students about how new words get into the dictionary when people make them up and get others to use them. Nick took this idea to heart and when picking up a pen off the ground looked to a friend and said, “Here’s your…frindle” Pg. 35. The story is a cute journey of his battle with Mrs. Granger and the school to implement his creative/new word. The ending of the story is adorable and the letter he gets from Mrs. Granger makes for a wonderful ending to the book.
