I had forgotten what a cute little book this was. Nick Allen is a prankster who has the art of sidetracking teachers down to a science. However, Mrs. Granger, his fifth grade English teacher, isn't so easy to manipulate. The first time he tries to get her to forget to give out homework, she assigns him extra homework. Thus starts the battle of the frindle.

I loved both Nick and Mrs. Granger. Their battle over the word "frindle" that Nick made up to replace the word "pen" shows how adaptable the English language is and brings a new appreciation for the good old dictionary. Hmmm...it doesn't sound so great the way I described it, but the story is both funny and heartwarming.
