Description

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.

    After thinking about how words are first created, fifth grader Nick decides to create a new word for pen-- "Frindle." The word catches on with all the other students, much to the chagrin of tough fifth grade teacher, Mrs. Granger.The innovative plot and likable main character will keep kids turning the pages, especially those amused by the questioning of authority figures. Though the book lacks much suspense and unpredictability, readers will care enough about Nick to remain engaged throughout the book's 105 pages; the lack of suspense also makes Frindle a great choice for advanced younger readers. With the help of a handful of detailed pencil drawings by Brian Selznick scattered throughout the text, readers get a great sense of Nick, Lincoln Elementary School, and the town of Westfield. Recommended for all elementary libraries.

    Nick Allen is a clever student who prides himself on his ability to waste time in class--to ask that last question right before the homework is assigned that is guaranteed to get the teacher off on a tangent that goes nowhere--and guarantees no homework assignment that night. He is the master at it until he finds himself in Mrs. Granger's fifth grade class, where his question gets him assigned extra work. Nick soon comes up with a clever plan to turn the tables on Granger by inventing a new word for ordinary item -- a frindle. What starts as a trick to upset a rigid teacher soon snowballs beyond anything either of them can control.Fast paced and fun to read and discuss, this clever book will engage readers-- from every surprising plot twist to it's satisfying end.

    I like this book. For one, I like it because of how it is written. Because it is written as a young, school-aged boys, its audience can better relate to it (as it is intended for school-age children). I also like this book because of the sort of 'whimsy' to it. It is common for students in 2nd or 3rd grade to make up words, and by showing students that they can create their own word and can make it a part of everyday language, shows that students are able to make a difference and are able to make a change. The main idea of the story is just that, that even children can change something in the world.

    The main character, Nick, learns some information about how words are created, he comes up with an idea. The frindle. He shows his friends the findle and they start using the word. Before long, his town starts using the word, too. It all becomes to much and Nick's teacher wants him to end all of it. Nick isn't in control anymore, even if he stops using the word it is already spreading across the country.

    This is one of my favorite children's books. Nick is a creative kid, but he meets his match with Mrs. Granger, his fifth grade English teacher. What happens in this story is when a boy uses his creativity and creates something spectacular.

    Nick wondered why people had to say a pen 'a pen' then he makes a new word, but then he had trouble with Mrs. Granger. This is a perfect book to people who has same question with Nick!

    Andrew Clements is coming to a conference in the spring, so I thought I ought to read some of his books before that happens. One of the books I chose to read is Frindle, a book about Nicholas Allen. Nick is a well-meaning 5th grader who has some ideas up his sleeve. When his teacher informs him that words are given meaning by two people agreeing, then he gets the idea to rename pens as "frindles." It catches on far more than he could have imagined.

    "Frindle", written by Andrew Clements is a very clever and silly book. This novel is about a young boy, Nick, who is deemed as a trouble maker at his school; him and his class decide to create their own word for pen and the school breaks into a frenzy about this new word. Clements perfectly brings you into the fun, silly atmosphere of Nick Allen through his writing. The headings of each chapter are in a kid-like font and the first sentence of each chapter starts with capital letters, which really captures your attention and brings you further into the story. I believe that the overall theme of this novel is that creativity is important and to not let others stop you from using your imagination.

    Good Book about a student who learns about word making. He then comes to the conclusion, why can't a pen be called something else? So the word frindle originates, which becomes a widespread across the country. Teachers are not happy about what has happened, but unfortunately it is too late.
  • (5/5)
    Frindle offers readers a valuable lesson as to how even a small, seamingly innocent idea can take off with the right kind of marketing and manpower. It takes a village, in this case an entire school, but Nick's plan to waste some class time to avoid extra homework, takes on a life of its own. Once the word frindle goes viral, it attracts both positive and negative interest throughout the community, the country, and eventually the world... much to Nick's surprise. Clements displays a natural knack for writing for middle years readers - no wonder he is known affectionately as the "master of the school story." The language is familiar, and children will easily identify with the characters... everyone will be able to picture their own "Mrs. Granger." (It was Mrs. Sandburn in my day!)

    Summary: Nick Allen is a very clever and creative fifth grader at Lincoln Elementary in the quiet town of Westfield, New Jersey. Nick always had a way of asking questions that kept his teacher off topic long enough for the bell to ring before they could assign that day's homework assignment, but that was before Mrs. Granger became his language arts teacher. Mrs. Granger loved the dictionary and words more than anyone could imagine and always seemed to be one step ahead of Nick's disruptive plans. One day Nick asked Mrs. Granger who says what words go in the dictionary and what they mean, she told him "We decide what goes in that book." That afternoon Nick had his best idea yet, he was going to make up a new word; Frindle, of otherwise known as a pen, and it was not long before the whole school was using his new word. But Nick had no idea the magnitude of the events that "frindle" would cause.Personal Reaction: I loved this book! Once I started reading it I could not bring myself to put it down. I really enjoy the personality that Andrew Clements' characters portrayed. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a clever and fun book around the 5th grade reading level. It shines light on the power creativity can have.Classroom Extension Ideas: This book can be used to teach kids that the possibilities are endless when you use creativity and imagination. Also, it teaches you that standing up for what you believe in can pay off in the end. After reading this book as a class I would give the students a week to come up with a new word that they would like to start using in the classroom, then have the class as a whole vote on which word they would like to become the classroom's "new word" for the year. Also, I would hold a class discussion on whether they feel it is right or wrong to stick up for something based on various situations.

    I love this story! This is one of my favorites and has been since I was a kid! I like the writing and the plot of the story. The writing is paced very well and engages the reader by making it relatable. The main character, Nicholas, is creative and is the class clown but none of his pranks harm anyone and are more appropriate than others. Many students can relate him to themselves or someone in their class. Nicholas learns about words and decides to create his own. This will encourage the reader to be creative and invent their own words. The message in this story is the power of words and how far information can travel. Especially now in today's world, word can travel fast through the use of internet.

    Frindle was not my favorite book to read because it was kinda boring at some parts of the story.
  • (4/5)
    Nick Allen, a daring fifth grader. has quite an imagination often causing distractions during class time. His fifth grade teacher, Mrs. Granger is a bit more strict then his past teachers. Nick often disrupts the classroom but Mrs. Granger is not having it. Nick began to ask Mrs. Granger about all of her dictionaries in the room and about all of the words in them. Mrs. Granger assigned Nick to research his questions and give an oral report about it. This project made Nick decide that he would make up his own word. He makes up the word Frindle in place of "pen." Frindle quickly catches on and this makes Mrs. Granger so angry. Frindle eventually catches on beyond the school and across the country and Nick and Mrs. Granger are surprised. Eventually, Frindle becomes part of the dictionary. This would be a good piece of literature to read to students learning about the dictionary or for English Language Arts.

    I thought it was a very clever story. Who decides what words mean? Nick decides to explore labeling, with interesting results.
  • (5/5)
    I really enjoyed this story. I think it would be fun to have your students make up names for different objects in their classroom and try to see if they could get people to call them that. This is a fun story and any student would love it.

    Great book! Frindle is a story that can be read over and over, because the story is both fun and unique. Clements uses language in a creative way in this story--the main character creates a new word for "pen" that becomes a national sensation. Frindle could be used to talk about language, or just for a fun and interesting read.

    The first Clements book I ever read, this was a great story and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was comepletely taken with the idea of a teacher who uses her own brilliant mind motivate an otherwise difficult child. It worked and I have to say I was very impressed with the ending. Clements did an excellant job wrapping this up. On the whole, this was a wonderful book.

    Clements, Andrew. (1996) Frindle. Illustrated by Brian Selznick. New York: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers.In this fun story, a boy named Nicholas Allen who likes to question everything. This year, he is in Mrs. Grangers's fifth grade class and he is not happy about it. She has a reputation for being strict and he knows that this year will be boring. Nick learns about words and their origins because Mrs. Granger is always making them use their dictionaries so Nick decides to invent his own word- frindle- which is supposed to replace the word pen. It catches on quickly so this angers Mrs.Granger and all the other teachers. Nick's new word becomes so popular that he even ends up on The David Letterman Show. Nick even manages to make money off the word frindle and his dad saves it all for him in a trust. This story follows Nick into adulthood and when he turns 21, he gets all the money in his trust and learns a lot about himself too.This book takes the realities of a kids life into another level. Although the characters are credible and do represent a real child, perhaps the events may seem a bit unrealistic. It does portray a kids struggle with school boredom accurately and how they resort to being creative to keep interested in school.
