When I opened the tanned pages of Frindle, I was swept into a world of language and the thoughts that collided in Nick Allen's mind. His ideas for the new word replacing pen urged me to rename every item in my house! Wonderful Book, and cleverly written. Must Read!
This is a good book but we were required to read it in my fifth grade class and by now I've come to the conclusion that that was a great mistake. Anyone above the third grade is most likely far too advanced for the easiness of not only the story,but the unrealistic social situations.
The only thing to worry about is the fact that Nick disobeys his teacher. The only reason I did not give this a five was because of like Andrew's other books the beginning are really draggy. Funny book!!!
