Frindle | [Andrew Clements]

Frindle

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Great family road trip book!"

    We have listened to lots of books on our road trips over the years, and this one was my family's favorite. (Family consists of me, wife, 11 year old boy and 9 year old girl.) The story was funny and kept moving enough to keep us entertained on the long road. The reading was lively and understandable for the kids, who sometimes struggle on road trips to understand. The only downside was that it is relatively short, so we needed several other books to pass the time.

    "Great for kids!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I listened to this book while driving my 15 year old to a youth conference. I picked it out for my 9 year old boy who accompanied us on the 4 hour drive. My 15 year old usually listens to his own music, but he had liked this story so much when he was younger, he decided to listen along with us and that is saying something. I enjoyed the story and am proud to say that a word I invented when I was a teenager is still used in my own community. It is a nickname for the local college.

    Would you listen to Frindle again? Why?

    Yes. This is one of the rare books my boys want to read again and again.

    Oggie cooder, how to eat fried worms. Other stories about young boys and their adventures. Similar light -hearted action.

    No. He was good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. It's short line the other reviewer said its great for a road trip.

    Story
    "Lessons on Learning, Individuality and Forgiveness"

    My 11 year-old daughter, her friend and I listened to this book on a short Saturday roadtrip. This story deals with the handling of differing opinions, with kindness, respect and heart. After we had finished listening to the story, our daughter's friend said she had already read the book twice.

    Great Book!

    What made the experience of listening to Frindle the most enjoyable?

    The reader's voice was easy to listen to and brought the story to life. The story itself is enjoyable and moves fast.
