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.

Melts my Heart

As an educator I LOVED this story! There is always that one kid ... You can interpret that phrase two different ways and both are represented in the book. In the end, my heart melted and made me think of some of my students that was like Nick!

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.

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!
