This is an easy short school story. It's all about what a fifth-grade boy created a new word. However, it is not easy to read the whole story and then just leave it behind after reading it, because there must be something left in your mind to stimulate you to look back at your own life, especially thing you always take for granted.
We always think the world is what we see and hear, but the truth is that it is always changing. The world we see is what people have already changed. And most of the time, we don't even think that we are the one who is making the world changing.
After reading this short story, I start to think maybe I am doing some change to the world.
It's a good story. No matter how old you are, you should read this story and think about the world which we take for granted.
I love this book sooo much that I read about 6 times.
The idea about the word "Frindle" was marvelous, and the competition between the teacher and the students were really amazing, maybe it's because I'm a student too. You know, sometimes challenging teachers is fun. I haven't tried the tricks that Nick played on his teachers before, but just reading them thrilled me....Continua
What an awesome story! It's a quick read, but well worth it.
Nick is ornery. Smart, but ornery. He has a history of organizing "disasters" at school. Fifth grade is no different as he takes on the hardnosed language arts teacher, Mrs. Granger.
She loves the dictionary and wields it as a punishment. Nick counters and the fun begins. But fun has a way of getting away from Nick and his contribution soon becomes a burden.
But like all good stories, this has a happy ending. It's a page turner....Continua
