This term we have been reading the text ‘Frindle’. It is about a boy named Nick who changed the word pen to frindle with the help of other students and his English, teacher Mrs Granger. At first, Mrs Granger didn’t like Nick and the other students using the word ‘frindle’ because it wasn’t in the dictionary and not a real word. However, towards the end of the book, we found out that Mrs Granger was helping Nick all along.
Nick has power in the book because he made his own word and was determined to make a new word.
We recommend reading this book!
