Book : Frindle
Author : Andrew Clements
“Frindle” is a book written by Andrew Clements, an author of more than 50 books for children. Brian Selznick, the illustrator, has beautifully illustrated the book.
Nicholas Allen, or Nick, the lead character is a fifth grader who is always trying to liven things up for his class. His witty ideas makes the story hugely entertaining. There is also a battle brewing between Nick and Mrs. Granger, which takes the story forward.
What makes the book most interesting is the surprising twist at the end. Finally, things do come back to normal in the town in which Nick lives. No wonder it has won sixteen state book awards, as well as the Christopher Award.
I would recommend this book for ages 8-12 (but it was so engaging that even my mother enjoyed it!). I would give this book 4.5 stars out of 5.
