Frindle reminds me of the Oxford Dictionary website introduced to me by Louise Hawes,
Nick would have had a ball adopting and resurrecting obsolete words. I check in when I feel an adopt-a-word itch. It’s great fun!
Frindle is a wonderful book for MG readers, as are all of Clements’ books. My students have loved making up words and seeing if they can make the word stick!
This book is pretty clean. The children are disobedient in their insistence to use the word “frindle,” but it is more like civil disobedience that actual rebellion. Please see my rating for more details.
