The title of this book is Frindle. There are 105 pages in this book. 

This story is about a boy called Nick Allen. He was full of brilliant ideas but most of them got him into trouble. However, that did not stop Nick from thinking of more ideas.

When Nick was in fifth grade, everything was different. He had to face Mrs Granger, his English Language teacher. He learned all about words and wanted to invent one himself. One day he bumped into his friend and dropped a pen. This gave Nick a new idea. He decided that he would not use the word pen. It would be “frindle”. The word soon passed on and the whole school began to use the word. Students were punished for using the word “frindle”. Mrs Granger became enemies with Nick.

Soon the world used the word frindle. Nick became popular. The  newspaper reporters and journalists came to interview him. As Nick grew older, he became a rich man. Frindle soon became a normal word. One day, a man came and gave Nick a parcel. Nick opened it and found the parcel was from his old teacher… I recommend this book to all who love to read.
