Is Nick Allen a troublemaker?
He really just likes to liven things up at school -- and he's always had plenty of great ideas. When Nick learns some interesting information about how words are created, suddenly he's got the inspiration for his best plan ever...the frindle. Who says a pen has to be called a pen? Why not call it a frindle? Things begin innocently enough as Nick gets his friends to use the new word. Then other people in town start saying frindle. Soon the school is in an uproar, and Nick has become a local hero. His teacher wants Nick to put an end to all this nonsense, but the funny thing is frindle doesn't belong to Nick anymore. The new word is spreading across the country, and there's nothing Nick can do to stop it.
... “Shhh!” to the whole class. A minute later Nick did it again, louder. “Peeep!” This time there was a little giggling from the class. But Mrs. Avery pretended not to hear the sound, and about fifteen seconds later she slowly stood up ...
She was good at baseball, and she was better at soccer than most of the kids in the whole school, boys or girls. Nick said, “Hey Janet—I'm sorry you got yelled at during reading. It was my fault. I was the one who made that sound.
If you gave yourself a day off and didn't write one down and look it up and learn the definition— sooner or later Mrs. Granger would find out, and then, just for you, there would be two Words for the Day for a whole week.
Did they just get copied from other dictionaries? It sure is a big book.” It was a perfect thought-grenade—KaPow! Several kids smiled, and a few peeked at the clock. Nick was famous for this, and the whole class knew what he was doing.
