PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This book club is about a boy, Nick Allen, who thinks up the word "Frindle" (pen) when he is trying to avoid working for Mrs. Granger, his fifth grade language arts teacher. Both characters are classic literary types: Nick is a smart and rebellious youth, while the legendary Mrs. Granger is a terrifyingly strict adult. Despite their seeming stereotypes, each character is far more complex.

What Frindle becomes, finally, is a story about how school, language, family, and even society as a whole exercise power and the various roles individuals play within a power structure. Some rebel, some oppress, some are ignorant of their role in the larger game, and some are completely aware. There is a tug of war over who will maintain control, and it all eventually comes down to what you call a "frindle."

Students are asked to answer questions based on chapter study, create words, and think about different ways to look at the story and characters.
