This printable activity uses a 2016 article about an eight-year-old-boy who invents a new word. It asks both text-dependent questions and comparing/contrasting questions about the article and the book "Frindle," by Andrew Clements. It is intended to be used as part of a literature study of the novel. The ten questions are all short answer/essay, and run a range of complexity according to Bloom's taxonomy.
