From Publishers Weekly

Trying to aggravate a tough language-arts teacher, a fifth-grade boy invents a new word for pen: "frindle." Soon, the whole country is using it. "Dictionary lovers will cotton to this mild classroom fantasy," said PW. Ages 8-12.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Most of my characters are fairly normal people who are dealing with the basics of everyday life--getting along with others, finding a place in the world, discovering talents, overcoming challenges, trying to have some wholesome fun along the way, and getting into some scrapes and a little mischief now and then, too. I guess I hope my readers will be able to see bits and pieces of themselves in the stories, particularly the novels that take place in and around school. School is a rich setting because schools and education are at the heart of every community. The stories that are set in school seem to resonate with kids, teachers, parents, librarians--readers of all ages. Everyone's life has been touched by school experiences. And I also hope, of course, that kids and others will enjoy reading, enjoy the use of language, enjoy my storytelling.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm, very telling
By Kindle Customer on July 4, 2020
This book is assigned to my child entering the 4th grade for his summer reading book report. Of course I had to read it too to lend assistance if necessary. When we read page 54, it had me thinking. Maybe because of what is going on in our country about institutionalized racism, that many in government claim does nor exist, but the reference on this page made me pause and think.
Mrs. Granger, the teacher, and the principal, Mrs. Chatham, are depicted as the 'bad guy', making a big deal about the word 'frindle'. As in the game of chess, the principal, in her black raincoat, is likened unto "the black queen". In the same narrative, "powerful defender... good old Mom, the white queen"- is portrayed as a positive character.
One may think that this is harmless story telling, but this sends a message to young children, intentionally or not, that black is bad and white is good.
I will be speaking to the authorities in my children's school about this, and would hope that other schools do not allow this careless depiction of underlying racial disparagement to infiltrate into young minds.
