Transcript of Andrew Clements
Andew had 4 kids
He lives in Westborough, Massachusetts
He is 66 years old
He went to college at Northwestern University
His first book ever wrote was Bird Adalbert
Those were some facts about Andrew Clements. I hope you like it.
Andrew got his inspiration for Frindle by going to some 1st and 2nd graders and he was teaching them about words and the kids didn't get that words only mean what we decide they mean. They didn't believe him so he pointed to the dictionary and told them that ordinary people like them and like me had made up all the words in that book and that new words get made up all the time. Pulling a pen from his pocket he said, "For example, if all of us right here today we would never call this thing a pen again, and that we would now on we would call it a frindle. That is how he got the inspiration for frindle. He sold more then 2.5 million copies of Frindle.

The Report Card
The main character in the story is Nora. In the beginning of the story Nora gets her report card and she got a bunch of D's and C'S. She is doing it because she is actually really smart and doesn't want any one to know. Then one day she was on this computer and she was on college stuff and she had to leave for this meeting and she didn't turn of her computer so when the librarian went to turn off the computer she looked and saw that Nora was on college stuff and she looked deeper into it and saw the Nora was actually smart.
When I was reading The Report Card and Frindle I noticed that the books have something in common and it is that there is always a trouble maker.
