My favorite part of the book is the letter.  Mrs. Granger gives Nick the letter, and he does not open it until ten years later when he is grown up.  She describes her reaction to the coining of the word “frindle” and why he did it.  She asks him to think about her perspective. 

But somehow I think I have a small part to play in this drama, and I have chosen to be the villain.  Every good story needs a bad guy, don’t you think?  (ch 15, p. 99)

I love the idea that Nick and Mrs. Granger each had more going on than the other realized, and the letter is proof of that.

I would say that the best part is the notion of "inventing" the word to change the balances of power.  The idea of language being something invented to develop power and to assert a sense of control over one's place in the world is a fairly compelling one and to actually see this fifth grade invent the use of the word "frindle" is fairly captivating.

In the book Frindle does Nick give money to the scholarship fund and if so how do we know that?
