A reporter named Alice came with CBS and interviewed people at Nick's school. Then she went to Nick's house. His parents didn't trust reporters. So they tapped on Nick's foot when he shouldn't answer a question and they would answer it for him. His Dad went to Bud the person who was making Frindle products. Bud said he wanted to own word. Nick's Dad said he could and Bud gave him $2,250 for Nick's bank and Nick would get 30% of the sales. I predict the word will spread over the world.
