What leadership skills does it take for groups to respond?
It’s boys vs. girls when the noisiest, most talkative fifth graders in history create a contest to see who really can talk the least. When fifth grader Dave Packer studies Gandhi for a report on India, he learns that Gandhi was silent one day each week to calm his mind. Though Dave likes to talk nonstop, he's determined to give the idea a try. But when confronted by a female classmate, friendly competition turns into an all-out challenge. Rollicking fun ensues in this comedy with a big heart.
The New York Times Book Review raved, "Andrew Clements set the standard for the school story in 1996 with his first novel, Frindle... No Talking is his best school story since."
