Benny may be extremely bossy, but if you listen to him carefully, you'll quickly learn a lot about adverbs. It's book four of the Meet the Parts of Speech series, in which the eight parts of speech are personified based on the roles they play in the sentence.

When his prized rock collection is stolen from the bank, Benny opens an investigation into how and when the theft took place and where the thief might have gone Clear and informative back matter includes textbook-style definitions and examples for adverbs modifying verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs; telling how, when, where, or to what extent; comparative and superlative adverbs, and adverb clauses.

In Grammaropolis, adverbs don't just modify verbs; adverbs are bossy. They tell the verbs where to go, when to leave, and how to get there. A pronoun doesn't just replace a noun; Roger the pronoun is a shady character who's always trying to trick Nelson the noun into giving up his spot. The Meet the Parts of Speech series uses the mechanics of character and story (plot, motivation, setting, etc.) to breathe life into what has traditionally been unengaging subject matter.

Our story-based approach combines traditional instruction with original narrative content, which appeals to different learning styles, increases both engagement and retention, and encourages students to make a deeper connection with the parts of speech and punctuation marks.
