Roger the Pronoun wants to do the noun's job even though he knows that he'll always be just a pronoun. It's book five 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.

Feeling that he's destined for more than just renaming nouns, Roger opens up his own store next to Nelson's Nouns. But when Nelson goes missing, Roger realizes that for life to mean anything at all, every pronoun has to have an antecedent. Clear and informative back matter includes textbook-style definitions and usage examples of subject and object pronouns, reflexive and intensive pronouns, and indefinite pronouns.

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.
