Hailed as the Schoolhouse Rock for the 21st Century, Grammaropolis features the parts of speech and punctuation marks as animated characters with personalities based on the roles they play in the sentence. Those characters star in books, songs, videos, and interactive games. From the shady pronoun always trying to take the noun’s place to the motherly conjunction who just wants everyone to get along, and with the help of no-drama Chief Comma, tender-hearted Officer Period, and the other members of the Punctuation Department, Grammaropolis achieves the seemingly impossible: we make learning grammar fun!
