Roger the Pronoun
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.
Roger the Pronoun is part of the nine-book Meet the Parts of Speech series starring the eight parts of speech, who are personified based on the roles they play in the sentence. From the shady pronoun always trying to take the noun’s place to the motherly conjunction who just wants everyone to get along, 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.
