As lonely as a comma without a sentence.

Thomas Comma
About the Film

Ken Kimmelman's animated film Thomas Comma is based on a story by the poet Martha Baird. It's a charming, humorous, sophisticated and wonderful adventure of a lonely comma looking for the right sentence. Drawn by hand and then painted on computer, the film (24 minutes) will not only delight and inspire children of all ages (and adults)—but also encourage and educate them to have the best thing in them win! “We're all of us like commas,” said Martha Baird, “looking for the right sentence.”
