Just for fun, can you name the children's classic that starts with each of these first lines?
And what do they all have in common?
1- "Where's Papa going with that axe?"
2- "The first place that I can well remember was a large pleasant meadow with a pond of clear water in it."
3- "All children, except one, grow up."
4- "This is George. He lived in Africa."
5- "Chug, chug, chug. Puff, puff, puff. Ding-dong, ding-dong."
They take you in to the story immediately, no setting a scene or "once upon a time"! Do they all leave you wanting more?
In case you didn't know the answer-
1-Charlotte's Web by E.B.White
2-Black Beauty by Anna Sewell
3-Peter Pan by J.M.Barrie
4- Curious George by H.A.Rey
5- The Little Engine that Could by Watty Piper
