To celebrate the National Year of Reading, every Friday for the rest of the year we’re posting a fabulous first line here on Soup Blog. (The first lines are quoted from children’s books on our bookshelves.)
Here’s today’s Fabulous First Line*:
My Obasaan told me the story of the dragon that used to visit her at night.
What do you think—if you opened a book and read that first line, would you want to read on?
Do you know the name of the book? (We’ll put it right at the end of this post so you can try to guess first.)
