To celebrate the National Year of Reading, we are sharing some first lines from books on our bookshelves. So, every Friday for the rest of the year we’re posting a fabulous first line here on Soup Blog.
Here’s today’s Fabulous First Line*:
One afternoon … a princess and her panther crossed the desert sand.
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.)
