Fabulous First Line Friday: 19 October

It’s Fabulous First Line Friday! And here is this week’s Fabulous First Line*:

In the sunlit gully, green and wide
Where secret nooks are fine to hide
In a soft and grassy snuggly nest
Little bandicoot comes to rest.

Do you want to read on? The title of the book is at the end of this post …

*For the purposes of Fabulous First Line Friday, we’re counting the first line as the first line of chapter 1 in any book. So if there is an introduction or an author’s note or something before chapter 1, we don’t count that bit …
The book is Bushland Lullaby by Sally Odgers.
