Book Beginnings on Friday - March 25th
How to participate: Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading on your blog or in the comments. Include the title and the author so we know what you're reading. Then, if you feel so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and let us know if you liked or did not like the sentence. This weekly meme is hosted by A Few More Pages every Friday. Check out their blog for a list of other book beginnings.
The Trouble With Chickens A J. J. Tulley Mystery by Doreen Cronin
"It was a hot, sunny day when I met that crazy chicken. So hot that sometimes I think the whole thing may have been a mirage. But mirages don't have chicken breath, mister."
What a great beginning. I love Doreen Cronin's picture books. I can't wait to see what she does with this chapter book.
