First Lines of Great books

So did you guess that "It was a dark and stormy night." was the first line of A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle?  Good for you if you did.  Check the end of this post for the next first line.

 "Make a Splash - READ!" is the theme for this summer's reading club.  The Youth Services staff has already posted the summer calendar on the Children's Area wall.   And all the dates are on the Events Calendar on the Parkland Community Library website.  Click here for a look at some of the activities planned for this summer. 

Check the Parkland Community Library website for updates on the Summer Reading Club as the sign-up date - JUNE 14th - approaches.

Now for today's first line.

"It was night and some fireflies danced around the moon."
Here are three choices:

A.  Counting our Way to Maine by Maggie Smith
B.  The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle
C.  At the Firefly Gate by Linda Newbery

Good luck!
