The Start of Something Wonderful and First Loves
“Where’s Papa going with that axe?” said Fern to her mother as they were setting the table for breakfast. -Charlotte’s Web
I was so young when I first read these words and I will never forget the feeling of being hit in the gut and instantly transported into another person’s heart and soul. I was so captured by the moment that words and art would forever weave their way into my life.
Charlotte’s Web was my first love and the start of something wonderful. I am forever thankful for that first line. What is your favorite first line?
