4 Kids | A Fun Little Game For You

Now that school is out, it's time to have some fun! So I thought I'd play a little game with you. I know you, dear reader, have read lots and lots of children's books. I just know you have! So let's see how much you remember!

Below are first lines from some of the best children's books ever. Can you figure out which book each line comes from? Don't worry. I'm not going to make you wait a whole week to find out how right you were! The answers are below. But don't look at the answers until you've really given it your best.

1. "The night Max wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind and another...his mother called him "wild thing!"

2. "These two very old people are the father and mother of Mr. Bucket."

3. "Frog ran up the path to Toad's house."

4. "Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much."

5. "'Where's Papa going with that ax?' said Fern to her mother as they were setting the table for breakfast."

6. "There is no lake at Camp Green Lake."

7. "In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines lived twelve little girls in two straight lines."

8. "Sunday: I wish I'd started keeping a journal a lot earlier on, because whoever ends up writing my biography is gonna have a lot of questions about my life in the years leading up to middle school."

9. "Once there were four children whose names were Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy."
