  1. The kids in Room 207 were misbehaving again.
  2. Sylvester Duncan lived with his mother and father at Acorn Road in Oatsdale.
  3. Once upon a time in a little French town lived an old lady whose name was Madame Louise Bodot.
  4. On the night before Tim's birthday, he found a strange envelope under his pillow.
  5. We were all sitting around the big kitchen table. It was Saturday morning. Pancake morning.
  6. Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, it was the custom of all fathers and mothers in China to give their first and honored sons great long names.
  7. I went to sleep with gum in my mouth and now there's gum in my hair...
  8. Not so long ago, before she could even speak words, Trixie went on an errand with her daddy...
  9. It was late one winter night, long past my bedtime, when Pa and I went owling.
  10. A happy school of little fish lived in a corner of the sea somewhere. They were all red.
So, how well do you know your picture books?  Tell us as many titles as you can identify in the comments below.
