State a reality… "There is no lake at Camp Green Lake." (from Louis Sachar's Holes ) "It's a clever thing about moms and fathers. Notwithstanding when their own particular kid is the most appalling little rankle you would ever envision, regardless they surmise that he or she is great." (from Roald Dahl's Matilda )

Invite peruser into the scene… "The street that prompted to Treegap had been trod out much sooner than by a crowd of bovines who were, no doubt, loose." (from Natalie Babbitt's Tuck Everlasting ) "A cruising ship with two incredible sidewheels went sprinkling out of Boston harbor on a voyage around the Horn to San Francisco. Beneath decks, in the squeaking obscurity of her payload hold, there sat eighteen barrels of potatoes. Inside two barrels, one next to the other, there hunched down two stowaways. It was not sometime in the distant past – it was definitely the twenty-seventh day of January in the year 1849. Gold had been found in California somewhere in the range of twelve months before a now, in a surge, the Gold Rush was on." (from Sid Fleischman's By the Great Horn Spoon )

Explain an issue… "And they lived cheerfully many. Not the Tillermans. Uncertain thought. That wasn't the way things went for the Tillermans, ever. She wasn't going to give that a chance to get her down. She couldn't give it a chance to get her down-that was what had happened to Momma." (from Cynthia Voight's Dicey's Song )

Slide 9

Use five faculties to allure peruser… "In the city of Ember, the sky was constantly dim. The main light originated from awesome surge lights mounted on the structures and at the highest points of shafts amidst the bigger squares. At the point when the lights were on, they cast a yellowish gleam over the lanes;" (from Jeanne Duprau's The City of Ember )

Grab your peruser's consideration… "On the off chance that you are keen on stories with upbeat endings, you would be in an ideal situation perusing some other book."  (from Lemony Snicket's The Bad Beginning: A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book 1 ) "My name is India Opal Buloni, and the previous summer my daddy, the evangelist, sent me to the store for a crate of macaroni-and-cheddar, some white rice, and two tomatoes and I returned with a pooch."
