"A" my sentence is ....

We created a new game today.

Pippi was reading The Emerald Tablet by PJ Hoover and came across this sentence:
"And apparently addictive," Andy added.

"Every word starts with an A," Pippi pointed out. "Do you think she did that on purpose?"

We don't know if that sentence was intentionally "a"full, but we tried to see if we could come up with a sentence that made sense, starting every word with B.

"Bother!" barked Boris.

or C?

"Cute cats," cooed Carl.

We got all the way up to R before we were at my Mom's and we ended the game.

"Gadzooks," gasped Gloria, "Great Game!"

This is hilarious! Wow, I'd love to take credit for having intentionally done it (as it created a fun game for the family), but I can't.
But, wow, maybe I'll hide one such sentence in every book :)

In the next book it will have to be a sentence that starts with all "B"s. :)

PJ Hoover said...

Perfect! So what about Tut? What letter does he get?

Christine M said...

Hmmm - Tut should be either a C sentence or D - depending on if he'll find a home before or after the last Forgotten Worlds book. Though T for him would be fun. "Terrific!" Tut thought, "thirty thirsty Thespians tracked Tut to the theater." - okay, that needs help.

I like the T idea. Oh, except it's first person. Forgot about that. Luckily (?) there's still time to think on it :)
