For a children's picture book a hook line is a pretty simple thing, awe but difficult at the same time.
Having only a limited word count means that every word used has to carry a big load.
That is why I chose this sentence as my hook line.
For children, heck even adults, it makes you wonder what she might look like. What is wrong with Wilhelmina?
Then there is a empathy that goes with the line also. Wow, I have felt that way. Many times as a child and as an adult, I wished I looked different than I do.
With this hook line it draws the reader in to want to know more. The line also makes the reader know that the story is going to relate to their own life.
For parents they know that this story will be something to have a conversation about.
