‘But where are we going to find fresh hare ears and an eyeball?’ asked Calypso. ‘There’s no way I’m going to hurt an animal. Not even to help your grumpy aunt.’
Alfie nodded. ‘I agree.’
Then on the top shelf he spotted them. EVIL EYE GOBSTOPPERS.
‘We’ll use one of those sweets for an eyeball!’ he said.
The gobstoppers were large and bloodshot. They stared out of the jar. Alfie selected a large dark brown eyeball with a big black pupil.
‘What about the hare ears, Alfie?’
‘That plant in the corner has leaves a bit like ears, long and sort of pointed.’
Calypso looked doubtful.
‘Let’s just give it a go,’ said Alfie.

There was a sharp crack as the tray hit the dessert cart, and one of the tarts she’d been squirrelling away into her sash hit the carpet with a sad little splat.
There was no time to mourn the loss of the pastry though, because another harpy scream came shortly after the first, considerably closer this time.

First Chapter First Paragraph Thursday Intros ~ The Stars of Whistling Ridge by Cindy Baldwin

The Stars of Whistling Ridge, Cindy Baldwin, Blue, Stars, Girl, Shadow, Fantasy, Young Adult,
In stories, the number three is important.
Three princesses.
Three woodcutter’s sons.
Three tasks.
My story is the same, I guess.
Three sisters.
Three fallen stars.
And three disasters.
Mama always says that disasters are like blessings – both of them come in threes. They follow on each other’s heels, the way starlight follows moonrise, so that you can’t untangle them even if you tried.
This is the story of how I proved her right.

The tall, tall trees make me feel small. My mind tingles and my senses come alive. Sometimes in the forest I feel so close to the story of my past I can almost hear it on the wind.”
