"And then the murders began."

Inspired by this article titled
Improve any novel by changing its second line to “And then the murders began”
And it works especially good with kid's books! Here's a couple I threw together.

From (2003) TMNT book "Tricks and Treats":
April opened her apartment door, letting in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And then the murders began.

From a version of Henny Penny/Chicken Little:
One day Henny Penny was out in the barnyard pecking for corn when all of a sudden, something hit her on the head. Then the murders began.
