What does a 3 line synopsis look like?

To submit to an agent? Could someone give me an example? I have googled but am still a bit unclear. It's for a children's book which would be part of a series, with illustrations and a moral tale in each one if that helps? Thanks

Does this help at all?
There is a comment with a three line pitch I think......

Write it as if its the blurb. Imagine someone taking it off the shelf and glancing at it. What's your USP? They only have 2 seconds to be persuaded.

Why not practice writing 3 sentence blurbs for books you already know?

Harry Potter has magical powers, but is only just finding out what they can do. When he starts school at Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, he finds as many enemies as he does friends...

You get the idea. Good luck!
