Sample Text from The Pig With the Runaway Tail

Pongal the pig loves sleeping. Sometimes she sleeps all day!
No wonder her tail gets bored easily.
One day, when Pongal wakes up from her afternoon nap, her tail is nowhere to be found. It has gone on an adventure without her!

The pig feels silly without a tail. So, she decides to go look for it.

SCRRRUNCH! “This forest is much too untidy!” Pongal says.
EEEK! She trips over a log.

DHADAAAM!
She falls into a bush.

“Has anybody seen my tail?” Pongal asks.
“Why don’t you try a mushroom tail instead?” Langur replies.
“HUMPH!” Pongal says. “But I want my own tail back!”
She goes to look for it somewhere else.

OOOOF! “This city is much too noisy!” Pongal says.
BEEP-BEEP! She dodges a zigzagging auto ricksha.
DRRING-DRRING! She tries to crawl under a bicycle.

“Has anybody seen my tail?” Pongal asks.
“Why don’t you try a balloon tail instead?” Crow replies.
“GAAAH!” Pongal says. “But I want my own tail back!” She goes to look for it somewhere else.
