Sample Page from The Red Raincoat:

On Sunday, Manu’s parents got him a red raincoat.
“Ma, may I wear it now?” asked Manu.
“No, my dear, the rains are near, but just now the sky is clear,” said Ma.

Monday was bright and sunny.
“WILL it rain today, Mummy?” asked Manu.
“No Manu, not today. If you wear your raincoat, you will look quite
funny!” said Ma.
