Example of text:
'Puss goes to work
Puss headed for a field where he knew there were lots of rabbits.
Opening the bag, he stretched out on the ground and pretended to be dead.
Just as he expected, a foolish young rabbit came bouncing along and sniffed the carrots.
As it poked its quivering nose into the bag, Puss pounced.
On behalf of his master - 'The Duke of Carabas', Puss takes a taste of his many talents to the King, who is suitably impressed!
But Puss doesn't stop there and in his quest to promote his master's status, gets a little ...... shall we say...mischievous, not to mention economical with the truth!
And they all live very happily ever after as a result!
