I can get his cloak off more quickly than you can.” “We will see about that,” said the sun. “I will let you try first.” So the wind tried to make the man take off his cloak. He blew and blew, but the man only pulled his cloak more closely around himself. “I give up,” said the wind at last. “I cannot get his cloak off.” Then the sun tried. He shone as hard as he could.

A hippo lives in the zoo. I like him very much. I often go to see him.
He often thinks of me, too. Today is Sunday. It is a fine day. I go to see him again.
After I leave the zoo, he follows me to my house.
I give him lettuce, cabbages, bananas, apples and other foods. He eats them up.
When I sing songs, he stays in the pool. He is as quite as a rabbit.
In the evening, he jumps onto my bed with me.
My mum tells him to go home. He has to pack his bag and go back to the zoo. My mum lets me see him every week.
