Sample text:

Laguna the Lonely Mermaid lived in a beautiful place called Pearltide.

Laguna was lonely 
because she did not have many friends, 
and that made her sad.
One day, a pirate ship appeared on the horizon.

“A ship!” Laguna said. 
“It will bring friends for me to play with!” 
The pirate ship did not bring friends for Laguna to play with. 

When the boat came into the port of Pearltide, 
there was no one on board.
That made Laguna sad again.
Laguna did not know that there had been a big storm. 
The clouds came together, 
and strong winds tipped the boat over. 

The friendly pirates were washed into the water.
The friendly pirates thought they would drown
When they went 
deep under the water.
Some fish tried to help push the pirates up, 
but the fish were too small.
The little pirate said, 
“A big whale could help pull us up!” 

But the big pirate said, 
“No, a whale will swallow us!”
Laguna was looking at the empty pirate ship, 
wondering where all the people were.
