My favourite book is ‘Five run away together’. This book is very interesting. It was written by Enid Blyton. The characters in this book are four children and a dog. The four children’s names are Julian, Dick, George, Anne and Timmy the dog.
In this book, Julian, Dick and Anne, come to stay at George’s house. One day when they went for a picnic, George’s mother and father had gone to the hospital because George’s mother was ill.
children came back and found only Mrs. Stick and Edgar at home.
Mrs. Stick was the maid and Edgar was her son. When Julian went
into the kitchen, he saw a man
sleeping in the room. He was
Mr. Stick. Actually Mr. and
Mrs. Stick were kidnappers.
One day, all the children went to an island called Kirrin Island. George’s mother had given it to George. The Sticks’ also went to the island after kidnapping someone. The children hid and saved the
person who was kidnapped and they went to the police. I like that book very much.

Eating chocolate can be one of the most pleasurable things in the world, if you are in the right place, at the right time, with the right people, and most of all with your favourite
chocolate, like plain milk chocolate or with dried fruits, preferably the brand 'Cadbury'.
For me, chocolate is great for all occasions, the only downside to
chocolate is that it is packed with sugar and is unhealthy if eaten in large amounts.
I use chocolate as a little reward for myself, for when I get good grades, when I win something or when I
finish a project that took a lot of effort. Chocolate is also great for cheering up someone on a bad day.
Chocolate does not work only on little children, it’s great for anyone.
The most popular images are the ones of teenage girls, freshly dumped, and eating chocolate like it’s the only food on earth. I have never had this
experience, but some of my friends turn to chocolate when they are depressed. Chocolates are a great gift for anyone, at anytime.
Forrest Gump once said, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get.” Chocolate is very special for some of my good friends like, Sanudni, Roshen and Vinuri. They like chocolate so much.

Sri Lanka celebrated her 63rd Independence Day this year. The main celebrations were held in the historic city of Kataragama this year.
The ceremony began with the
arrival of the President and the
They were welcomed by the Speaker and other dignitaries. The President hoisted the National Flag. This was followed by a group of students singing the National Anthem and Jayamangala Gatha. Then there was a 21 gun salute in honour of the President. The President then addressed the nation.
The parade by the three Armed Forces and the Police was next. They all looked very smart. This was
followed by colourful dances by
different dance troupes and school children.
I enjoyed watching the Independence celebrations on TV.

I want to be an animal doctor
And treat the sick animals
travel on horse-back
Than drive posh vehicles
