It was wrapped neatly with a beautiful paper. My father asked me not to open the parcel while my party was held. It was a book and it was covered with brown paper. When I opened it I could see the title of the book was ‘Ranarala. ‘ During the night I read it but could not read the whole book.
After my breakfast I read the book again and I finished it before lunch. I have a book to write the names of books I have read, and the authors’ names. The author of ‘Ranarala’ is Gamini Samarakoon. It was about a great man called Ranarala. He was an old sailor. One day the ship he sailed broke, and the men who worked in the ship went away using the lifeboats. Ranarala remained on the ship to help the Wickramasinghe family. The next day, the ship floated to an island. The story tells of the difficulties they faced on the island.
However, Ranarala died in the end trying to save the Wickramasinghe family. The next day a boat came to save them but only the Wickramasinghe family left the island.
