Simple Polish Stories - Where can I find these on the Internet?

There seems to be a startling dearth of learning resources on the Net when it comes to Polish.

Does anybody know of anywhere on the Internet where you can read short simple stories in Polish (simple as in: 'the cat sat on the mat') and if there are any sites that offer more detailed stories as you progress?

Thank you.

offer more detailed stories as you progress

Thank you Sausage, this is much appreciated - will try and listen to it later when the room isn't being filled with the sound of tankfire (my sister got a new game for Xmas I think).

Do you know of any sites though that offer stories you can read?

You'll find some links on this thread: polishforums.com/language-17/learning-links-8328/

These links are most likely to be close to what you are looking for:

Some paralell polish and english texts here:

let.rug.nl/%7Ehoutzage/polish.html

and sounds recordings of the texts in polish here, though the speaker speaks very fast...

odur.let.rug.nl/~houtzage/poldownloadsmp3.html

Another bit of paralell text in english and polish:
