Sam’s Aunt Eva says he’s like a tornado—he causes a ruckus everywhere he goes. But Aunt Eva won’t give up on Sam, and neither will Saucer, the monastery’s corgi puppy. Saucer lives at the monastery, but he dreams of herding sheep. With no sheep in his life, Saucer tries to herd everyone else—farm animals, nuns, and especially Sam. Sam doesn’t want to follow anyone, not even a funny puppy. But Saucer knows that if he just keeps trying, he can bring this lonely boy back to the flock.

Seria pentru cei mai mici creștini
Se apropie Crăciunul. Copiii iau parte la un concurs literar în școala mănăstirii, și fiecare ar vrea să câștige. Unul dintre ei încearcă să afle dacă este adevărat că în Ajunul Crăciunului poți auzi animalele vorbind și, fără știrea nimănui, se furișează în grajdul mănăstirii.
…Dar nu întotdeauna planurile noastre se potrivesc cu ceea ce este mai bine pentru noi. Din fericire, Dumnezeu veghează și lucrează neîncetat!
