Clem, the Clumsy Camel

Clem was born awkward and uncoordinated. He fared poorly at camel training school. He lurched and stumbled. He didn’t make the cut to be chosen for exciting caravan expeditions. Clem was having a sad life. 

Then suddenly he was the last camel sold to a well-dressed man in a hurry. The man was following a star. 

Clem picked up a lot of experience on the journey, following the star. Carrying the man and packed with gifts, he became strong and happy. 

When they reached their destination, he knew how to kneel as gracefully as can be.
