Clem was born awkward. He fared poorly at camel training school. He didn’t make the cut to be chosen for caravan expeditions. Then suddenly he was 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 and became strong and happy. When they reached their destination, he knew how to kneel as gracefully as can be.
