  • By Doreen Tamminga
Product Description

Caleb desperately wants a cat, but his mother is allergic to them. When a stray cat show ups at the house, Caleb can't resist taking care of it--despite his mother's sneezing Hopes are dashed when Caleb's father explains to him that he cannot expect God to always answer his prayers in the way he wants.
