When Pete and Maggie Adams get off the school bus upset about a classmate, Grandpa does the only thing he kws to do: he tells them a story-one of God's stories, at that! Join the Adams children as they hear the parable of Tom the unhappy sheep and all of the dangerous adventures he finds himself on when he wanders into the forest, away from the shepherd, one Friday afteron. Along the way, you will encounter joke-telling cardinals, well-spoken owls, fun-loving rabbits, a smooth-talking snake, one very angry bear, and many more of the forest's wild creatures. At the end of the path, though, Pete and Maggie must watch Tom make a very important choice-a choice we all must make at one time or ather: life or death. For the Adams children, things will never be the same.
