From the popular Mary Fabyan Windeatt Series of saint biographies by Tan Books. Saint Thomas Aquinas: The Story of the "Dumb Ox", written as a first-person narrative, tells the story a saint who had an amazing memory, knew most of the Bible by heart, and for whom no subject was difficult. This tale of the life of the patron saint of Catholic schools tells how his mother fought against his vocation, how his brothers kidnapped him and put him in a tower, how his sisters helped him, and how angels brought him something from Heaven.
