Item description for You Are Mine and If Only I Had a Green Nose (Max Lucado's Wemmicks) by Max Lucado...
Overview Two stories featuring Punchinello, the carved wooden boy who, in the first tale, tries to prove his worth by amassing more boxes and balls than anyone else, and in the second, learns that keeping up with fads is difficult and that his creator, Eli, has given each person in the town of Wemmick different characteristics on purpose.Two stories featuring Punchinello, the carved wooden boy who, in the first tale, tries to prove himself by amassing more boxes and balls than anyone else, and in the second, learns that keeping up with fads is difficult.
Bigger, better, and more is how the world determines who is special and who is not. It's a message kids hear every day. But it's not God's message.
Just like Punchinello, we all want to fit in-to be accepted by the crowd. But at times that may mean either looking and acting like others or risking being rejected.
God's truth is simple and unchanging, reminding us that it's not what we have that counts, but whose we are. This is a truth the lovable Wemmick, Punchinello, hears again at the knee of Eli, his creator.
Punchinello's hard-learned lessons show us how important it is to be who we were created to be, and why that matters. Let the two wonderful tales You Are Mine and If Only I Had a Green Nose-as 2 Books in 1-help you remember these important things: you were made the way you are for a reason, and there is Someone who will always help you be you-wonderfully you.

You Are Mine and If Only I Had a Green Nose (Wemmicks Collection)The kids love anything by Max Lucado who should be considered the "Nora Roberts" of the religous genre. Buy several and give as gifts to any child you know. They will love you for the gift.
Wonderful Wemmicks Jan 9, 2007
This is a wonderful book with a mildly christian theme. The morals taught in these books are simple and wholesome. Max Lucado has done a wonderful job and I would recommend this collection of books for anyone looking to help teach their children their value in the eyes of the lord.
