Max was interested in helping children understand their value-not from the world's perspective, but from God's. Wemmicksville is a land created by Eli, the "God" figure of the story. He creates each Wemmick in Wemmicksville uniquely, each with its own look and personality. Each story and video is a new adventure with the citizens of Wemmicksville. Punchinello is the central character, along with his friends Lucia, Splint, and Chip. When Punchinello strays from Eli, he begins to have problems. Only when Punchinello stays close to Eli does he clearly see how to walk through his life in Wemmicksville.
In this delightful book, Punchinello learns how important it is to be who we were created to be, no matter how much we want to fit in. Readers learn that we are each made unique for a reason and that the Creator will always help us be who we were created to be.
