With the Maker-Day Festival fast approaching, Punchinello wants to do something really big for Eli, the woodcarver. But everyone else he meets in Wemmicksville is also trying to make the best contribution to the festival.
Hans believes that his seven-layer chocolate cherry truffle cake with double butter-cream frosting will be the best part, but Violet is sure her bountiful bouquet will come out on top. Lucia knows her vocal solo will make the day, and Dr. Marvel is eager to show off his magnificent Marvellaphony-organoni. What can Punchinello do?

JennaMilwaukee, WIAge: Under 18Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5AmazingOctober 7, 2012JennaMilwaukee, WIAge: Under 18Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am 17 years old, and i went to a leadership camp this summer. While there one of the speakers actually read this book to us during their sermon. When he first told us he was going to read a story he used to read to his kids at bedtime i was thinkin ohhhh boy. However the Lord really spoke to me while he read the story it really showed how even a story meant for little kids can really impact even the lives of older people. The Lord rebuked me for caring to much about what other people think, and not enough about what he my heavenly Father thinks. He is the most important person and i should desire to respect him and please him above all others. It really meant alot to me and i just wanted to let people know :) thanks so much for making this available!
Thanks again Jenna

teacher of childrenwestern NYAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Another captivating book about Wemmicks and EliDecember 2, 2011teacher of childrenwestern NYAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the third in a series of stories about Wemmicks, and it again shows children how wonderful God is and how much He delights in His children and spending time with Him. I read it to a group of children I have in an after-school program, ranging in age from 6 to 11. I was afraid they might be a little distracted and bored because of its length, but they hung on every word. The story has a build-up of suspense, and when the climax came, I had a lot of reaction from the children-just what Max Lucado would have wanted!
