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 board book, Punchinello learns that it's
not what you have that counts, but who you are.
