Best of All

By Max Lucado, Illustrated by Sergio Martinez

... Show All

Bess Stovall is famous for being famous. "When it comes to Wemmicks, she's the best," they say. Who wouldn't want to join her Wonderful Wemmicks Club? The catch is this: only Wemmicks made of maple can join–the best wood from the best forest.

But Punchinello can't join since he is made of willow. "Willow is weak wood," says Bess. "No one wants to be a willow." And Punchinello is the only willow in Wemmicksville. Everyone looks down on him, even his friend Lucia.

Punchinello learns a valuable lesson when Eli the woodcarver helps him see that he is special because the Maker made him–the Maker even chose his wood. This latest tale from Wemmicksville will surprise you as Punchinello himself shocks the town with how special he really is.

Part of the Max Lucado's Wemmicks series.
