You Are Special

by Max Lucardo, Illustrations by Sergio Martinez


Price: £7.99
Publisher:Candle Books imprint of Lion Hudson
Published:November 2004
You don’t know what a Wemmick is? Then you must read this book, meet Punchinello and the other wooden people carved by Eli the woodworker and find out what they get up to. Max Lucado tells a charming story that children will enjoy, but that has a serious message for us all. The illustrations help to make this a very special book. An ideal present.
See also the sequel You Are Mine another story of Punchinello and the Wemmicks.

Bought this for my 2yr old Grandaughter and just had to read it first. The illustrations are so beautiful. The story touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes. I have since purchased 'You are Mine'.Our children need more of these 'true' stories.
