“If Only I Had a Green Nose” is the sequel to You Are Special, another meaningful children’s story by Max Lucado. This is the fourth book that I’ve read in this charming series. They don’t need to be read in order, as they all have their own unique meaning and take-away message. The illustrations have a nostalgic flair that adults and children will both enjoy.

It was fun connecting with my favorite little Wemmick again! In this book, Punchinello learns how peer pressure to ‘fit in’ can lead him down the wrong path.

Eli the woodcarver (who symbolizes God in the Wemmick series) created the Wemmicks as unique individuals—some tall, some short, some with freckles, etc.… But when Mr. Willy Withit, the pioneer of painted noses, comes to town and convinces everyone that a green nose will make them better, the crowds follow his lead. Punchinello ends up succumbing to the pressure and when the rules of ‘fitting in’ keep changing, he realizes he made a mistake. Thankfully, Eli is there for Punchinello and his friends and agrees to fix them back to their original and very special selves.

Not only is this story so much fun to read, but it shares a timely message in today’s era of ‘trends’ and ‘influencers’, where people are encouraged to be, do, look, and act like others. It’s important for children to learn that we are uniquely created individuals and THAT is what makes us special.

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?

When all of Wemmicksville gathers for the unveiling of the cake and the bouquet and Lucia's solo, Punchinello accidentally destroys the cake, the bouquet, and the Marvellaphony-organoni! What could have been a disaster results in the marvelous gift, and the people of Wemmicksville realize that Maker-Day is not about a cake or a bouquet - it's all about Eli.
