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.
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.
One morning the people of Wemmicksville wake up to discover that they've all received gifts. Punchinello opens his gift to find a hammer; Lucia receives a paintbrush and set of paints; and Hans, the baker, gets a spoon. Nobody knows who sent the gifts, but each Wemmick receives the perfect gift: Punchinello likes to build, Lucia loves to paint, and Hans enjoys cooking.

When a family of Wemmicks needs help to reach Eli the woodcarver, Punchinello and his friends try to come to their aid. Unfortunately, nothing they do seems to work. Only when they realize that Eli gave them each a special gift are they able to use those gifts to make a difference.

This story will show kids how God has given them a special gift they can use to serve Him.
