Lying, Greed, You are special

When Punchinello tries to prove his worth by getting more balls and boxes than the other Wemmicks, he learns that his maker, Eli, loves him because of who he is and not what he posesses.

This book is a good example of a modern fantasty since the main characters, the wimmicks, are wooden puppets who exhibut human characteristics like talking, eating, etc. The world they live in is also made up and has make believe aspects like wealth represented by boxes and balls. ( )

This is a good example of modern fantasy because the wooden dolls in this book are given human characteristics such as being able to talk, walk, and buy things. They are also able to think and have feelings, which is what this book is all about. The wooden puppets think it that having a lot of boxes and balls will make them feel important, but then the main puppet visits the person who made him and there he realizes that it was silly to get caught up in all of that. Although it is a fantasy, the reader can easily identify with the puppets as issues of identity and fitting in are common in today's world.

Media: pen and ink, watercolor ( )

Critique: This is a good exapmle of a fantasty because of how the main charaters are not real people, but instead wooden puppets called wimmicks that talk. It is also a fantasy because of how it takes place in an unrealistc world where boxes and balls represent wealth.
Genre: Fantasy ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0439436761, Paperback)

Finally, the citizens of Wemmicksville are saying that Punchinello is a good Wemmick! He's always wanted to hear that. But in his effort to please the crowd, Punchinello forgets what his maker Eli has taught him. So when others start collecting boxes and balls, Punchinello decides he wants to have some too. They make him feel so good–until he remembers how his arms ache from holding them all. Until he remembers how tired he is from working just to buy more. Until he stumbles into Eli's workshop and is reminded of how very much he's given up to have those boxes and balls.

Once again at the knee of his creator, Punchinello hears the words he needs the most: "You are special, not because of the things you have, but because you are mine." This best-selling sequel to You Are Special is now available in board book format, encouraging hearts of every age to learn of the love of their Heavenly Father.

When Punchinello tries to prove his worth by getting more boxes and balls than the other Wemmicks, he learns that his maker, Eli, loves him because of who he is and not what he possesses.
