You Are Special tells the story of Punchinello, the wooden Wemmick. The inhabitants of Wemmicksville spend their days placing stickers on each other. Golden star stickers are put on the talented, smart, and attractive Wemmicks. Gray dot stickers are for those who make mistakes and don't stand out. Punchinello, despite his best efforts to get stars from the other Wemmicks, is covered in gray dots and begins to believe he'll never be worth anything. Then one day he visits Eli the woodcarver, his creator, and everything changes.

Max Lucado's beautiful story reminds us that we are precious to God just the way we are. Parents and children alike will enjoy this touching portrayal of an eternal truth. This bestseller has sold millions of copies and is now available as a special paperback gift edition and includes captivating illustrations by Sergio Martinez.
