I'll add to the praise here. Lucado affirms the dignity of God's creatures (mankind, really; the Wemmicks are a metaphor for man, as they're sentient, thinking/feeling, etc.) in a stylistic way. The stories are wonderful, and as someone picky about theology, they're good in the sense of affirming our being created in the image of God. There's no Gospel here about redemption from sin, but that doesn't seem to be the point. Sin is illustrated in the actions of many of the Wemmicks in both stories, but there's no clear solution to the problem as you might find in R.C. Sproul's "The Prince's Poison Cup." But, again, this is no knock on Lucado. I don't think this two-in-one collection is meant to teach about redemption from sin.
What no other reviewer has mentioned, surprisingly, are the illustrations. These are masterful. Some of the best use of light, line, character, and composition that I've seen in a long time. Rarely do children's books have this level of artistry. Martinez captures human characteristics very well in the Wemmicks puppets. He has a great variety of characters, looks, expressions, and settings. Fantastic.

In You Are Special and Best of All, theWemmicks do many of the same things we do. Unfortunately, just likeus, they sometimes judge and label one another, often hurting thosewhom they see as unpopular or less than perfect. It is Eli theMaker who helps Punchinello understand how special he is, no matterwhat others may think.

In these heartwarming children's tales-in a special 2 Books in 1edition-from best-selling author Max Lucado and illustrator SergioMartinez, we see that it is God who made us the way we are. He didso on purpose and we don't have to be famous in order to bespecial. Both messages are vital for children everywhere: thatregardless of how the world evaluates them, God cherishes each ofthem, just as they are.
