Every day Wemmicks do the same thing — either stick gold stars or gray dots on one another. The pretty ones, those with smooth wood and fine paint, always get stars. The talented ones do, too. Others, though, who can do little or who have chipped paint, get ugly, gray dots. Punchinello is one of these. In this delightful children's tale, children will love hearing how Eli the woodcarver helps Punchinello understand how special he is — marks and all.
