If I Only Had a Green Nose Review by Christine Field

By Max Lucado
Crossway, 2002

Do you have a child who struggles with wanting to dress like everyone else or do what everyone else does? This delightful storybook will teach a greater lesson than all the lectures in the world!

Punchinello is one of the wooden people who lives in the town of Wemmicksville where the concept of what’s cool keeps changing. First, it’s cool to have a green nose, then a red nose, then a pink nose, then a yellow nose - you get the idea. The residents flock to The Nose Coloring Store to keep up with the latest trend. After chasing to keep up with the fashion, Punchinello sees his foolishness and returns to his maker to be anded down to normal again - a painful, but necessary, process.

The book is delightfully illustrated by Sergio Martinez and is written in Lucado’s warm, convicting, powerful style. This is sure to be yet another Lucado children’s classic! ----
