Hmmm This should be a book that I loved The premise is just up my alley a family of life size rag dolls who outlived their creator only becoming sentient after she died But somehow it seemed to get stuck now and then and it wasn t easy to keep reading That said it is fascinating in its own way and the author created an unusual and compelling dilemma for her characters how to live and thrive without being found out by humans who we assume just couldn t handle it and dire results would ensue and with some of their differences from human beings I suspect if I had encountered this as a child when I read even voraciously and less critically it would have been one of my favorite booksNow I d like to read the second volume to see if the pace of Waugh s writing improves Other than the pace I did enjoy it a lot the thoughts and actions of the characters are really perceptive and sometimes uite sophisticated I think that the parts too sophisticated for most children to understand make this a interesting read for adults than much fiction for children although I am a huge fan of children s books and find that good children s lit is much better than most adult fiction So I think I ll probably read Mennyms in the Wilderness to see if it s a bit of an improvement If I don t particularly enjoy it I may still read the fifth and concluding volume since I m interested in how Waugh deals with what could be virtually eternal life at least compared to human life and how such beings might continue to thrive

Sylvia Waugh s The Mennyms is a fantasty based novel following the lives of the Mennyms a family of rag dolls that have come to life After spending many years of self induced solitude after their creator died they receive a letter from a mysterious man named Albert Pond stating that their old land lord has died and that he will be visiting them around Christmas The Mennyms are frantic Will their secret leak out Can the ignorant Albert Pond be persuaded into not coming How will this impact their lives from here on outThe Mennyms family contains nine members all who are eually featured in this story The first and most lethargic is Sir Magnus He spends most of his time in bed creating crossword puzzles for the newspaper as well as freuent articles The second is Tulip a talkative energetic grandmother who deals with all the bills and knitting The third is Magnus s son Joshua Joshua is practicalrealistic and down to earth His wife Vinetta is the fourth Vinetta loves all the domestic duties that being a mother brings and also enjoys entertaining Mrsuigley another rag doll created Soobie is the fifth Sad doleful and blunt he hates the playing pretend his family enjoys doing impassively pointing out guilty flaws of the family Appleby the sixth is a teen constantly tasting the bitterness of adolescence A master of pretend and a collector of stamps she is Magnus s favorite being smart energetic and unfortunately crafty Poopey and Wimpey the twins of the family are the seventh and eighth Constantly in a life of play they enjoy childhood and all the mischief that it comes with Googles the baby of the family spends all of her time in the crib occasionally being picked up by Vinetta for a diaper change And then of course is Msuigley While the Mennyms besides Soobie pretend that she lives in near by street in reality she lives in the hallway cupboard The Mennyms while they invite her over a lot agree that they can t handle her in but small doses and that she ll never be on the family All in all I think this book showcased betrayal life guilt and misery beautifully I recommend it to those who have some free time This book is both captivating and magical if you see it through

    Who or what the Mennyms are is best summed up by a few lines from Chapter Three; “They were not human you see — at least not in the normal sense of the word They were not made of flesh and blood They were just a whole lovely family of life sized ¬¬rag dolls”When Kate Penshaw died 40 years ago the ten dolls she cre

    This is a great story about a family of human size sentient rag dolls who live in an old house together Unlike so many books for this age range probably late elementaryearly middle school there's nothing edgy about this book but at the same time the characters aren't miluetoast and the story is surprisingly sophisticated I read it aloud to my 9 year old son and it was uite a hit

  10. says:

    I've always loved this book and still do I love the world created by Waugh which is so realistic I never once don't believe the dolls are alive She doesn't over analyse or try to scientifically or magically explain how they became sentient which I appreciate willful suspension of disbelief and all that Highly
