I’ve read all five books in the series twice I read it the second time after buying a house because I wanted to read it in our new dwelling so that my reading experience would infiltrate the house’s atmosphere Yes that’s a weird notion but I can’t be the only one here who knows what I’m talking aboutThe premise? Three generations of rag dolls have lived for forty years in a house owned by a distant landlord During those forty years they have had no direct contact with the outer world though one doll has worked for years as a graveyard shift security guard living in what was essentially domestic bliss; though as it turns out some of the younger dolls would beg to differ But those forty years are not directly covered in the books rather we meet them in media res as book one opens with the receipt of a letter from the heir of the recently deceased landlord saying that he is traveling to England to see them This makes them all aflutter and the plot proceeds from there through five books of vicissitudes and familial problems; through seeming death and reanimation; through sacrificial bonfires sueamish; through live rag dolls having to pretend they're inanimate rag dolls; and finally through the purchase of a new house that restores their previous domestic order and social invisibility and presumably 40 years of homely bliss with inevitable interior dramasAll five books are fantastic They are droll and wise and slightly satirical and even delve into metaphysical issues and fundamental notions of what it means to exist all with the lightest of touches If I had my way the Mennym series would be in every middle school library I fell in love with the first one in 1994 so much so that Iwrote a fan letter to Sylvia Waugh the author I subseuently met her at the Children's Literature New England conference in Cambridge England and we have been corresponding ever since But even had I never met her I would love these books Each of the Mennyms human sized rag dolls who have been mysteriously endowed with life is such a complete well rounded person that their world becomes as real as a fictional world can be Teen ager Appleby especially is not to be missed 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

About the Author: Sylvia Waugh

The Mennyms which eventually evolved into an entire series Ms Waugh said in an Entertainment Weekly interview with Lois Alter Mark I created the Mennyms because the world is too cynical too lacking in magic People with dreams are an endangered species and I wanted to write for them I don't want the nastiness the stuff I see on TV Since completing her Mennyms books Waugh has continued her focus as Horn Book contributor Martha V Parravano noted on what it means to be human by exploring the lives of those who are not
