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.

    I recently recommended this book to a friend, a very sensitive friend, a Gilbert Sulliven listening light poetry reading friend who does not want to deal with anything that makes him squeamish one of his favorite words, which compels me to carefully poke his sensitive spots during our conversations to see exactly what he considers squeamish He s always asking what I m reading, and I say I m reading _____ and it s great but it ll make you squeamish DO NOT GO NEAR IT I don t even bring up Dennis Cooper

    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 subsequently 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 doll...

    3.5 STARSI was expecting a little from this story considering the reviews I m not exactly sure what I mean by , but I feel as though I missed out on the magic of the Mennyms I imagine as time passes their family s tale of trying to live life with its complicated mix of pretends and realities may grow on me Does anyone else ever have that problem where a story becomes better than the initial reading after you ve had time to ruminate over it a while The plot was very character driven, which is quite impressive c

    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 created came to life Miss Quigly and nine Mennyms were each born with their own histories and personalities Collectively they re able to tend to all the household needs, but they re careful not to draw attention t

    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 out Th

    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 elementary early middle school , there s nothing edgy about this book, but, at the same time, the characters...

    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 beca...

    Ho rincorso questo libro per anni, dopo averlo letto da bimba Che emozione, finalmente, reimmergermi nell ombrosa e cupa atmosfera di casa Mennym, dove bambole di pezza di grandezza umana hanno preso vita senza una precisa spiegazione e vivono assieme, condividendo ricordi che non hanno vissuto e rispettando una gerarchia familiare imposta dal loro aspetto fisico Una bellissima storia che riserver qualche colpo di scena persino per i grandi, anche se magari i pi piccini non apprezzeranno le parti pi angoscianti o tristi, di cui abbonda il li

    I still remember this book, and I haven t owned a copy in almost a decade.The idea of dolls being alive should be childish and silly, but in reality, it s quite a haunting, dark story The Mennyms are incredibly human in their worries and lives and conflicts, and I really came to empathize with them Each family member is distinct and memorable, and I often found myself torn between...
