    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 what I wanted to happen.Past the second sequel, the series isn t quite as well done, but I still think this is an 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 ...

    This book was really amazing I loved all of the depth and levels that are hidden within the story On one level this is a cute little adventure about a family of living dolls, but at the same time it has a lot to say about being human I highly recomend this book to anyone, but come prepared to think
