The End of the Mennyms?

Mennyms Alone by Sylvia Waugh
: September 1, 1998 by Avon Camelot
First Published: November 19 1996
Series: Mennyms #4
Without giving to much away, this book is completely different than any of the other Mennyms books. At least the second half is like none other in the series, while the first half is exactly what you'd expect. While this is somewhat of a surprise, I do think it's something that made sense and probably needed to happen for this series.

I do love all the coincidences in this book. There's several characters that reappear from earlier books in the series, and while it was obviously intentional by the author, they all feel like such a lucky break. Plus it's fun to check in with these others characters and see what became of them.

Growing up, I always assumed this was the last of the series. It wasn't till college when I learned there was one more! But while I do love the last book and think it is needed to wrap up a few loose ends, in some ways I do think if this had been the last it would have been a beautiful and somewhat poetic to end the story of the Mennyms.


Today I'm linking up with Blonde Undercover Blonde for Book Club Friday!


  1. I'm really looking forward to checking this book out. I'm getting it out of the library today!

    1. And by "this book" I mean the first one in the series.

    2. I was hoping you meant that! It is a pretty adorable series, and I hope you enjoy it just as much as I did, and well still do.
