Mennyms Alone
Mennyms Alone
by Sylvia Waugh
Edition: Paperback

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
4.0 out of 5 stars Endearing book series, 13 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Mennyms Alone (Paperback)
Mennyms Alone is the fourth of the five book series. Because I read them all sequentially as a child I cannot say how good it is as a stand alone book - don't get me wrong I love all of them - but I do think as with all sagas it's best to start from the beginning and work your way through. It mainly deals with the Mennyms losing their 'magic' power and how the humans who come across them deal with the family of dolls. From this point it is quite interesting because most of the time we are only brought into the world of the Mennyms, not that of human families. Definitely worth a read, as goes for the rest of the Mennyms series:
book 1 The Mennyms (The Guardian 27th Children's Fiction Award Winner), book 2: Mennyms in the Wilderness (Red Fox Older Fiction), book 3: Mennyms Under Siege and book 5: Mennyms Alive (Red Fox Older Fiction). A must for all those dreamy kids who love fantasy. I still half believe that soft toys come alive when you leave the room, and I'm in my 30s! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great 90s UK rnb, 24 Nov. 2011
This review is from: The Album (Audio CD)
Troi were a pretty amazing group from the 90s, had no idea they were from the UK. This is a great album and shows the best of British. Some great tracks on here like 24 Hours and Need Your Love. Wonder what happened to them. My only disappointment was that the remix for 24 Hours was not on the album. Am desperately trying to find it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mellow soul, 24 Nov. 2011
There are some lovely tracks on this album, Eric has the smoothest voice. A great soul album, maybe not as brilliant as Esoteric but still very very good. Recommended for any Eric Roberson fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mellow and lovely, 19 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Esoteric (Audio CD)
This man has an amazing voice. This is his first studio album, and I love it. Seeing as so much of the music today is so manufactured and samey, it has been really refreshing during the last couple of weeks to listen to something mellow and soulful in the morning whilst getting myself sorted for work. A definite must in any soul music fan's collection. I will be buying up Eric Roberson's other albums for sure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious comedy in vein of Father Ted and Spaced, 14 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not everyone's cup of tea, but Black Books was definitely one of the funny British sitcoms from the 90s. If you're a fan of Bill Bailey and Dylan Moran you will like this! Similar to Father Ted (one of the writers was involved in this - not sure which one came first?) it had a dark aspect to it due to poor Manny (Bill's character) being treated like dirt alot of the time, but some hilarious episodes, such as Manny being mistaken for Jesus in the first episode, and him modelling for Iranian comedian Omid Djalili, who played a weirdo who liked scruffy bald beardy types :)
