Those precious little books took six weeks to get here due to COVID-19, but now they have a new and loving home on the other side of the world! I did not think much of the first book. But the fear of discovery--that they are not human after all--demands both THE DANGER OF BECOMING TOO HUMAN. then, i tried reading it and read it all in one day! Mennyms in the Wilderness book.
