I think 22 feet is a little tall myself, but in defense of Matthew's
figures, isn't one of the features of the godlings that they have
characteristically small eyes? E.g., Horn says to the godling who picks him
up: "Your eyes seem very small to me, but that's only because they are small
in proportion to your face." (RTTW, 139)
