But maybe it's being mentioned because it's so vague that it's not even gonna be shown
, and definitely not with Ruffel.
So that when continuing with the story readers will be like "did they say the Sunfolk were getting paler? They ain't."
After all; Wendy and Richard aren't above throwing in a few red herrings.

But they were mostly focused on the getting taller part.
