The Lovereading4Kids comment

More destructive than a hurricane, and almost as damp. The third in this bestselling series (in fact in the top five of bestsellers of the last decade), sees the Baudelaire children moved to their third guardian, Aunt Josephine, who lives on a house overlooking Lake Lachrymose. Violet, Sunny and Klaus are three intelligent, charming and resourceful children but the relentless Count Olaf returns to try and steal their fortune in sinister style. Here they encounter lake monsters, suspicious Captains, allergic reactions, and much much more, all of which is revealed in the hugely entertaining, totally deadpan humour that has made this series so original and so captivating.

Throughout 2010 further titles will be released in the long-awaited paperback format. Rest assured we'll be the first to know when they're coming. To go to our special 'Series of Unfortunate Events' click here.

About the Author

Lemony Snicket

Lemony Snicket had an unusual education and a perplexing youth, and now endures a despondent adulthood. His previous published works include the thirteen volumes in A Series of Unfortunate Events, The Composer Is Dead, and 13 Words. His forthcoming book, “Who Could That Be at This Hour?”, which is the first question in a series of All The Wrong Questions, will be made available only to the general public on October 23, 2012. He is represented in all matters literary, legal, and social by Daniel Handler, author of the Printz Honor-award winning Why We Broke Up.

Lemony Snicket was born before you were, and is likely to die before you as well. His family has roots in a part of the country which is now underwater, and his childhood was spent in the relative splendor of the Snicket Villa which has since become a factory, a fortress and a pharmacy and is now, alas, someone else's villa. To the untrained eye, Mr. Snicket's hometown would not appear to be filled with secrets. Untrained eyes have been wrong before.

Though his formal training was chiefly in rhetorical analysis, he has spent the last several eras researching the travails of the Baudelaire orphans. This project, being published serially by HarperCollins, takes him to the scenes of numerous crimes, often during the offseason. Eternally pursued and insatiably inquisitive, a hermit and a nomad, Mr. Snicket wishes you nothing but the best.

Due to the world-wide web of conspiracy which surrounds him, Mr. Snicket often communicates with the general public through his representative, Daniel Handler. Mr. Handler has had a relatively uneventful life, and is the author of three books for adults, The Basic Eight, Watch Your Mouth, and Adverbs, none of which are anywhere near as dreadful as Mr. Snicket's. Like Mr. Snicket, Mr. Handler wishes you nothing but the best.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
