The second in this bestselling series (in fact in the top five of bestsellers of the last decade), now at long last available in paperback, sees the Baudelaire children taken to their new guardian, Dr Montgomery, having escaped the evil Count Olaf in the first story.
More venomous than a viper, and almost twice as unnerving. Violet, Sunny and Klaus are three intelligent, charming and resourceful children but their newfound life is endangered when Count Olaf's final threat comes back to haunt them. Here they encounter deadly snakes, bizarre assistants. tattoos and disguises, strange behaviour 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.
