This bestselling series (in fact in the top five of bestsellers of the last decade), now at long last available in paperback. Deeply ironic and highly regarded, the series regales readers with the hugely entertaining details of the tragic life of the orphaned Baulelaire children, Violet, Klaus and Sunny continues in two further volumes for which all series fans have been waiting.
The Slippery Slope, Book the Tenth, tells of the terrible time the children have enduring snow gnats and freezing conditions and going up and down mountains in the ranks of the Snow Scouts.
The Grim Grotto, Book the Eleventh, sees the orphans venture underwater to new travails of despair in an unpleasant amount of dampness. Both books are irresistible additions to the famously funny gloomy series.
There is nothing to be found in the pages of these books but misery and despair. You still have time to choose something else to read. But if you must know what unpleasantries befall the charming and clever Baudelaire children read on... The Grim Grotto . Unless you are a slug, a sea anemone or mildew you probably prefer not to be damp. But unfortunately the Beaudelaires encounter an unpleasant amount of dampness as they descend into the depths of despair, underwater. You may wish to delve into some happier book in order to keep your eyes and your spirits from being moistened.
