Snicket is back!

Lemony Snicket is one of the world’s most elusive and mysterious authors. Despite our warnings 60 million copies of his books have been sold – he’s the 5th bestselling children’s author of the last decade. That’s no mean feat.

This huge series of books (and movies) about the Baudelaire orphans - Violet, Klaus and Sunny - is at long last available to buy in paperback. Their brilliantly strange world in which, following the death of their parents, Count Olaf a distant relative who has designs on their inheritance, takes on the children and their misfortune begins.

With the paperbacks now available it's the perfect time to introduce new recruits to the series. Readers will get hooked immediately and want to read them all.

The stories are so immersive and well-loved that we thought we'd make them our Series of the Year for 2010! One to three are out now with the rest being published throughout 2010. Rest assured we’ll be the first to know when they are coming and we’ll provide taster extracts ahead of publication. This series was responsible for getting almost more kids reading than the Harry Potter Books and now with availability in paperback we believe a new generation will follow suit, particularly as the books are all quite short.

Dear Reader,

I’m sorry to say that these books tell an unhappy tale about three unlucky children. Even though they are charming and clever, the Baudelaire siblings lead lives filled with misery and woe. It is my sad duty to write down these unpleasant tales, but there is nothing stopping you from reading something happy. With all due respect, Lemony Snicket

So for all the brave readers who have yet to discover these dark tales, it’s probably best to keep away. If you do insist on reading them, don’t blame us – you have been warned.
