Beware — Not for fans of happy endings!

After the sudden death of their parents, the three Baudelaire children must depend on each other and their wits when it turns out that the distant relative who is appointed their guardian is determined to use any means necessary to get their fortune.




About the Author

Lemony Snicket was born in a small town in which the inhabitants were suspicious and prone to riot.  He now lives in the city.  During his spare time he gathers evidence and is considered something of an expert by leading authorities.




Praise For A Series of Unfortunate Events #1

"Written with old-fashioned flair, this fast-paced book is not for the squeamish: the Baudelaire children are truly sympathetic characters who encounter a multitude of distressing situations.  Those who enjoy a little poison in their porridge will find it wicked good fun." -Kirkus Reviews
