A rare, collectible edition of the wretched book that started it all.

Who hasn't had just about enough of the Baudelaires and their seemingly endless run of bad luck? For those who have not, and for Snicket fans, book-o-philes and weirdos of all descriptions, here is a tastefully packaged edition of this most distasteful book. This is the book to blame, the one that started it all.

An expanded text features an index, and the elegant slip-cased package includes a keepsake portrait of the heroes and villains that make the series so unpleasant to read. Exquisitely designed, this Rare Edition of the first book in 'A Series Of Unfortunate Events' will be beautiful - but don't let that fool you. The contents are as foul as ever . . .

Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are intelligent children. They are charming and resourceful, and they have pleasant facial features. Unfortunately, they are exceptionally unlucky. From the very first page of 'The Bad Beginning', when the children receive terrible news while enjoying a day at the beach, continuing right on through the entire series, disaster lurks at their heels.

The three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune, a lumpy bed, a deadly serpent, a large brass reading lamp, a long knife, and a terrible odour.

This exquisitely dark comedy is both literary and irreverent, hilarious and deftly crafted. Never before has a tale of three likable, resilient, and unfortunate children in search of a home been quite so enchanting, or quite so uproariously unhappy.
