A chapter book for the older reader illustrated by Brett Helquist.

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.
