    'The Bad Beginning'
    A sorrowful tale of tragedy and woe, that goes form bad to worse, and then some . . .

    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.

    'The Reptile Room'
    Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are intelligent children. They are charming and resourceful, and they have pleasant facial features. Unfortunately, they are exceptionally unlucky. Disaster always lurks at their heels.

    In the first book, and this sequel to the bestseller, 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.

    'The Wide Window'
    How lucky that Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire have a new home to settle into with their Aunt Josephine. Even though their aunt is unusually nervous and the lake over which their new home dangles is teeming with leeches, things could be worse. For instance, evil Count Olaf could turn up. Now that would be unfortunate.

    But if you've read anything about the Baudelaire orphans, you already know that though they are charming and clever, they are extremely unlucky. Every story about them, unfortunately, is filled with misery and woe. And this story may be the worst yet. In this book, the children will endure a hurricane, cold cucumber soup, a leaky sailboat, an allergic reaction, a pile of tin cans, and a doll named Pretty Penny.
