This book is perfect for a Serise of Unfortunate Events fans. You can chalenege yourself with cracking codes. This book is beautiful in every single way. But beware if you think this book is going to be revealing the story around beatrice and lemony think again just when you think you figured it out a killer twist comes up.Filled with letter and such this book is great for a time filler and mind thriller.

Homosexuality in Beatrice's Letters?

I was laughing out loud while reading Lemony Snickett's Beatrice's Letters, when I happened upon this quote:

"I will love you if you don't marry me. I will love you if you marry someone else-Your co-star, perhaps, or Y., or even O., or anyone Z. through A., even R.-...
I was laughing out loud while reading Lemony Snickett's Beatrice's Letters, when I happened upon this quote:

"I will love you if you don't marry me. I will love you if you marry someone else-Your co-star, perhaps, or Y., or even O., or anyone Z. through A., even R.-although sadly I believe it will be quite some time before two women can be allowed to marry--"

I don't know about you, but I don't think children should be indoctrinated about homosexuality behind their parents' backs. Interestingly enough, this quote is embedded in the longest letter contained in the book ... a letter that most parents would probably never even read. I was reading the book cover to cover intending to order the book for my fourth grade classroom. I will not be ordering the book.

Lemony Snicket is a great children's author who should stick to what he knows best - making children laugh. He should not insert his personal philosophy in books intended for children. For those of us who believe that homosexuality is morally wrong, we don't need Snicket telling our children otherwise.
