Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Tim Curry, whose appropriately unctuous and sometimes slimy delivery are a hallmark of the audiobook versions of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events titles, is thankfully up to his old tricks. Curry returns on the 11th installment, The Grim Grotto, to play Snicket, Count Olaf and all the gang with welcome flair. The enhanced CD features word games, photos and artwork when played on a personal computer. Curry also returns as the linchpin on a new, multivoice recording of The Bad Beginning, the first book in the series, which ties in to the feature film release of Paramount/Nickelodeon/Dreamwork's Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events.

The Baudelaire orphans, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny continue to have more adventures in this book, the eleventh, in "The Series of Unfortunate Events." As they escape from the Mortmain Mountains, the trio finds themselves on a toboggan traveling down the Stricken Stream. They find themselves staring into a periscope sticking out of the water and their lives take another turn, as they become passengers on a submarine. This was my first look into the world of this delightful series. There are lots of exciting and heart-stopping moments. The author has a unique style that has the reader chuckling all through the story. Captain Widdershins and his stepdaughter, Fiona, try to help the orphans locate the sugar bowl before Count Olaf and his partners can find it. These are fast-paced books that will keep the reader turning the pages to reach the ending. I do suggest you start at the beginning of the series to understand all of the adventures until this point, if not, the story can still stand on its own as a great tale. Should I even hint that there is a glimmer of hope for the orphan trio as the book concludes? 2004, HarperCollins Children's Books, Ages 7 up.
