Lemony Snicket.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6�10—Here's a treat for readers: a book about a favorite author written in a clever imitation of his signature style. Abrams delivers a witty account of his subject, directly addressing readers and using Snicketesque espressions like "what allusion means in this case." He presents a substantive look at Snicket/Handler, including synopses of and reactions to his adult books, his major influences, and musical interests. Abundant secondary-source quotes, full-color photos and film stills, and a chapter devoted to the series that made him famous will appeal to many readers. This lively biography will not disappoint.—Rebecca Donnelly, Loma Colorado Public Library, Rio Rancho, NM
