Overview

I hope, for your sake, that you have not chosen to read this book because you are in the mood for a pleasant experience. If this is the case, I advise you to put this book down instantaneously, because of all the books describing the unhappy lives of the Baudelaire orphans, The Miserable Mill might be the unhappiest yet. Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are sent to Paltryville to work in a lumber mill, and they find disaster and misfortune lurking behind every log. The pages of this book, I'm sorry to inform you, contain such unpleasantries as a giant pincher machine, a bad casserole, a man with a cloud of smoke where his head should be, a hypnotist, a terrible accident resulting in injury, and coupons. I have promised to write down the entire history of these three poor children, but you haven't, so if you prefer stories that are more heartwarming, please feel free to make another selection.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket

Ages 10+

Lemony Snicket had an unusual education which may or may not explain his ability to evade capture. He is the author of the 13 volumes in A Series of Unfortunate Events, several picture books including The Dark, and the books collectively titled All The Wrong Questions.


Brett Helquist's celebrated art has graced books from the charming Bedtime for Bear, which he also wrote, to the New York Times–bestselling A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket to the glorious picture book adaptation of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol. He lives with his family in Brooklyn, New York.


Michael Kupperman has done many illustrations for such publications as Fortune, The New Yorker, and The New York Times. He frequently writes scripts for DC Comics. This is his first book.

This book is a book that has described the 4th misfortune in the Baudelaire lives. It is really intersting and twisted! If you love lumbermills,Count Olaf's assitants' disguises,and Klaus being hypnotized over and over for a reason by his assitants, you have no other book to choose from!

A hypnotist, a receptionist, a lumbermill, and and three children who can't seem to get any luck. I'm afraid the book you're about to read is very unplesant. Even though the.lumbermill they live at now is called Lucky Smells Lumbermill, it still isn't lucky enough for the Baulderies. Will they be able to stop Count Olaf? And if not... are you next?

When I hear Olaf I think of a cute snowman. But not in this book I think of the nasty villain who tries to steal the Baudelaire fortune. The beginning started gloomy and had a weird setting. You would need to read the first, 2nd and 3rd to understand what happened. There new guardian owns a lubiermill. They get in trouble many times while only getting gum for lunch. The infint Sunny has to work there as well.

Quick, simple, and fun read. Still already tired of Count Olaf, but the story pattern changed up in this one, which I liked.
