Overview

SOON TO BE A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES

Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are intelligent children. They are charming, and resourceful, and have pleasant facial features. Unfortunately, they are exceptionally unlucky.

In the first two books alone, 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.

In the tradition of great storytellers, from Dickens to Dahl, comes an exquisitely dark comedy that is both literary and irreverent, hilarious and deftly crafted. Never before has a tale of three likeable and unfortunate children been quite so enchanting, or quite so uproariously unhappy.

Meet the Author

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.

I have read almost all his books there all fantastic. I love the way he writes and then explains it but to be honest i already understand whats going on anyways. One thing i do find quite annoying is when he keeps repeating how sad the orphans are , and to be honest i know count olaf is bad but they really should be gratful they have a house. Anyways i love these books

Before I begin my review I would just like everyone to know that this artical is from the opinion of a child. I am eleven years old I read the Unfortunate Events Series almost everyday. I'm writing a review on the Reptile Room because it was on of my top two favorites. (The other is the Bad Beggining.) I give this book a five star rating because I think it's an outstanding book. When I first bought the first book of these series into school after I finished reading it I let a friend borrow it. Then I bought in the Reptile Room when it was first realesed I let another friend borrow it and it began a trend. Now everyone wants to get their hands on these great books. I liked the Reptile Room becasue I thought having doctor Lucafont being the hook-handed man was a very good twist. I also like that even though the story started out very pleasent for Violet, Klaus and Sunny Count Olaf still appeared in their lives again. I give all the books in his Lemony Snicket's series a five star review.
