Overview

Like bad smells, uninvited weekend guests or very old eggs, there are some things that ought to be avoided.

Snicket's saga about the charming, intelligent, and grossly unlucky Baudelaire orphans continues to alarm its distressed and suspicious fans the world over. The 10th book in this outrageous publishing effort features more than the usual dose of distressing details, such as snow gnats, an organised troupe of youngsters, an evil villain with a dastardly plan, a secret headquarters and some dangerous antics you should not try at home. With the weather turning colder, this is one chilling book you would be better off without.

Ages 10+

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.

Nothing can beat Harry Potter! I feel that this series is to elementary in its style and not as entertaining to the older 20 something crowd. Im not sure how I feel about it. You kinda have to get used to the way he wrights. The most anoying thing he does in the books is explain what words mean, in exactly the same way, on every other page. It gets really old quite quickly. I am on book 4 now, but for those die hard Potter fans, you'll be sorely disapointed with this series.

i really thought the Snicket books were great.. the first couple of them were original but now they've gotten boring and predictable... yes the Baudelaires escape once more to be caught once more.. bad guy always pops up and essentially each book is the same just different places different names but absolutely the same plot.. im ready for this series to start bringing back some new elements or possibly ending.

I really recommend this series.I am not a fan of scary books so I a little reluctant but this books cleverness took away all of that fear.anyone from 10 and up can read this book only because it has difficult language to understand .I even recommend this series for adults I think you will find this series quite delightfull.
