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.

The Baudelaire children are driven off a cliff in a taxi by a volunteer. They go into this hotel on a secret mission. They find out that once again Count Olaf is trying to steal their fortune. The Baudelaire children take jobs as concierges, and are sent to different parts of the hotel. Violet gets sent to the roof. Klaus gets sent to 6th floor. Sunny gets sent to 3rd floor. When they get to their floors, they find out that the people they see on their floor are people are people they didn't want to see again. I highly recommend this book because there is a lot of tension in there. The Baudelaire children are trying to keep their fortune away from Olaf. This book is the best book I have ever read.

I finnished reading book 13 almost a year ago and i still stay up some nights trying to solve the mysteries of VFD in my mind. I am going to make sure my niece starts reading these in 4th grade like i did. Lemony Snicket is a awesome writer. These books basically raised me. I did a project on Lemony Snicket and found out his real name is Daniel Handler and i have an actual picture of him!!!!!!!†

this series is the best of all time!! so captivating. better then the Harry Potter series. They should make a movie out of all of the books!!!!!!!

This book is written in a very creative and interesting way. It is very difficult to predict what will happen next. Also, the way the scenes are described, it is easy to make a mental picture. Furthermore, characterization occurs in a non-conventional way where the characteristics of young protagonists are attributed to the many hardships they have faced and to the values that they were taught long ago. It requires some analytical ability to fully understand the novel. It keeps the reader engaged and entertained. You do not want to put it down until you finish reading it completely. I totally recommend this book!

This book is one of my favorites. From beginning to end, it's a book that is hard to resist. After 11 books, you would think they would get boring, but that's definitely opposite(excluding the final book). If you haven't read any of the Snicket books, these and All the Wrong Questions, I suggest you do immediately!
