HARPERCOLL

NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES

Dear Reader,

You have undoubtedly picked up this book by mistake, so please put it down. Nobody in their right mind would read this particular book about the lives of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire on purpose, because each dismal moment of their stay in the village of V.F.D. has been faithfully and dreadfully recorded in these pages. I can think of no single reason why anyone would want to open a book containing such unpleasant matters as migrating crows, an angry mob, a newspaper headline, the arrest of innocent people, the Deluxe Cell, and some very strange hats. It is my solemn and sacred occupation to research each detail of the Baudelaire children's lives and write them all down, but you may prefer to do some other solemn and sacred thing, such as reading another book instead.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket

this book was amazing, and although I was mildly frustrated at the V.F.D. town council, i loved how at the end, you really notice how much she's developed since the "bad beginning".

This episode is filled with great phrases like "bolt out of the blue" and "entertaining a notion" and vocabulary of Lemony Snicket's readers continues to expand.

Love all the couplets from the Quagmire triplets and hate how easily Count Olaf and his minions continue to stymie the efforts of the Baudelaires to escape his clutches for good.

This next misadventure of the Baudelaires literally has them living out the saying "It takes a village ..."
