Wonderful Series

These books are for my 10 yr old granddaughter as she loves this series very much!


More Unfortunate Than Ever

by bookishwench on Aug 9, 2010

Lemony Snicket does it again, giving the reader more woe for the Baudelaire orphans, a villain who rivals Count Olaf in the creeps department, and even some new tantalizing hints into the life of the mysterious, dead Beatrice.


Best by Snicket!

I use to not like reading, but seeing as I still needed to read books for school I started reading the Series of Unfortunate Events. I really think these books helped me become the book crazed girl I am today. I think out of the fourteen by Snicket this is his all time best I couldn't put it down the first time I read it!


Wonderful children's book

by msmonarch on Jul 6, 2007

I volunteer at an elementary library and started reading the series. They were always being checked out so I wanted to aquaint myself with them. It is an excellent series for a child to learn cooperation and the relationship of siblings. Even though it is an unhappy book to see three children overcome a bad situation and to take care of each other is amazing. You are compelled to keep reading just to see what happens next.
