Description: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are intelligent children. They are charming and resourceful, and they have pleasant facial features. Unfortunately, they are exceptionally unlucky. From the very page of The Bad Beginning, when the children receive terrible news while enjoying a day at the beach, continuing right on through the entire series, disaster lurks at their heels.

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 odor.

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 likable, resilient, and unfortunate children in search of a home been quite so enchanting, or quite so uproariously unhappy.
