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 likeable and unfortunate children been quite so enchanting, or quite so uproariously unhappy. 

Are you made fainthearted by death● Does fire unnerve you● Is a villain something that might crop up in future nightmares of yours● Are you thrilled by nefarious plots● Is cold porridge upsetting to you● Vicious threats● Hooks● Uncomfortable clothing●

It is likely that your answers will reveal A Series of Unfortunate Events to be ill-suited for your personal use. A librarian, bookseller, or acquaintance should be able to suggest books more appropriate for your fragile temperament. But to the rarest of readers we say, "Proceed, but cautiously."
