A Warning from the Publisher:

Many readers have questions about Lemony Snicket, author of the distressing serial concerning the trials of the charming but unlucky Baudelaire orphans, published under the collective title A Series of Unfortunate Events. Before purchasing, borrowing, or stealing this book, you should be aware that it contains the answers to some of those questions, such as the following:

1. Who is Lemony?

2. Is there a secret organization I should know about?

3. Why does Lemony Snicket spend his time researching and writing distressing books concerning the Baudelaire orphans?

4. Why do all of Lemony Snicket's books concerning a sad dedication to a woman named Beatrice?

5. If there's nothing out there, what was that noise?

Our advice to you is that you find a book that answers less upsetting questions than this one. Perhaps your librarian, bookseller, or parole officer can recommend a book that answers the question, "Aren't ponies adorable?"

    If you have read the sad tale of the Baudelaires and are looking for answers to those confusing questions you were left with... look elsewhere. If you thought you were going to be enlightened by this book, you are sadly mistaken. This book leaves you feeling even more confused, befuddled, and flabberghasted than ever before. You will, however, find a dryly humorous book filled with symbolism and fun. I know it's supposed to be unfortunate, but Lemony Snicket is so funny you will find yourself laughing out loud!

      All books Lemony Snicket are worth a read. If you've read A Series of Unfortunate Events, you very likely have questions... questions you thought would never be answered. And here is this book, here for all the taking, and there is no way to resist it... I will look for this all over until I can get my hands on it.

            A book with a suspicious connection to the series of unfortunate events.
