There is nothing to be found in the pages of A Series of Unfortunate Events but misery and despair. You still have time to choose another international best-seller to read. But if you must know what unpleasantries befall the charming and clever Baudelaire children read on...In The Wide Window we encounter a story that includes a hurricane, a signalling device, hungry leaches, cold cucumber soup, a horrible villain and a doll named Pretty Penny. With 5 million copies sold in the UK alone, one might consider Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events to make him one of the most successful children's authors of the past decade. We, however, consider these miserable so-called adventure stories and the Hollywood film starring Jim Carrey that accompanied the books for children as nothing more than a dreadful mistake.

Another great book of this series! I haven't finished this book yet but since I watched the show I know what happens.So after another horrible event count Olaf did once again, the children find another family member to love with. Her name is Aunt joesaphene( idk how to spell it lol) and she is cautious.............. very VERY cautious. She doesn't cook anything or touch the doorknobs or even use the phone bc even since her husband Ike died after being eaten by the leaches, she has been very scared of everything. A few days after the kids settled,or at least tried to, their aunt goes to a market and buys some limes. She comes home with a man. One without a left leg and an eye patch. His name is ''Captain Sham'' or at least that's what he says. The kids know from first sight this is Count Olaf. But they can't show proof that he is bc his tattoo of his eye is on his left leg. The one sham is ''Missing'' and he has a patch covering his unibrow . The kids do whatever it takes to show everyone that is Olaf. Something else happends to joesaphene and its tragic. But u have to finish this book to find out. Ty! I love this book! 5/5⭐

Leaves you still full of hope for the Baudelaires.

A fun,comedic,and tragic book.😁😀😢
