The foreboding title—A Series of Unfortunate Events—sets the stage for this darkly humorous series. The adventures begin when the three young Baudelaire orphans are shipped off to live with Count Olaf—a grisly combination of the Smurf’s Gargamel and Annie’s Miss Hannigan. Olaf has the Baudelaire’s significant inheritance, and not their best interest, on his mind, and soon turns his charges into unpaid slave labor.
Lest you think this sounds like a dour story unsuitable for young readers, rest-assured that Snicket’s witty storytelling and tongue-in-cheek narration make for a highly-amusing read.
Tens of millions of Snicket fans can’t be wrong! Take a chance on this engrossing series at an irresistible price.
