The Carnivorous Carnival ( CD)
|HarperCollins regrets to inform you that the depressing adventures of the Baudelaire orphans are now available in a brand-new audio format. In addition to dredging up the unhappy tales of Book the Third through Book the Ninth for your listening displeasure, these CDs will infest your personal computer by offering games, illustrations by Brett Helquist, music, and more. In fact, this alarming package will expose you to such disturbing details as evil villains, snapping crabs, secret passageways, and Chabo the Wolf Baby. Lemony Snicket has sworn to record the unlucky lives of the Baudelaire orphans. You, however, have not, and would be better off avoiding these woeful CDs.|
From the Publisher:
The word carnivorous means meat eating and this carnivorous volume contains such a distressing story that consuming any of its contents would be far more stomach-turning than even the most imbalanced meal.
It would be best if I didn't mention any of the unnerving ingredients of this story, particularly, an unruly crowd,a wooden plank, and Chabo the Wolf Baby. I also shouldn't mention the features of the interactive CD, which include:
Sadly for me, I continue to research the lives of the Baudelaire orphans, but your time might be filled with something more palatable. With all due respect,
Performed by Tim Curry
