Product Overview

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
Annotation This ninth entry in the series that recounts the terrible and tragic lives of the Baudelaire orphans finds them disguised as freaks while hiding out with a carnival. To make matters even more unbearable, they must face such horrors as an ambidextrous person, a terrible lie, and Chabo the Wolf Baby.
Editors Note Dear Listener,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: Perplexing wordgamesPhotos from The Lemony Snicket ArchivesArt from The Brett Helquist gallery 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, Lemony SnicketPerformed by Tim Curry
First Line When my workday is over, and I have closed my notebook, hidden my pen, and sawed holes in my rented canoe so that it cannot be found, I often like to spend the evening in conversation with my few surviving friends.
Annotation 3 The tragically unlucky Baudelaire orphans are still on the lam, but their brief and terrible sojourn at the Caligari Carnival might just be the ticket to unraveling the mysteries of V.F.D. Disguised as freaks, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny must endure unbelievable horrors--including an ambidextrous person, a terrible lie, and a pit of lions. This is the ninth book in the riveting, endless Series of Unfortunate Events titles. With B&W illustrations.
