From the Publisher:
Unless you are a slug, a sea anemone, or mildew, you probably prefer not to be damp. You might also prefer not to read this book, in which the Baudelaire siblings encounter an unpleasant amount of dampness as they descend into the depths of despair, underwater.
In fact, the horrors they encounter are too numerous to list, and you wouldn't want me even to mention the worst of it, which includes mushrooms, a desperate search for something lost, a mechanical monster, a distressing message from a lost friend, and tap dancing.
As a dedicated author who has pledged to keep recording the depressing story of the Baudelaires, I must continue to delve deep into the cavernous depths of the orphans' lives. You, on the other hand, may delve into some happier book in order to keep your eyes and your spirits from being dampened.
With all due respect,
The 11th entry in the popular Series of Unfortunate Events books surprisingly opens on a note of good fortune, but naturally, this doesn't last for long. The Baudelaire orphans--Violet, Klaus, and Sunny--make a new friend, discover old treachery, and battle some very volatile, deadly fungus as they continue their quest for answers. Sadly, their previous interaction with Count Olaf was not their last, and his new followers prove to be an enthusiastic bunch. Illustrated with occasional B&W, gothic-style illustrations.
