Certain people have said that the world is like a calm pond, and that anytime a person does even the smallest thing, it is as if a stone has dropped into the pond, spreading circles of ripples further and further out, until the entire world has been changed by one tiny action. If this is true, then the book you are reading now is the perfect thing to drop into a pond. The rippled will spread across the surface of the pond and the world will change for the better, with one less dreadful story for people to read and one more secret hidden at the bottom of a pond, where most people will never think of looking. (from the first line)

From the Publisher:
In the twelfth title of this highly popular series, Count Olaf is still evil, the Baudelaire Orphans do not win a contest, and the yet undetermined title will begin with the word "The".
Annotation:
The next to last book in the outstanding Series of Unfortunate Events collection--the most exciting and event-filled one yet--carefully careens through the hapless Baudelaire children's transformation from merely piteous orphans into spies, complete with jaunty little hats. Hotel Denouement, camouflaged to the point of insanity with the Dewey Decimal system, is the center of activity for the V.F.D., a mysterious, besieged secret organization for which the children now volunteer. Through a thicket of both evil and good operatives, including many familiar faces, they must maneuver to keep the world safe from the nefarious machinations of Count Olaf and his henchpeople. This is the 12th book in this fast-paced, long-winded middle-grade series. With B&W illustrations that take after Edward Gorey's work.
