Product Overview

Dear Listener,

I am sorry to say that the lives of the Baudelaire orphans, Violet, Klaus and Sunny, are filled with bad luck and misery. All of the stories about these three children are unhappy and wretched, and the one you are holding may be the worst of them all.

If you haven''t got the stomach for a story that includes a hurricane, hungry leeches, cold cucumber soup and a doll named Pretty Penny, then this audio will probably fill you with despair.

I also shouldn''t mention the interactive features of the CD, which include: A perplexing word game Photos from The Lemony Snicket Archives Art from The Brett Helquist gallery

I will continue to record these tragic tales for that is what I do. You should decide for yourself if you can possibly endure this miserable story.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket

From the Publisher
Annotation In this third entry in the Series of Unfortunate Events chronicles, the much-pitied Baudelaire orphans are now living with their extremely phobic, grammar-loving Aunt Josephine. Naturally, the horrible Count Olaf pursues them in the devious guise of Captain Sham, and none of the feckless adults can kept the children's tattooed enemy--who, as always, has money and murder on his mind--from wrecking everything. This is the third title in the violently popular series by one Lemony Snickert.
Annotation 1 In this third entry in the Series of Unfortunate Events chronicles, the much-pitied Baudelaire orphans are now living with their extremely phobic, grammar-loving Aunt Josephine. Naturally, the horrible Count Olaf pursues them in the devious guise of Captain Sham, and none of the feckless adults can kept the children's tattooed enemy--who, as always, has money and murder on his mind--from wrecking everything. This is the third title in the violently popular series by one Lemony Snickert.
Annotation 2 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 follows prove to be an enthusiastic bunch. Illustrated with occasional B&W, gothic-style illustrations.
First Line If you didn't know much about the Baudelaire orphans, and you saw them sitting on their suitcases at Damocles Dock, you might think that they were bound for an exciting adventure.
