I'm sorry to say that the book you are holding in your hands is extremely unpleasant. It tells an unhappy tale about three very unlucky children. Even though they are charming and clever, the Baudelaire siblings lead lives filled with misery and woe. From the very first page of this book when the children are at the beach and receive terrible news, continuing on through the entire story, disaster lurks at their heels. One might say they are magnets for misfortune.
In this short book alone, the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune, and cold porridge for breakfast.
It is my sad duty to write down these unpleasant tales, but there is nothing stopping you from putting this book down at once and reading something happy, if you prefer that sort of thing.
With all due respect,

From a use to be non-reader.
These are the best books I have ever read!!! Every time I start to read I can't stop. The book turns real and is amazing!!! I read like 120 pages a day!!
Great Books... Ah, until...
I read through these like crazy.
I couldn't stop, and every time a new one came out, I was thrilled.
HOWEVER, about the time I reached the fourth or fifth book, I started having really odd/bad dreams.
I still don't know why, but I know that when I stopped reading the series my dreams were normal again...
Weird, I know, but true. :-/
I love this book!
I always had the urge of reading the next book as soon as I would finish one. This is a great book. Easy to read and guarantee kids will love it
