A Series of Unfortunate Events Collection: Books 1-3 with Bonus Material

The Bad Beginning, The Reptile Room, The Wide Window

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Lemony Snicket’s unhappy tale of the unlucky Baudelaire siblings begins with The Bad Beginning. In this short bothersome book alone, the three orphans encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune, and cold porridge for breakfast.

Should you not mind deadly serpents, slippery salamanders, lumpy beds, large brass reading lamps, long knives, and terrible odors, then proceed with caution to the second book in the miserable series, The Reptile Room.

Readers unbothered by inclement weather, hungry leeches, and cold cucumber soup will want to continue with the third installment, The Wide Window. Others will not.

If you’ve got the stomach to wade through the first three tragic tales in Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, then this troubling collection might be the one for you. Several loathsome extras, including a compilation of unsettling quotations and a very disturbing portrait, await those who successfully complete the wretched journey. You’ve been warned!

Best books ever

These are my fav books you should read them!

Absolutely amazing

This series is written in such an amazing way that I would promise myself to read only for thirty minutes,but end up reading for hours!!!!! I praise you Lemony Snicket for having the wits and talent to write a story like this. When you read it you feel as if you are one of the orphans standing there and feeling all of their emotions!!!!
