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. You ve been warned!

Just in time for the major motion picture-with a tie-in photograph of Jim Carrey et al. on the box-the first three tales in their cloth editions kick off A Series of Unfortunate Events Box by Lemony Snicket. The trio of books, The Bad Beginning; The Reptile Room; and The Wide Window, come packaged with a "two-faced" holographic sticker of Count Olaf (aka Carrey), first smiling, then scowling. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

this book is so unbeleievably good! i read it from stat to finish in a really short space of time because it just drew my attention from the get go! lemony snickets books are phenomenal! and the movie is pretty good to! but not as good as the books as they cram alot until 3 hours--thats why you should read this book! the trouble begins is really good

wicked first three books in this great series, which is at times depressing, but at all times gripping and exciting! a must read for any of the fasn of this series, or of books about orphans who get in all sorts of danger, and must solve many mysetries! read on in the series to find better books than thse!

I can not just get enough of this series of books. they are just so cleverly written and are so funny.
venture through the lifes of the three Baudalire children Violet. klaus and Sunny and the misery that follows their lifes. After a mysterious fire causes their paretns death, they are sent to live with Count Olaf. A very horrible man that is just after their money.

After a mysterious Fire the three Baudelaire children find themselves orphans. Each Book although short finds the children being placed into the care of a different close relitive (close geographically, not genetically). But by the end of each hope is dashed as the evil Count Olaf destroys any hope the children may gain.
All the while each of the Childrens talents are bent towards surviving Olafs schemes, and hopefully putting him away where he can never steal their Fortune which Violet inherits when she reaches 18.
