Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dear Reader,

For many years, I have chronicled the lives of the Baudelaire orphans in a sequence of miserable and upsetting books entitled: A Series of Unfortunate Events. Rather than reading such depressing stories, you may prefer this Blank Book, in which you can write down your own miserable and upsetting research.

You may use this volume to record many dreadful things:

  • the names of suspicious teachers you have encountered
  • details of curious conversations you have overheard
  • dreadful information you have found in other books

This Blank Book also offers the following helpful features:

  • grimly decorated pages
  • numerous unpleasant quotations from A Series of Unfortunate Events
  • sinister stickers to help mark your most strange and shocking entries

But I must warn you that once you begin using this book, you must guard it with your life — or with the life of another allegedly trustworthy person.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket

Synopsis:

This may look like just another book in Lemony Snicket's wretched series. Looks are deceiving.

Just as Lemony Snicket has spent years researching the distressing lives of the Baudelaire orphans, now you too can record your own unfortunate events. The blank pages of this fraudulent book are perfect for writing down any secretive and upsetting research of your own, including the names of suspicious teachers; secret codes you have devised; details of sinister conversations you have overheard; maps of places that are important to you, and other crucial and woeful information.

With cover art by Brett Helquist, a beautifully designed interior, a page of black–and–white stickers, and quotations from A Series of Unfortunate Events, this journal is the perfect way for fans of Lemony Snicket to begin documenting their own alarming lives.

Ages 9–11

Synopsis:

The blank pages in this fraudulent journal are perfect for fans to write down any secretive and upsetting research they've done. A beautifully designed interior is complemented with a page of black-and-white stickers and quotations from the series. Consumable.

About the Author

Lemony Snicket was born before you were, and is likely to die before you as well. His family has roots in a part of the country which is now underwater, and his childhood was spent in the relative splendor of the Snicket Villa which has since become a factory, a fortress and a pharmacy and is now, alas, someone else's villa.

To the untrained eye, Mr. Snicket's hometown would not appear to be filled with secrets. Untrained eyes have been wrong before. The aftermath of the scandal was swift, brutal and inaccurately reported in the periodicals of the day. It is true, however, that Mr. Snicket was stripped of several awards by the reigning authorities, including Honorable Mention, the Grey Ribbon and First Runner Up. The High Council reached a convenient if questionable verdict and Mr. Snicket found himself in exile.

Though his formal training was chiefly in rhetorical analysis, he has spent the last several eras researching the travails of the Baudelaire orphans. This project, being published serially by HarperCollins, takes him to the scenes of numerous crimes, often during the off-season. Eternally pursued and insatiably inquisitive, a hermit and a nomad, Mr. Snicket wishes you nothing but the best.
