Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Snowy highlands can be a welcome destination for those who have been working hard. The Mortmain Mountains, where youngsters can enjoy skiing, snowshoeing, and celebrating an early spring, seems to be a perfect place for the weary Baudelaire orphans to spend some time after their difficult journey.

For Violet, who likes to invent things, the mountains may offer a chance to apply her mechanical skills to an icy test. And for Klaus, who enjoys reading, there may be an opportunity to apply his skill with words to deciphering a well-hidden code. And for Sunny, who has four sharp teeth and enjoys biting things, a mountain hideaway in the company of hungry villains may allow her to apply her toothy skill to provide the villains with food.

The fresh air of this wintry wonderland seems a perfect haven for three highly skilled orphans, who will be well-prepared if their stay in Mortmain Mountains turns out to be the most chilling yet in a series of unfortunate events.

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.
