Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everybody loves a carnival! Who can fail to delight in the colourful people, the unworldly spectacle, the fabulous freaks?

A carnival is a place for good family fun - as long as one has a family, that is. For the Baudelaire orphans, their time at the carnival turns out to be yet another episode in a now unbearable series of unfortunate events. In fact, in this appalling ninth instalment in Lemony Snicket′s serial, the siblings must confront a terrible lie, a caravan, and Chabo the wolf baby. With millions of readers worldwide, and the Baudelaire′s fate turning from unpleasant to unseemly, it is clear that Lemony Snicket has taken nearly all the fun out of children′s books.

Ages 10+

Review:

"As soon as you read Snicket?s description of the 'belly of the beast' on page one, you will be hooked, even if you haven?t read any of the other books from A Series of Unfortunate Events....The Carnivorous Carnival is nothing like any of the other books I have read because of the suspense and the unusual circumstances of the Baudelaires. There was not a single part of the book that I did not like." Sutton Alford, Time for Kids

This is an excellent book with fine detail and magnificent phrases. "The belly of a beast" is an excellent phrase and adds suspense and mystery to this story. It is a pleasure to read such a suspenseful book with extreme quality. Each and every paragraph is beautifully written such as the paragraph of the Bauderlie Orphans almost being thrown to the lions. I recommend this book and all the other books in this series to all.
