Series of Unfortunate Events: The Beatrice Letters with Poster Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You shouldn't read other people's mail...especially when it is addressed to Lemony Snicket or someone named Beatrice.

The Beatrice Letters is an exquisite collection of personal correspondence that sheds light on the mysteries surrounding Lemony Snicket and A Series of Unfortunate Events. The Beatrice Letters contains evidence that should not be examined by anyone, including:

  • Unsettling photographs of suspicious objects
  • Hidden compartments containing disconcerting communications
  • A double-sided poster featuring confounding clues
  • Coded cut-out letters that reveal terrible secrets

Review:

"Those who can't wait for The End to Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events (book 13) due out on October 13 (that's Friday the 13th, naturally) with a 2.5 million-copy first printing can bide their time with The Beatrice Letters, which uncovers, in part, the mystery behind the lady to whom Lemony Snicket dedicates every book. A beautifully designed paper-over-board package contains the correspondence between the title mystery lady and the author, punchout letters that add to the intrigue, a full-color poster by series artist Brett Helquist all safely stowed in a handy accordion file. Miss it if you dare, as Snicket might say. And to be sure Unfortunate fans truly have everything." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Within the pages of this omnibus, readers will discover all three books upon which the movie Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events is based: The Bad Beginning, The Reptile Room, and The Wide Window. Like the movie, this thick volume tells an unhappy tale about three very unlucky children, who despite being perfectly well-mannered are perfectly ill-fated. From the very beginning of Book the First, when the children learn of a terrible fire, continuing on to the last page of Book the Third, disaster lurks at their heels. Unlike the movie, however, this book can be hidden under a bed where no one will ever see it again.

Synopsis:

This terribly tempting blank book offers ruled pages detailed with illustrations and quotable quotations from Mr. Snicket's archives. This journal is resilient enough to hold even the most revolting revelations from any budding young researcher or writer in disguise.

Synopsis:

Top secret — only for readers deeply interested in the Baudelaire case. How I pity these readers.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket

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.

I liked all of the stories, the adventures and explorations of each character, that even when there's a villain, they always have plans to surpass them.
