The Wide Window: Or, Disappearance! (Series of Unfortunate Events #03) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The third book in the horrifically popular A Series of Unfortunate Events is now available in paperback. Are you still there? No? Good. Oh heavens, you're back. That heart palpitation is never a good sign.

But neither is a hurricane. Or a leech. Or a signal in a sinking boat full of orphans and a scared aunt.

But the worst sign is the one that says, "Over 51 million books in print!" Of course, that sign could get ever more horrendous as these wicked new editions are released unto the world. Awful new artwork, terrible bonus material, and a disgustingly soft cover — all signs of a truly unfortunate event.

Synopsis:

If Oliver and Celia Navel had any hopes this year would be less life-threatening than the last, their hopes are quickly shattered…along with their television set. When a strange scientist warns them that their mother is—yet again—in peril, it’s off to the Pacific Ocean they go. But navigating stormy seas proves easy compared to tackling a Kraken—an enormous squid—and the twins think they might have bitten off more than they can chew.  In their quest for Atlantis, Oliver and Celia are in the worst trouble of their young lives; and survival comes down to one seemingly impossible task: giving a squid a wedgie.

Synopsis:

Wilma chases down ghosts and hidden treasure in her third endearing mystery

Mystery is afoot when Wilma and her dog, Pickle, snuffle up a mummified body holding an ancient-looking key at Blackheart Mansion, home of the wealthiest family on Cooper Island. When it is revealed that the body belongs to a long-lost ancestor, Bludsten Blackheart, the family fights over Bludsten's key and races to find the treasure it unlocks--rumored to be guarded by a fatal phantom. And just when things reach fever pitch, Wilma discovers another clue about who her parents may be.

In turns heartfelt, hilarious, and mysterious, Wilma's newest adventure is sure to please the budding detective in all of us.
