With this complete 13-volume box set you can experience Snicket in the worst way possible: from beginning to end! From the horrible fire that started it all to the unforgettable events that end it — the Baudelaires' misfortunes have finally been contained in one exquisite box!

Synopsis:

For readers who deserve the very worst, all thirteen volumes in Lemony Snicket's best-selling A Series of Unfortunate Events are now available in one terribly heavy package. Slip-cased in an excruciatingly exquisite box, readers can now uncover the entirety of the Baudelaire's misfortunes—right from The Bad Beginning through to The End. There is nothing worse than having all thirteen of Lemony Snicket's books in one place, except, perhaps, reading them.

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 like these books. They have encouraged one of the children I care for to spend a lot of time reading instead of watching TV and video games. I would recommend these books for anyone with children.
