Publisher Comments:

DISCLAIMER: Lemony Snicket is not responsible for side effects that may result from listening to this audio, including, but not limited to weeping, moaning and tearing out one's hair in despair.

Dear Listener,

The word "carnivorous," which appears in the title of this book, means "meat-eating," and once you have read such a bloodthirsty word, there is no reason to read any further. This carnivorous volume contains such a distressing story that consuming any of its contents would be far more stomach-turning than even the most imbalanced meal.

It would be best if I didn't mention any of the unnerving ingredients of this story, particularly a confusing map, an ambidextrous person, an unruly crowd, a wooden plank, and Chabo the Wolf Baby.

To avoid causing discomfort, your time might be better filled with something more palatable, such as eating your vegetables, or feeding them to someone else.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket

Performed by Tim Curry

Perplexing word games

Art from The Brett Helquist gallery

Sadly for me, I continue to research the lives of the Baudelaire orphans, but your time might be filled with something more palatable. With all due respect,

Synopsis:

The unabridged edition of the ninth book in the New York Timesbestselling A Series of Unfortunate Eventsseries.

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 a 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 lion untamer, an ambidextrous person, a caravan, and Chabo, the wolf baby. With millions of readers worldwide, and the Baudelaires' fate turning from unpleasant to unseemly, it is clear that Lemony Snicket has taken nearly all of the fun out of children's books

About the Author

Lemony Snicket grew up near the sea and currently lives beneath it. To his horror and dismay, he has no wife or children, only enemies, associates, and the occasional loyal manservant. His trial has been delayed, so he is free to continue researching and recording the tragic tales of the Baudelaire orphans for HarperCollins.
