Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Carnivals can be so much fun. They can feature wonderful rides, delicious snacks, remarkable souvenirs, and interestingfortune-tellers. What a perfect place for three charming orphan children to spend some time.

For Violet, who likes to invent things, a carnival might offer just the right sort of broken-down contraptions to create a vehicle that could help her and her siblings escape certain disaster. Her brother, Klaus, who enjoys reading, might come across some interesting documents that reveal an important clue to a great mystery. And Sunny, who likes to bite things with her four sharp teeth, might find some interesting opportunities in a place where one of the attractions is a display of wild animals.

Indeed, a carnival seems like just the place for three highly skilled orphans, who may discover several opportunities to put their talents to use — particularly if the carnival turns out to be the worst yet in a series of unfortunate events.

Synopsis:

Dear Reader,

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.

To avoid causing discomfort, 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.

Sadly for me, my time is filled with researching and recording the displeasing and disenchanting lives of the Baudelaire orphans. But 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

Synopsis:

In this ninth installment of Lemony Snicket's serial, the Baudelaire orphans must confront a terrible lie, a lion untamer, an ambidextrous person, a caravan, and Chabo, the wolf baby. Illustrations.

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.
