A Series of Unfortunate Events #01: The Bad Beginning Rare Edition with Frameby Lemony Snicket
Synopses & Reviews
"Rare" is a word which can mean either "not burnt to a crisp, and likely to make you ill" or "slightly harder to find." I'm sad to say that this rare edition of the bad beginning fits both of these definitions. In this alleged box, you will find the following:
It is my sad duty to provide these miserable materials to the public, but you are free to look for something easier to find and less likely to upset your stomach.
With all due respect,
Who hasn't had just about enough of the Baudelaires and their seemingly endless run of bad luck? For those who have not, and for Snicket fans, book-o-philes, and weirdos of all descriptions, here is a tastefully packaged edition of HarperCollins' most distasteful backlist title, The Bad Beginning. This is the book to blame, the one that started it all; a book that has sold more than two million copies and kicked off the miserable series that has sold more than ten million books worldwide. This rare edition includes an expanded text, featuring an index, and the elegant slipcased package includes a keepsake portrait of the heroes and villains that make the series so unpleasant to read in a reusable souvenir frame. Exquisitely designed, this rare edition of the first book in A Series of Unfortunate Events will be beautiful--but don't let that fool you. The contents are as foul as ever.
For Snicket fans, book-o-philes, and weirdos of all descriptions, here is a tastefully packaged edition of HarperCollins' most distasteful backlist title, "The Bad Beginning." This rare edition includes an expanded text and a slipcased package with a keepsake portrait. Consumable.
Imagine tales so terrible that as many as fifty million innocents have been ruined by them – tales so indelibly horrid that the New York Times bestseller list has been unable to rid itself of them for seven years. Now imagine if this scourge suddenly became available in a shameful new edition so sensational, so irresistible, so riddled with lurid new pictures that even a common urchin would wish for it. Who among us would be safe?
Begin at the beginning – evenif it is a bad one – with the first in A Series of Unfortunate Events, now even more disposable in paperback!
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.
