The Lump of Coalby Lemony Snicket
Synopses & Reviews
This is a story about a lump of coal who can think, talk, and move itself around.
Is there a more charming holiday tale to behold? Probably, but Lemony Snicket has not written one.
"A lump of coal, traditionally the dreaded stocking stuffer from Santa Claus to children on the Naughty List, is not such a dreaded gift at all if you are an abstract artist....If you love Christmas stories, then this one will be a welcomed addition to your collection. It is truly a gift." Children's Literature
"[T]hought-provoking and captivating, and sure to be in demand." School Library Journal
"The volume's size, as well as the book in general, may strike many as diminutive, which here means small in stature, but make no mistake as to its usefulness, as many a Christmas stocking will accept such an endeavor in lieu of a real lump of coal." Kirkus Reviews
About the Author
Lemony Snicket claims he was nowhere near the scene of the crime. He is the author of several other unpleasant stories, including those in the bestselling A Series of Unfortunate Events and The Lump of Coal.
