The Wide Window : Netflix Tie-In Edition Paperback

Part of the A Series of Unfortunate Events series

Description

Dear reader,There is nothing to be found in these special tie-in editions of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events but misery and despair.

You still have time to pick another bestselling, Emmy-nominated, Netflix-adapted series to read.

But if you cannot be dissuaded, read on . . . Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are intelligent children.

They are charming, and resourceful, and have pleasant facial features.

Unfortunately, they are exceptionally unlucky. In The Wide Window the siblings encounter a hurricane, a signalling device, hungry leaches, cold cucumber soup, a horrible villain and a doll named Pretty Penny.

In the tradition of great storytellers, from Dickens to Dahl, comes an exquisitely dark comedy that is both literary and irreverent, hilarious and deftly crafted. Despite their wretched contents, A Series of Unfortunate Events has sold 60 million copies worldwide and been made into a Hollywood film starring Jim Carrey. And in the future things are poised to get much worse, thanks to the forthcoming Netflix series starring Neil Patrick Harris.

You have been warned. Are you unlucky enough to own all 13 adventures?The Bad Beginning The Reptile Room The Wide Window The Miserable Mill The Austere Academy The Ersatz Elevator The Vile Village The Hostile Hospital The Carnivorous Carnival The Slippery Slope The Grim Grotto The Penultimate Peril The EndAnd what about All The Wrong Questions?

In this four-book series a 13-year-old Lemony chronicles his dangerous and puzzling apprenticeship in a mysterious organisation that nobody knows anything about:`Who Could That Be at This Hour?'`When Did you Last See Her?'`Shouldn't You Be in School?'`Why is This Night Different from All Other Nights?'Lemony Snicket was born before you were and is likely to die before you as well.

He was born in a small town where the inhabitants were suspicious and prone to riot.
