A Series of Unfortunate Events Books

With a title such as this it’s a wonder how this series could possibly make the New York Times Best-Selling List. Many have wondered “What was she thinking?” when she wrote the series. Such an imagination!!!

Even though Lemony Snickets' A Series of Unfortunate Events sounds like a bleak series of children books I picked up a copy and settled down with my nine-year-old granddaughter to see if she was interested. She was quickly engaged…

Who can survive the dire conditions in the Baudelaire chronicles? The Baudelaire orphans are survivors of personal & familial catastrophes!

These survivors are the three Baudelaire orphans : Violet, Klaus and Sunny. we become personally involved and invested in their outcome as we cheer them on while overcoming the obstacles. We laugh at the orphans' guardians even while they make us cringe. It’s hard to imagine such conditions. The terrible guardians will determine the fate of the orphans – or will they?

Here is a list of all the Lemony Snicket's books. Start with The Bad Beginning, the first in the kids series. Meet greedy Count Olaf and obtuse Mr. Poe in the book. Read the other early chapter books and follow the Baudelaire children's adventures straight to The End.

Read the complete list of books in A Series of Unfortunate Events series. Lemony Snickets, the author, has thirteen books from The Bad Beginning to The End.
