A Series of Unfortunate Events

by
  • (41 reviews)

    A Series Of Unfortunate Events is a witty yet tragic set of books which tell of the unfortunate events in the lives of the three Baudelaire children. Violet Baudelaire is the oldest of them - she is an inventor. In every situation they find themselves in, Violet’s younger siblings can always count on her to conjure up a resourceful machine to aid their escape. Klaus is in the middle - he is the brains of the tragic trio. His knowledge of code breaking and logical mindset always come in handy. Sunny is the youngest out of her three siblings, but her secret power lies in her mouth. She is one of the few youngsters who have teeth as sharp as a shark’s, always helpful when they need to bite through a rope or get a villain off their back.
     
    Countless times they evade the notorious Count Olaf, a dastardly villain after their huge fortune, each of the thirteen books bringing a new challenge and mystery to the series. Every time one of their questions is answered, they get even more: what did their parents really do; why had they never heard of any of their relatives; and, most importantly, what was VFD?
