This was a disappointing installment, in my opinion. I guess because the children were more "on their own" than in previous books, it just seemed more far fetched than the others and left me with a bad taste in my mouth.

If you value your life, do not I say, DO NOT! read this review... If you are still reading I must congratulate you for your bravery... What can I say.. The Bauldelaire children again are put though horrendous events it is quite disturbing & very sad. I recommend this volume only to my mortals enemies! Otherwise a delightful read!!
Please let your children read these books. Even as young as second grade will benefit from the writing style and the need to make crucial inferences with the storylines. These books are good for your kids' brains, parents. Excellent books!
