The Austere Academy (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Bk 5)
The Austere Academy - A Series of Unfortunate Events, Bk 5 Author:Lemony Snicket, Brett Helquist (Illustrator) Dear Reader, — If you are looking for a story about cheerful youngsters spending a jolly time at boarding school, look elsewhere. Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire arc intelligent and resourceful children, and you might expect that they would do very well at school. Don't. For the Baudelaires, school turns out to be another miserable episod... more »e in their unlucky lives.
Truth be told, within the chapters that make up this dreadful story, the children will face snapping crabs, strict punishments, dripping fungus, comprehensive exams, violin recitals, S.O.R.E., and the metric system.
It is my solemn duty to stay up all night researching and writing the history of these three hapless youngsters, but you may be more comfortable getting a good night's sleep. In that case, you should probably choose some other book.
Wonderful series for preteen and young adult, as well as adult. Awesome for family reading time; fun to share and discuss in a group. The series got a little too dark for me, so I stopped reading it, but with all hopes of continuing in future. I still love the series!
