Written and illustrated by Lemony Snicket
I'm sorry to say that the book you are holding in your hands is not like fairy tales with happy endings, it is a very unpleasant story. This book tells about three very unlucky children. Even though these children are clever and charming their lives are filled with misery and woe. From the very first page of this book when the children are at the beach they receive some terrible news. After this incident disaster lurks at their heels. In this short book alone, the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain who provides cold porridge for breakfast and a long list of chores. What could you do to help the children?
