Match wits with Lemony Snicket to solve thirteen mini-mysteries.

Paintings have been falling off of walls, a loud and loyal dog has gone missing, a specter has been seen walking the pier at midnight. Strange things are happening all over the town of Stain’d-by-the-Sea. Called upon to investigate thirteen suspicious incidents, young Lemony Snicket collects clues, questions witnesses, and cracks every case. Join the investigation and tackle the mysteries alongside Snicket, then discover the solution revealed at the end of the audio.

With narrators assembled from the well-known names from National Public Radio as well as children’s authors, this is a delicious experience that welcomes readers into Lemony Snicket’s world of deep mystery, mysterious depth, deductive reasoning, and reasonable deductions.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Don’t just be a lay-about. It’s time to solve mysteries with Lemony Snicket, the new millennium’s response to Sherlock Holmes. File Under contains accounts of thirteen suspicious incidents that the sleuth Mr. Snicket hopes you can help solve. After you have concluded your investigations, you can check your detections against the answers in the back of the book.”

    Barnes&Noble.com, editorial review

  • “Literary allusions and witty wordplay abound as expected, with the added fun of getting to play detective.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Each mini-mystery—just a few pages long—is chock full of wordplay, clever dialogue, noir references, and red herrings….By the end, not all mysteries are solved, nor all questions answered; whodunit aficionados will want to revisit again and again.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Snicketeers will relish the chance to revisit Lemony and several familiar characters.”

    Booklist

  • “The actual puzzles are dandy, and the format is ideal for the author’s approach of comic avalanche.”

    Horn Book

  • “This series of mysterious vignettes, with solutions withheld, allows sleuthing listeners to compare their own hypothesized endings to those revealed at the very end of the production. Each incident appears unrelated to the others, an aspect reinforced by the use of multiple narrators, men and women who deliver American, Australian, and English accents to voice Snicket and the inhabitants of Stain’d-by-the-Sea. The ensemble of narrators is composed of people who are talented and suspicious indeed—they include the crème de la crème of NPR and YA/children’s literature. The production ends with the conclusion to each mystery read by its respective Snicket. Listeners will all have their own personal favorites.”

About the Narrators

Chris Kluwe grew up in Southern California among a colony of wild chinchillas and didn’t learn how to communicate outside of barking and howling until he was fourteen years old. He has played football in the NFL, once wrestled a bear for a pot of gold, and lies occasionally. He is also the eternal disappointment of his mother, who just can’t understand why he hasn’t cured cancer yet. Do you know why these bio things are in third person? I have no idea. Please tell me if you figure it out.
