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

Wesley Stace is the author of three widely acclaimed novels: Misfortune, selected by the Washington Post and Amazon as one of the best novels of the year; By George, one of the New York Public Library’s 2007 Books to Remember; and Charles Jessold, Considered as a Murderer, one of the Wall Street Journal’s best fiction books of 2011.

Terry Gross started out in public radio in 1973 at WBFO, the NPR affiliate on the campus of her alma mater, the State University of New York at Buffalo. She became producer and host of Fresh Air in 1975, when it was still a local program. Fresh Air won a Peabody Award in 1994 for its “probing questions, revelatory interviews, and unusual insights.” In 2003 Terry herself received public radio’s highest honor, the Edward R. Murrow Award. She lives in Philadelphia with her husband, writer Francis Davis.

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.

He was last seen in a dimly lit area. You can visit him at www.LemonySnicketLibrary.com.

Rachel Maddow has hosted the Emmy Award–winning Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC since 2008. Before that, she was at Air America Radio for the duration of that under-appreciated enterprise. She has a doctorate in politics from Oxford and a bachelor’s degree in public policy from Stanford. She lives in rural western Massachusetts and New York City with her partner, artist Susan Mikula, and an enormous dog.

Libba Bray is the author of the New York Times bestselling Gemma Doyle Trilogy and the Diviners series, among others, and the author of Beauty Queens, which was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and Going Bovine, which won the Michael L. Printz Award.

Jon Scieszka is the National Ambassador for Children’s Literature emeritus and the bestselling author of more than twenty-five books for kids, including The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales; Math Curse; and the Frank Einstein series. He founded Guys Read to encourage a passion for reading among young boys, with the philosophy that boys love to read most when they are reading things they love. He is a former elementary school teacher.

Holly Black, acclaimed author of contemporary fantasy novels, she is the author of the Newbery Honor-winning novel Doll Bones and the coauthor, with Tony DiTerlizzi, of the New York Times bestseller The Spiderwick Cronicles. She has been a finalist for the Mythopoeic Award and the Eisner Award and a recipient of the Andre Norton Award.

Over the next seventeen years, he worked on nearly every NPR news show and did nearly every production job they had: tape-cutter, desk assistant, newscast writer, editor, producer, reporter, and substitute host. He spent a year in a high school for NPR, and a year in an elementary school, filing stories for All Things Considered. He moved to Chicago in 1989 and put This American Life on the air in 1995. In 2013 Ira Glass received the Medal for Spoken Language from the American Academy of Arts & Letters.
