Dear Listener,

If you have just picked up this audio, then it is not too late to put it back down. Like the previous books in A Series of Unfortunate Events, there is nothing to be found in these pages but misery, despair, and discomfort, and you still have time to choose something else to read. Within the chapters of this story, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire encounter a darkened staircase, a red herring, some friends in a dire situation, three mysterious initials, a liar with an evil scheme, a secret passageway, and parsley soda. I have sworn to write down these tales of the Baudelaire orphans so the general public will know each terrible thing that has happened to them, but if you decide to read something else instead, you will save yourself from a heap full of horror and woe.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket

Quotes & Awards

  • “Despite Snicket’s perpetual caveats to ‘put this book down and pick up another one,’ the Baudelaires are dynamic characters who inspire loyalty to the inevitable end of the series.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Tim Curry knows just how to deliver Snicket’s brand of alternately dry and over-the-top humor. The voices Curry creates are perfect.”


  • “Series fans will enjoy the quick pace, entertaining authorial asides, and over-the-top characterizations.”


  • A USA Today Bestseller

    " Though the book's end hints at some very interesting mysteries for the Baudelaire children, this book was the least interesting of all of them. It is still a very good read and I look forward to continuing the series. "

    " Very good and touching. One of the best books along with the wide window, the vile village and the end. Definaltey going to be read again by myself and my friends. "

    " Way better than the last book!! There was actually a lot of action in this one, rather than some of the other ones...... But there was also a lot of detail that Lemony Snicket put into this book. "
