After the sudden death of their parents in The Bad Beginning (Bk. 1), the three Baudelaire children must depend on each other and their wits when it turns out that the distant relative who is appointed their guardian is determined to use any means necessary to get their fortune.
Then in The Reptile Room (Bk. 2), after narrowly escaping the menacing clutches of the dastardly Count Olaf, the three Baudelaire orphans are taken in by a kindly herpetologist with whom they live happily for an all-too-brief time.
In The Wide Window (Bk. 3), the children endure a hurricane, cold cucumber soup, a leaky sailboat, an allergic reaction, a pile of tin cans, and a doll named Pretty Penny. Catastrophes and misfortune continue to plague the Baudelaire orphans after they're sent to live with fearful Aunt Josephine who offers little protection against Count Olaf's treachery.
Never before has a tale of three likable and unfortunate children been quite so enchanting, or quite so uproariously unhappy.
