A new Lemony Snicket tale is coming!
All year long, we've been waitingbreathlesslyfor a brand new book in the Lemony Snicket series. Finally, our countdown is coming to an end. Just one more month until the arrival of the latest entry in the Series of Unfortunate Events!
Book the Eleventh: The Grim Grotto goes on sale nationally September 21.
That means all of you Lemony Snicket fans have only a few short weeks to make sure you're ready to dive into the latest story. The best preparation, of course, is to read the first 10 books in this wildly original, woeful and wonderfully entertaining series by Daniel Handler. Month by month, we've helped out by describing each of the books as part of our Lemony Snicket countdown. In this, the final tick of the Snicket clock, you'll learn about the three most recent entries, books eight, nine and ten.
In Book the Eighth: The Hostile Hospital, the three Baudelaire orphans take refuge in Heimlich Hospital after being unjustly accused of murder. Unfortunately, their evil pursuer, Count Olaf, soon checks in as well, determined to see that Violet Baudelaire is subjected to a cranioectomy. Only by being clever and fearless can the Baudelaires evade a dire fate.
Next we come to Book the Ninth: The Carnivorous Carnival (ISBN 0064410129), in which the children disguise themselves as circus freaks at the Caligari Carnival. (The youngest, poor little Sunny, poses as Chabo the Wolf Baby.) Madame Lulu, the fortuneteller at the carnival, might hold the secret of what really happened to the Baudelaires' parents.
Finally, in Book the Tenth: The Slippery Slope (ISBN 0064410137), Violet and Klaus have been separated from little Sunny somewhere in the Mortmain Mountains. Will they finally learn what the top-secret V.F.D. stands for? Will they locate one (or both) of their parents, who were supposedly killed when their house burned to the ground? We'll never reveal these Lemony Snicket secrets. Read the books and find out for yourselves!
