Miserable Mill

A Series of Unfortunate Events


Author: Lemony Snicket

Illustrator: Brett Helquist

The worst book of the season!
As Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire look out the grimy window of the train taking them to The Lucky Smells Lumber Mill to live, they can’t help but wonder what lies ahead. Will misfortune lurk behind every log? Though these children are clever, resilient, and good-looking, everything that could possibly go wrong for them, unfortunately, usually does. In this forth book in A Series of Unfortunate Events, I’m sorry to say, the children will encounter a giant pincher machine, a bad casserole, a man with a cloud of smoke where his head should be, a hypnotist, a ghastly accident, and coupons.

From the tradition of classic tales for children, where terrible things always seem to befall orphans, comes this exquisitely dark comedy that is both literary and irreverent, hilarious and deftly crafted. This latest installment in Lemony Snicket’s uproariously unhappy series may just be the worst yet.
