The Vile Village
A Series of Unfortunate Events
Author: Lemony Snicket
Illustrator: Brett Helquist
The next atrocious installment of the New York Times best-selling series
Sadly, Lemony Snicket continues to research the increasingly distressing plight of the unfortunate Baudelaire orphans, and offers up another awful episode of their terrible lives. In this seventh book in A Series of Unfortunate Events, the unlucky siblings are residents of an unnerving village, where they encounter a flock of crows, a strict council, a prison break, a censored library, a harpoon gun, and a hot-air balloon.
The wretched adventures of the charming Baudelaires are an exquisitely dark comedy, both literary and irreverent, hilarious and deftly crafted. The multi-talented Lemony Snicket spins yet another uproariously unhappy tale about three captivating and resilient orphans facing yet another bout of outrageous misfortune.
