The Slippery Slope
A Series of Unfortunate Events
Author: Lemony Snicket
Illustrator: Brett Helquist
Like bad smells, uninvited weekend guests, or very old eggs, there are some things that ought to be avoided.
Snicket’s saga about the charming, intelligent, and grossly unlucky Baudeliare orphans continues to alarm its distressed and suspicious fans the world over. The tenth book in this outrageous publishing effort features more than the usual dose of distressing details, such as snow gnats, an organized troupe of youngsters, an evil villain with a dastardly plan, a secret headquarters, and some dangerous antics you should not try at home. With the weather turning colder, this is one chilling book you would be better off without.
