9780007141111: A Series of Unfortunate Events (3) ? Book the Third ? The Wide Window

Even more terrible happenings concerning the Baudelaire orphans.

Dear Customer,
If you have not heard anything about the Baudelaire orphans, then before you listen to even one sentence you should know this: Violet, Klaus and Sunny are kindhearted and quick-witted, but their lives, I’m sorry to say, are filled with bad luck and misery. All of the stories about these three children are unhappy and wretched, and this one may be the worst of them all.
If you haven’t got the stomach for a story that includes a hurricane, a signalling device, hungry leeches, cold cucumber soup, a horrible villain and a doll named Pretty Penny, then this tape will probably fill you with despair.
I will continue to record these tragic tales, for that is what I do. You, however, should decide for yourself whether you can possibly bear the responsibility of exposing others to this miserable story.
With all due respect,
Lemony Snicket

Review:

“Author Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) reads volumes three and four of his Series of Unfortunate Events saga. A snappy, techno tune by a group called the Gothic Archies serves as toe-tapping introduction to Handler's chipper performance of his humorously melodramatic tales.” Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover:

Dear Customer,
If you have picked up this sheet, you have probably not read the warning so clearly outlined in my prior message. This story may seem cheery at first, when the Baudelaire orphans spend time in the company of some interesting reptiles and a giddy uncle. But don’t be fooled.

The three siblings endure a car accident, a terrible odour, a deadly serpent, a long knife, a large brass reading lamp and the reappearance of a person they’d hoped never to see again.
I have made a solemn vow to present this information to the public, but there is nothing stopping you from tearing up this paper and pretending you’ve never heard of the tape. Then you can sell something that is less unpleasant.
With all due respect,
Lemony Snicket
