9780007141128: A Series of Unfortunate Events (4) - Book the Fourth - The Miserable Mill

Could life for the Baudelaire orphans possibly get any worse? In a word, yes.

Dear Customer,
I hope, for your sake, that you have not chosen to listen to this tape because you are in the mood for a pleasant experience. If this is the case, I advise you to put it down instantaneously, because of all the volumes describing the unhappy lives of the Baudelaire orphans, this might be the unhappiest yet. Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire are sent to Paltryville to work in a lumbermill, and they find disaster and misfortune lurking behind every log.
These include, I’m sorry to inform you, such unpleasantries as a giant pincher machine, a bad casserole, a man with a cloud of smoke where his head should be, a hypnotist, a terrible accident resulting in injury, and coupons.
I have promised to record the entire history of these three poor children, but you haven’t, so if your customers prefer stories that are more heartwarming, please feel free to make another selection.
With all due respect,
Lemony Snicket

Review:

“Another plum for the orphans' fans. “ Booklist

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
