9780007174348: A Series of Unfortunate Events - Lemony Snicket Gift Pack: 7-9:

A slipcase containing the CD editions of Books 7 – 9 in the Series of Unfortunate Events.

You have undoubtedly picked up information about this CD slipcase by mistake, so please put it down! Nobody in their right mind would listen to these three particular stories about the lives of Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire on purpose.

In The Vile Village the orphans are faced with some very unpleasant matters during their stay in the village of V.F.D. Can you really enjoy stories of migrating crows, an angry mob, a newspaper headline, the arrest of innocent people, the Deluxe Cell, and some very strange hats?

The Hostile Hospital describes every last detail of the Baudelaire children’s miserable stay at Heimlich Hospital which makes it one of the most dreadful audios in the world. Who wants to hear of such burdensome details as a suspicious shop-keeper, unnecessary surgery, an intercom system, anesthesia, heart-shaped balloons, and some very startling news about a fire. I’m sure you do not want to hear about such things!

The Carnivourous Carnival contains such a distressing story that consuming any of its contents would be far more stomach-turning than even the most imbalanced meal. Dare I mention any of the unnerving ingredients of this story – a confusing map, an ambidextrous person, an unruly crowd, a wooden plank, and Chabo the Wolf Baby!

It is our solemn and sacred occupation to research and publish each detail of the Baudelaire children’s displeasing and disenchanting lives and record them all, but you may prefer to fill your time with some other solemn and sacred thing, such as stocking another set of CDs instead!

“Is there a gleam of hope for the orphans and their new friends? Most certainly not. The only thing we can really count on are more gloriously gloomy adventures.” Karin Snelson, Amazon.com

From the Back Cover:

I hope that you have not chosen these CDs because you think they will provide the public with a pleasant listening experience. If this is the case, you are much mistaken and I advise you to change you mind immediately.

Off all the stories describing the unhappy lives of the Baudelaire orphans, The Miserable Mill might be the unhappiest yet. Violet, Klaus and Sunny are sent to Paltryville to work in a lumbermill, where they find disaster and misfortune lurking behind every log, in the form of a giant pincher machine, a man with a cloud of smoke where his head should be, a hypnotist and a terrible accident resulting in injury.

The Austere Academy is not a story about cheerful youngsters spending a jolly time at boarding school. Violet, Klaus and Sunny are intelligent and resourceful children, and you might expect that they would do very well at school. Don’t. For the Baudelaires, school turns out to be another miserable episode in their unlucky lives, as they face snapping crabs, strict punishments, dripping fungus, comprehensive exams, violin recitals, and the metric system.

Within the chapters of The Ersatz Elevator, the Baudelaire orphans encounter a darkened staircase, a red herring, three mysterious initials, a liar with an evil scheme, a secret passageway and parsley soda! In short nothing but misery, despair and discomfort.

It is our duty to stay to produce these CDs recording the history of the three hapless young orphans, so the general public will know each terrible thing that has happened to them, but you may be more comfortable getting a good night’s sleep. In that case, you should probably choose some other CD to save yourself from a heapful of horror and woe.
