Review:

"There's no stopping Snicket!"-- "Booklist"

"There's no stopping Snicket!" ""Booklist""

Praise for All the Wrong Questions: "A Pink Panther-esque page turner...exceptionally literary and entirely singular. Characterized by linguistic playfulness and an appreciation for the archaic, "Who Could That Be at This Hour?" is frequently laugh-out-loud hilarious...illustrations by celebrated cartoonist Seth only add to the throwback gumshoe vibe of this outrageous, long-overdue, middle-grade follow-up series from a truly beloved narrator." ""Los Angeles Times"""

"There's no stopping Snicket!" ""Booklist"""

"This series carries the same sarcastic charm of the "Unfortunate Events" books and will have young readers chuckling out loud...Fans of Snicket's previous outings will devour the latest entry."--School Library Journal

"Appealingly quirky descriptions and Snicket's compulsive definitions contribute humor, and savvy readers will enjoy puzzling out references to classic works of fiction."--VOYA

"Linguistic play and literary allusions abound in this smart, slyly humorous noir thriller. Fans will be over the moon, a phrase that here means exceedingly pleased."--Kirkus Reviews

Praise for All the Wrong Questions: "A Pink Panther-esque page turner...exceptionally literary and entirely singular. Characterized by linguistic playfulness and an appreciation for the archaic, "Who Could That Be at This Hour?" is frequently laugh-out-loud hilarious...illustrations by celebrated cartoonist Seth only add to the throwback gumshoe vibe of this outrageous, long-overdue, middle-grade follow-up series from a truly beloved narrator."--Los Angeles Times

"Demands to be read twice: once for the laughs and the second time for the clues."--The Boston Globe

"The sort of goodie savored by brainy kids who love wordplay, puzzles and plots that zing from point A to B by way of the whole alphabet."--The Washington Post
