Summary
"If you are interested in stories with happy endings, you would be better off watching some other movie, " warns our narrator, Lemony Snicket. "In this movie, " he continues gravely, "not only is there no happy ending, there is no happy beginning and very few happy things in the middle." This is the story of the Baudelaire children -- three "clever and reasonably attractive orphans"--Who embark on a shaky adventure after their home burns down, killing their parents. Violet is the eldest, a serious-minded girl with a knack for inventing things. Klaus is a brainy book-lover who retains every word he's ever read. And Sunny, barely more than an infant, has the unique distinction of being very good at biting things -- sometimes right through things
