Before the Baudelaires became orphans, before he encountered A Series of Unfortunate Events, even before the invention of Netflix, Lemony Snicket was a boy discovering the mysteries of the world.

Is Lemony Snicket a detective or a smoke detector?
Do you smell smoke? Young apprentice Lemony Snicket is investigating a case of arson but soon finds himself enveloped in the ever-increasing mystery that haunts the town of Stain’d-by-the-Sea. Who is setting the fires? What secrets are hidden in the Department of Education? Why are so many schoolchildren in danger? Is it all the work of the notorious villain Hangfire? How could you even ask that? What kind of education have you had?
Maybe you should be in school?

  • "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."
