Hi guys! Today we will be reviewing “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” by Lemony Snicket.
I give this series a five out of five-star rating because it has buckets full of adventure and excitement, and the way the book was written is just so good that it makes you want to keep reading. This book is very good for kids in grade four and up because it can help you expand your vocabulary. Lemony Snicket (Also known as Daniel Handler) always uses confusing phrases and words and tells you what they mean after the phrase or word appears.
This book series is about three children named Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire. They live in a mansion with their mother and father, until one day when they go to the beach and a friend of their parents brings dreadful news. He tells them, ‘Your parents have perished in a fire that destroyed your whole house.’ This is the first of the unfortunate events that start to happen.
Let me tell you a bit about the three main characters. Violet the eldest, is good at making inventions and invents lots of things in all the books to help the three siblings. Klaus the only boy and middle child, loves to read and remembers everything he’s ever read. Last but not least is Sunny, an infant, who has an interest in biting things and in the future likes to cook things. I think the characters make the story exciting.
One thing to note some people may not like this book because it does have depressing parts but is mostly a suspenseful mystery.
THE FINAL WORD: This book has the Morgan seal of approval and I hope you enjoy reading it! Signed , Morgan.
