Review:

Anyone familiar with Lemony Snicket's horribly bleak, utterly appalling Series of Unfortunate Events will not be surprised that the 2004 edition of Lemony Snicket's Calendar of Unfortunate Events represents 13 months and not the usual 12. Each calendar month serves up some sort of Snicket-alia, whether it's an unpleasant (yet artfully composed) illustration of the three beleaguered Baudelaire orphans by Brett Helquist or a mysterious black-and-white photo of Snicket kneeling before Beatrice's grave. The days of the month are sometimes marked with special moments in history such as August 5, "Birthday of John Merrick, also known as 'Elephant Man,'" or January 21, "King Louis XVI of France executed via guillotine, a French term for losing one's head." Other days simply offer friendly warnings, such as "Catching snowflakes in one's mouth can lead to a cold tongue" or "An evening sail on a full moon, beneath an ocean or large lake, can be deadly." Snicket fans will revel in delicious oddity of this wall calendar whose snippet of advice for December 25 is "Beware of burglars entering the chimney." --Karin Snelson

About the Author:

Lemony Snicket grew up near the sea and currently lives beneath it. To his horror and dismay, he has no wife or children, only enemies, associates, and the occasional loyal manservant. His trial has been delayed, so he is free to continue researching and recording the tragic tales of the Baudelaire orphans for HarperCollins.
