The Bad Beginning - Lemony Snicket The Baudelaire children enjoy a life of contentment and luxury. One sad day a fire consumes everything they hold dear, including their parents. This tragedy forces them to live with a distant relative who has no interest in them except their large inheritance. Using their wits the children do everything within their power to save one another from terrible situations. Despite the heavy content this was a delightful and quick read. There is plenty of danger, suspense and adventure, but not so much that the average tween reader will not be overly frightened.
