This is the first in a series of books that follow some “unfortunate” children along with their sad story.  It was written by Lemony Snicket which is the pen name for Daniel Handler.  The books are very popular and well read with young readers.  So much so that even though there was a movie release in 2004 for these books there is another slated for 2017.  For my part, it was not a bad book, but a little too juvenile for me.  I think my 8 years old might like them, but they are very sad.  So, I have not yet recommended them to her.  There are other more inspiring stories for that age set.
