About The Book
There is nothing to be found in Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events but misery and despair. You still have time to choose another international best-selling series to read. But if you insist on discovering the unpleasant adventures of the Baudelaire orphans, then proceed with caution…
Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are intelligent children. They are charming, and resourceful, and have pleasant facial features. Unfortunately, they are exceptionally unlucky.
In The Reptile Room the siblings endure a car accident, a terrible smell, a deadly serpent, a long knife, a brass reading lamp, and the re-appearance of a person they’d hoped never to see again.
In the tradition of great storytellers, from Dickens to Dahl, comes an exquisitely dark comedy that is both literary and irreverent, hilarious and deftly crafted.

About the Author
Daniel Handler, writing under the pen name Lemony Snicket, is the New York Times award winning author of the immensely popular young readers’ series, A Series of Unfortunate Events. Since the release of the first title in the series in 1999, more than 60 million copies of the thirteen volume series have been sold.
While researching his first book, The Basic Eight, Handler realized that if he was to receive the sort of “edgy” material that he needed, he would need to operate under a pseudonym. Lemony Snicket’s similarity to Jiminy Cricket was no accident; Snicket is the antithesis of the legendary moralistic wise narrator, a character trait that Handler reveals he despises.
Snicket is the narrator throughout the series, hence the reason the works are published under Snicket’s name rather than Handler’s.
