Lemony Snicket was born before you were and is likely to die before you as well. He was born in a small town where the inhabitants were suspicious and prone to riot. He grew up near the sea and currently lives beneath it. Until recently, he was living somewhere else.
Brett Helquist was born in Ganado, Arizona, grew up in Orem, Utah, and now lives in New York City. He earned a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Brigham Young University and has been illustrating ever since. His art has appeared in many publications, including Cricket magazine and The New York Times.
My First Thoughts?
I must confess I had this post almost ready to publish for a couple of weeks, but weirdly Fridays seem to never go as planned! Yesterday, however, I thought ahead lol Not that I don’t usually, but I do have a new feature calendar for all to see, and that does help motivate me to keep planning ahead and scheduling posts, which is great!
This book has to be one of my all time favourites, as a fan of the series, and the books, The Complete History of Secret Organisations – just finished off A Series of Unfortunate Events – nicely!
It’s a really smart coffee table book, even for people who are not fans, because it is set out in an intriguing way, with heaps of colourful pictures, drawings, inside information about the stories, the character and behind the scenes. I. LOVE. IT. 🙂 And that is pretty much my review… lol
I can’t wait to visit your blogs to find out. Have a great weekend, may your books be with you!
Luv Sassy X

I’m currently reading a murder mystery set in Paris, Cara Black’s Murder in Bel-Air. It’s quite good. It’s the 19th in the series, and the first in the series, Death in the Marais, is excellent, as are all the others that follow.
That sounds like fun. It’s actually really nice to be able to get through a long series and enjoy them like you do too, Harvee!
It does sound like a great edition to the series. I was wondering if you had reached the end of the series. Such gorgeous books!
What a fun series and wonderful ending. My quotes from Behold the Dreamer
This does seem like it’d be a fascinating read! I love that picture of the “Table of Discontents”. So colorful! Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂
Sounds like a fun read!
Sounds pretty neat, if you have read the series. 🙂 Happy weekend!
Yessssssssss!! It’s a beauty!! Hope your weekend was fabulous! x
It’s amazing that you’ve delved so deeply into this series. Of course, it is such an original and creative one it deserves it. Thanks for taking us along on the ride.
What a fun and informative looking book. After watching the series, there is no doubt they must have had a lot of fun making it. Happy Friday!
Ah you’ve reached the end. Have you decided what to read next?
Congratulations on finishing all the books! It sounds like you’ve enjoyed the series 😊
