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
