Lemony Snicket Books
Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) made his mark with A Series of Unfortunate Events, a gothic series about the besieged Beaudelaire orphans, in which he's both the narrator and an adult character, working for a secret organization. He followed that with the noir-mystery-style All the Wrong Questions series, featuring the 12-year-old Snicket as an apprentice in that same secret organization, investigating suspicious goings on in the strange, fading town of Satin'd-by-the Sea. In between, he's published several fun picture books. Here's a list that includes the first three books in the Unfortunate Events series and all the other Snicket books we've reviewed.
