Full Text Reviews:

Booklist - 10/15/2001 The Baudelaire orphans squeak through another darkly amusing, nightmarish adventure in the eighth of the projected 13 volumes of A Series of Unfortunate Events. In this episode, the children try to learn more about their situation, their parents, and the mysterious Jacques Snicket while being pursued by Count Olaf and his nefarious cohorts, who topple file cabinets to flatten the kids, threaten to cut off anesthetized Violet’s head, and trap the children in a burning building. Though the children escape, they are last seen in the trunk of Count Olaf’s car, hurtling toward whatever destiny awaits in volume nine. Narrator Snicket is in fine form here, telling the siblings’ story while dropping hints about his own dark past and offering entertaining asides, miscellaneous information, and at least one admirable pun. Perfectly capturing the atmosphere of the stories, Helquist’s stylized pencil sketches are among his best yet. - Copyright 2001 Booklist.
