Full Text Reviews:

Booklist - 08/01/2001 Book the Seventh in A Series of Unfortunate Events pokes wicked fun at the saying It takes a village to raise a child and at aphorisms in general: The quoting of an aphorism, like the angry barking or a dog or the smell of overcooked broccoli, rarely indicates that something helpful is about to happen. Sure enough, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are soon adopted by an entire town whose inhabitants look upon the orphans as free labor. The Baudelaires struggle to solve the riddling messages that could lead them to rescue the Quagmire triplets, while trying to avoid being burned at the stake. Series fans will enjoy the quick pace, entertaining authorial asides, and over-the-top characterizations, and Brett Helquist's droll pencil drawings will add to their reading pleasure. - Copyright 2001 Booklist.
