The Series of Unfortunate Events: Austere Academy
Publisher: Egmont Books
The unfortunate Baudelaire children have been enrolled into Prufrock Preparatory School under the safe keeping of Vice Principal Nero and his advanced computer, to keep them safe from the evil, scheming Count Olaf who wants to get his greedy claws into their family fortune.
Unfortunately for the Baudelaire children Vice Principal Nero is a terrible violin player who subjects his students to six-hour violin recitals every day, the world’s most boring lessons and makes the orphans sleep in a crab-infested, fungus-ridden shack. Also he has employed the suspiciously turbaned Coach Genghis, the new sports teacher – but is he really who he says he is ...?
Another hilarious instalment in the exploits of the unfortunate Baudelaire children, narrated with Snicket’s trademark deadpan style.
