What to Read After... Mr Gum 19/08/19
Who Could that be at This Hour? All the Wrong Questions
If Lemony Snickett had actually drunk his tea in the Hemlock Tearoom and Stationery Shop, he would never had ended up in a scratched green roadster with S. Theodora Markson, heading for Stain’d-by-the-Sea.
Neither would he have fallen into the wrong tree, walked into the wrong basement or asked so many wrong questions. And he might have solved the mystery of the shiny, black wooden statue of the Bombinating Beast even more quickly. Or maybe he wouldn't...
The first in a quartet of volumes of Lemony Snickett’s highly unlikely account of his childhood and apprenticeship to a top secret organisation is also the first Snickett series since A Series of Unfortunate Events. An eccentric, inventive and wildly improbable read, it is certain to entertain young readers.
