June Book of the Month!

After a Bad Beginning things can only end up worse for the Baudelaire orphans! The second installment of Lemony Snicket’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events: The Reptile Room: Or, Murder!, sends siblings Klaus, Sunny & Violet to take their chances with their mysterious so called “uncle” Dr. Montgomery. It’s only after you find out that Uncle Monty is indeed the fun loving, coconut cream cake making, and lover of snakes that you start to wonder where this event will come unfortunate. The dastardly Count Olaf snakes his way into the Baudelaire’s lives once more, taking away yet another chance for the orphans to find true happiness in the world.

Despite being arguable the most depressing and saddest of the series, Reptile Room offers suspense, sly humor, whimsical non sequiturs and most of all a story that hooks readers in not unlike the hook-handed man would attempt to do. Snicket doesn’t take a single step back from showing you just how utterly miserable the life of the Baudelaire orphans can get! After escaping from the horrors within the Reptile Room, you’ll be looking forwards to the Wide Window and the next some what great but always unfortunate adventure.
