Back to the fiction – A series of unfortunate events

NEWS/BOOK REVIEW                                                                                                   (Staff, 7-9, 10-12)

Well, this is a new feature, or segment – Back to the fiction!

This is a segment which looks at books or series which many of you may have read, but might like to read again. A bit like finding your favourite thing in the back of the cupboard and going, ‘Oh yeah, I remember this, this is great!’

So, the first series to be featured is the well known and well loved

A series of unfortunate events by Lemony Snicket.

Have you read these? Seen the film? Honestly, these are so good. I’ll get you hooked with these two videos – the first is very clever, and summarises the twelve books in twelve seconds.

And here are the credits for the film – I love the artwork and music. Have a look.

Actually, the first book is now free online. Yes, you heard correctly, you can read it right here.

And this is what the author, Lemony Snicket, said about his book being free online:

“My book is free? Lock it up at once!”
