A Series of Unfortunate Events Books in Order, by Lemony Snicket

Written by Daniel Handler under the pen name Lemony Snicket, A Series of Unfortunate Events follows the misadventures of the three Baudelaire orphans: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny. The story begins with the Baudelaire children’s parents perishing in a mysterious fire, leaving them orphaned. They are placed under the care of various guardians, but they are pursued by the villainous Count Olaf, who is determined to acquire the Baudelaire fortune for himself. Throughout the series, the orphans encounter a multitude of unfortunate events, from suspicious fires to deadly reptiles, and they uncover secrets about their parents and the shadowy organization V.F.D. that plays a role in their lives. The Baudelaires must use their individual skills—Violet’s inventiveness, Klaus’s intelligence, and Sunny’s sharp teeth—to navigate a series of challenges and thwart Count Olaf’s schemes.
