Grade 4-7-Tim Curry (The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Pirates of Penzance) has the perfect, mysterious voice for this reading of Lemony Snicket's book (HarperCollins, 2002). The plot, as in the other eight titles in the series, centers around the three orphaned Baudelaire children and their avoidance of Count Olaf, who is presumably trying to obtain their deceased parents' fortune. The children find their woeful refuge in a carnival, becoming more involved than any of them had planned. Madame Lulu's House of Freaks welcomes the children as a two-headed freak (Violet and Klaus) and Chabo, the Wolf Baby (Sunny). Will the orphans finally find out the secret meaning of the initials VFD? Will they discover something about their parents and the fire that made them orphans? The Carniverous Carnival takes listeners one step closer to solving the series' mysteries. Tim Curry's sinister renditions of Snicket's plottings will delight, but this title will be more thoroughly enjoyed by those who have experienced the other eight episodes. Don't hesitate to purchase this if Lemony Snicket is popular in any form with your patrons.
