When my workday is over, and I have closed my notebook, hidden my pen, and sawed holes in my rented canoe so that it cannot be found, I often like to spend the evening in conversation with my few surviving friends. Read the first page

I am a huge lemony snicket fan. if u are u probably have alrady got this book. but even if you aren't you should still buy the book. lemony snicket makes it so good you can hardly put it down. it is much different from the rest of the books in the series. But theyre really good alredy. Also for the LS fans who ars dying for the 10th,thats called the slppery slope. also, expect to see a movie on the first book in 2003. the book is full of twists and turns. and,alexander, if you read this, I'll expect you to read the whole other 8 books first. in summmary, buy this book if you know whats good for you(and the other 8 as well).

These books were the best books I've ever read!!! They always keep you guessing about what will happen next. These books are not like any other books. Instead of always being happy and fake the books are more like really life--except worse. I have read from 1-8 and they are all very good. These books are all like a big mystery. You should definetaly read them.
P.S.---if i could i would give it 100 stars!!

The Carnivorous Carnival is definently one of the best Lemony Snicket books i have ever read. This time the kids hitch a ride in the back off Count Olafs car to the Hinterlands. I the story the kids desquise themselves from him as freaks. Sunny dresses up as a wolf baby and Violet and Klaus dress as a two headed person. throughout the story the kids end up finding out something they really want to know but dont find out if it is 100% true. the end of this story is the most sad of them all. so i think that yu should read the book to find out what turns out to happen in the end.

I really love the Series of Unfortunate Events. This one is one of my favorites of the series along with the Wide Window (3), The Austere Academy (5), and the Hostile Hospital (8).
These books are very good. I was very suprised by many things in this book.
Read them!

In A Series of Unfortunate Events, The Carnivorous Carnival, the Baudelaire children must find the meaning of V.F.D. and see if one of their parents is still alive. At first, the Baudelaire children must disguise themselves in order to blend in. They disguise themselves as a two-headed person and a wolf baby.
In the carnivorous carnival, Count Olaf and his gang ask Madam Lulu (the fortune-teller) to tell them where the Baudelaires are and more. To get Madam Lulu to tell them more, Count Olaf has to bribe her by buying lions for her to use in the show. While the Baudelaires are at the carnival, Violet and Klaus are the two-headed freak (Beverly and Elliot) and Sunny is the Wolf baby (Chabo). While they are there they meet the other freaks named Kevin (ambidextrous), Hugo (hunchback), and Colette contortionist). Also, Count Olaf has decided that each time the crowds came, they would take out a piece of paper to decide who would be thrown into the lion pit. To find out who will be thrown into the pit, you'll have to read this exciting book.

Period 1
The Baudelaire orphans went to a carnival with Count Olaf in the back of his car and were dressed up as freaks. They wanted to find out if one of their parents are still alive and this lady who can find answers to any questions just by looking into her cyrstal ball. However, they find out that the lady is part of the V.F.D. and the Baudelaires and she are planning for a escape. They also found out that the crystal ball is not magical and that she uses resources from libraries and newspapers to find the answers to the questions that people ask. At the end, the lady dies, Count Olaf takes Sunny away, throws Violet and Klaus into the mountains.
I like this book because it starts another story at the end of the book. It makes you want to go straight to the next book and find out what happens. This way it makes the stories more exciting.
I don't like this book because in every plot, if something good can happen, it always turns out bad-that's why it's called A Series of Unfortunate Events. You just want something good to happen and let the story end with a "happily ever after" but it never does.
My favorite part of the book was when the Baudelaire find out that the lady with the crystal ball was a good person and that she was part of V.F.D, Madame Lulu. The Baudelaires could finally find out what V.F.D. stands for and where the headquarters is.
My least favorite part of the book was when Madame Lulu gets killed and could not tell the Baudelaires the secrets of V.F.D. It could have turned out to be a happy ending but just because of that, it couldn't.
