“The Grim Grotto” by Lemony Snicket

Back of the Book:

Dear Reader,

Unless you are a slug, a sea anemone, or mildew, you probably prefer not to be damp. You might also prefer not to read this book, in which the Baudelaire siblings encounter an unpleasant amount of dampness as they descend into the depths of despair, underwater.

In fact, the horrors they encounter are too numerous to list, and you wouldn’t want me even to mention the worst of it, which includes mushrooms, a desperate search for something lost, a mechanical monster, a distressing message from a lost friend, and tap dancing.

As a dedicated author who has pledged to keep recording the depressing story of the Baudelaires, I must continue to delve deep into the cavernous depths of the orphans’ lives. You, on the other hand, may delve into some happier book in order to keep your eyes and your spirits from being dampened.

With all due respect,
Lemony Snicket

Jamieson’s Review on Goodreads.com:

The Baudelaire siblings don’t know what is so important about the sugar bowl, only that it may mean the end of their troubles.Unsure how to get out of the Stricken Stream without drowning, the three siblings contemplate their fate. Violet, the oldest of the Baudelaires, is the best inventor the world has ever seen; even she can’t figure a way out of the mess they are in. Klaus, the second oldest, is as befuddled as his sister.

The very worst thing about this book is- A sugar bowl? Seriously?! What on Earth does a sugar bowl have to do with anything?! Ugh!

The very best thing about this book is Sunny being a hostage.
