“The Slippery Slope” by Lemony Snicket

Back of the Book:

Like bad smells, uninvited weekend guests or very old eggs, there are some things that ought to be avoided.

Snicket’s saga about the charming, intelligent, and grossly unlucky Baudelaire orphans continues to alarm its distressed and suspicious fans the world over. The 10th book in this outrageous publishing effort features more than the usual dose of distressing details, such as snow gnats, an organised troupe of youngsters, an evil villain with a dastardly plan, a secret headquarters and some dangerous antics you should not try at home. With the weather turning colder, this is one chilling book you would be better off without.

Marjorie’s Review on

Book 9 recaptured my interest it sees the children were given a moral dilemma at the end, which makes the book meatier. I have never believed that children are unable to feel or understand difficult ideas or situations but rather that they process them in a different way to adults. (read the entire review here)
