9780060518288: The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book 1)

Imagine tales so terrible that as many as fifty million innocents have been ruined by them – tales so indelibly horrid that the New York Times bestseller list has been unable to rid itself of them for seven years. Now imagine if this scourge suddenly became available in a shameful new edition so sensational, so irresistible, so riddled with lurid new pictures that even a common urchin would wish for it. Who among us would be safe?

Begin at the beginning – evenif it is a bad one – with the first in A Series of Unfortunate Events, now even more disposable in paperback!

About the Author:

Lemony Snicket is often despondent, mostly about his published research, which includes A Series of Unfortunate Events and The Composer Is Dead.



Brett Helquist's celebrated art has graced books from the charming Roger, The Jolly Pirate, to the alarming New York Times bestselling A Series of Unfortunate Events, to the cozy E. B. White Read-Aloud Award finalist bedtime for bear. He lives with his family in Brooklyn, New York.

Book Description HarperCollins, 2003. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Dear Reader, "Rare" is a word which can mean either "not burnt to a crisp, and likely to make you ill" or "slightly harder to find." I'm sad to say that this rare edition of the bad beginning fits both of these definitions. In this alleged box, you will find the following: A woeful story entitled the bad beginning, featuring a disturbing new cover. An entire chapter of previously unpublished author's notes, which are arguably even more woeful than the tale itself. An alarming portrait of the heroes and villains of this tale, ready to display in a souvenir frame. You may prefer to display your own, less disturbing, 4" x 6" image. It is my sad duty to provide these miserable materials to the public, but you are free to look for something easier to find and less likely to upset your stomach. With all due respect, Lemony Snicket. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0060518286
