About this title

Synopsis:

Time spent by the sea can be refreshing and rejuvenating, and may be just the thing the Baudelaire orphans need after their exhausting mountain adventure.

Violet, who likes to invent things, would surely find interesting contraptions to explore in a sea-bound vessel such as a submarine. Klaus, an avid reader, would certainly be interested in doing some research into the peculiar habits of certain mushrooms. And Sunny, who loves to bite things and is learning to cook, may enjoy the surprising food that comes from the sea.

Regardless of all the wonders the world of water has to offer, the Baudelaire siblings should hone their skills while ocean bound, just in case this journey turns out to be the most dreadful yet in a series of unfortunate events.

Review:

It's tough when the things that stand between you and your desired sugar bowl are a host of deadly mushrooms and an uncomfortable diving suit. The unlucky Baudelaire orphans find themselves in deep (once again) in this eleventh book in Lemony Snicket's odd-and-full-of-woe-but-quite-funny Series of Unfortunate Events. In The Grim Grotto, the siblings find themselves headed down Stricken Stream on a broken toboggan when they are spotted by the submarine Queequeg, carrying Captain Widdershins, his somewhat volatile stepdaughter Fiona, and optimistic Phil from Lucky Smells Lumbermill. The adventures that follow as the crew tries to get to the aforementioned sugar bowl before Count Olaf are so horrible that the narrator inserts factual information about the water cycle so that readers will get bored and stop reading the book. It doesn't work. As per usual, readers will want to soak up every awf! ul detail and follow the Baudelaires all the way back to the place we first met them--Briny Beach. (Ages 9 and older) --Karin Snelson
