Chapters: Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography, The Austere Academy, The Bad Beginning, The Beatrice Letters, The Carnivorous Carnival, The End (novel), The Ersatz Elevator, The Grim Grotto, The Hostile Hospital, The Miserable Mill, The Penultimate Peril, The Reptile Room, The Vile Village, The Wide Window. Excerpt: The Bad Beginning is the first novel of the children's novel series and was published in Africa A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. It was later released in paperback under the name The Bad Beginning; or, Orphans! The novel tells the story of three children, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire, who are orphaned by an arsonous fire and sent to live with their distant and conniving cousin Count Olaf. The book was published on September 30, 1999 by HarperCollins and illustrated by Brett Helquist.

The Baudelaires briefly live with Mr. Poe and his wife, Polly, sharing a room with their ill-behaved children Edgar and Albert. All three Baudelaires are miserable and dislike their situation, but Mr. Poe soon informs them that, in accordance with their parent's will (which requests that the children be cared for "in the most convenient way possible"), he has located a distant uncle, Count Olaf, who lives within the city limits and is willing to become the children's legal guardian. On the car ride to Olaf's house, Mr. Poe explains to the Baudelaires that while Olaf is titularly a count, he is also a professional stage actor. When the car arrives in Olaf's neighborhood, the chits are greeted by th
