When the Baudelaire childrens parents perish in a house fire, thats just the beginning of a series of very unfortunate events. Read on for more on The Bad Beginning in this series of books by Lemony Snicket.

Author: Lemony Snicket

Having your parents perish in a house fire is enough grief to last anyone a lifetime. For the Baudelaire children, this Bad Beginning is just the first of A Series of Unfortunate Events.


The Baudelaire Children

Lemony Snicket's The Bad Beginning introduces the Baudelaire children, three wealthy kids who have their lives changed forever when their parents are killed in a house fire. From there, things don't get much better for Violet, an inventive 14 year-old, her younger book-obsessed brother, Klaus and their younger sister, Sunny, who likes to chew things. The three young orphans are sent to live with a distant relative, Count Olaf, a despicably dirty person who makes the children cook and clean for him, while he pounds booze with his completely untalented theater troup.


Disasterous Days

While the Baudelaires are busy doing chores for the Count, the Count is busy planning evil ways to get his hands on the Baudelaire's vast fortune. So how does everything turn out? Well, let's just say there are no smiles, group hugs or party balloons in this story. It's all bad, which is what makes The Bad Beginning and the rest of the tales in A Series of Unfortunate Events such a great read. Just when you think things might turn out okay for theBaudelaires, their lives collide with disaster - usually at the hands of Count Olaf.


The Grim Grotto

o=On December 17, 2004, A Series of Unfortunate Events hit theaters with Jim Carrey starring as the wicked Count Olaf, Meryl Streep as the grammar guru, Aunt Josephine, and Jude Law as Lemony Snicket, the narrator who also becomes a character. The movie was based on the first three books in the series, including The Bad Beginning, The Reptile Room, and The Wide Window.
