Lemony Snicket has crept into the souls of millions of children around the world with his Series of Unfortunate Events.

Lemony Snicket - AKA Daniel Handler

Lemony Snicket is the name that author Daniel Handler took on to write his Series of Unfortunate Events. Daniel often appears at press junkets as Lemony Snicket's handler or as Lemony Snicket himself, so it gets kind of confusing where Daniel's personality ends and Lemony's begins...

Lemony Snicket - Struggle to the Top

Before Daniel took on his Lemony Snicket pseudonym he was writing books under his given name. You might think that someone as talented as Lemony Snicket would never have trouble getting his work published, but before the Series of Unfortunate Events came along, Daniel Handler's first novel was rejected 37 times by publishers! Many thought that his material was "too dark" for teens.

Lemony Snicket - A Series of Unfortunate Events

Back in 1999, a tale too frightening was unleashed on the world. The Bad Beginning was the first of thirteen books published in the Series of Unfortunate events, with The End being released on Friday the 13th. For those of you who have yet to have the displeasure of reading these books, the series centers around three orphans, Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire, who are dealt tragedy after tragedy. Despite their miserable existence, the orphans keep on trucking to The End. The first three books, (The Bad Beginning, The Reptile Room and The Wide Window) were made into a feature film in December 2004.

O my lord i like i dont even know how but this summer my grandma got a new printer and one day i was printing an essay on Albert Einstein and the paper got jammed. So i reached my hand in but i didnt know that the printer automatically pulls the paper back in so i got my hand stuck in the printer. I was crying and it was horrible. And then like (((((POOF)))) my crush, Jordan Barchett, just appears at the door and he comes in and sees me. The look on his face was so funny that i forgot my hand was in the printer. Finally my adopted father Cane Plemmar got me out and i now have the word "intelligence" tattooed on my hand. Ironic....lol
