Tim Curry as narrator makes this a superb audiobook. The wonderful thing about Lemony Snicket is the multisyllabic words which he then explains for youthful readers. An example: “in complete pandemonium, which here means actors and stagehands running around attending to details.” He also does this with unusual phrases: “They were of two minds, which here means….” This is a great book to enlarge kids’ vocabularies.
The interview with the author at the end is also hilarious. He provides his view about the marvelous words that he tosses into his books.
