The Truth Behind a Series of Unfortunate Events - Lois H Gresh

This is an interesting peek into the world of Lemony Snickett, as described in the the first ten books of the now completed series. Gresh writes in a similar style to Snickett, with a number of large words (usefully defined for the unfamiliar reader), a discussion about the probabilities of some creations (eg "is there such a thing as a Barbary Chewer Snake?", with a chapter about many things reptile) and about some of the more frightening scenarios described (eg could a fifty-year-old guardian marry his 14 year old ward against her consent?).
Enjoyable is you liked the series, and definitely aimed at Snickett's target market. - Alex
