ALL THE WRONG QUESTIONS

WHO COULD THAT BE AT THIS HOUR?
[1 of 4]

Published 2012
In a fading town, far from anyone he knew or trusted, a young Lemony Snicket began his apprenticeship in an organization nobody knows about. He started by asking questions that shouldn't have been on his mind. Now he has written an account that should not be published, in four volumes that shouldn't be read, the first two chapters of which should not be included here but are.


WHEN DID YOU SEE HER LAST?
[2 of 4]

Published 2013
I should have asked the question "How could someone who was missing be in two places at once?" Instead, I asked the wrong question — four wrong questions, more or less. This is the account of the second.
In the fading town of Stain'd-by-the-Sea, young apprentice Lemony Snicket has a new case to solve when he and his chaperone are hired to find a missing girl. Is the girl a runaway? Or was she kidnapped? Was she seen last at the grocery store? Or could she have stopped at the diner? Is it really any of your business? These are All The Wrong Questions.


SHOULDN'T YOU BE IN SCHOOL?
[3 of 4]

Published 2014
Is Lemony Snicket a detective or a smoke detector?
Do you smell smoke? Young apprentice Lemony Snicket is investigating a case of arson but soon finds himself enveloped in the ever-increasing mystery that haunts the town of Stain'd-by-the-Sea. Who is setting the fires? What secrets are hidden in the Department of Education? Why are so many schoolchildren in danger? Is it all the work of the notorious villain Hangfire? How could you even ask that? What kind of education have you had?
Maybe you should be in school?


WHY IS THIS NIGHT DIFFERENT FROM ALL OTHER NIGHTS?
[4 of 4]

Published 2015
Train travel! Murder! Librarians! A Series Finale!
On all other nights, the train departs from Stain'd Station and travels to the city without stopping. But not tonight. You might ask, why is this night different from all other nights? But that's the wrong question. Instead ask, where is this all heading? And what happens at the end of the line? The final book in Lemony Snicket's bestselling series, All The Wrong Questions.


FILE UNDER: 13 SUSPICIOUS INCIDENTS
Published 2014
Paintings have been falling off of walls, a loud and loyal dog has gone missing, a specter has been seen walking the pier at midnight -- strange things are happening all over the town of Stain'd-By-The-Sea. Called upon to investigate thirteen suspicious incidents, young Lemony Snicket collects clues, questions witnesses, and cracks every case. Join the investigation and tackle the mysteries alongside Snicket, then turn to the back of the book to see the solution revealed.
Step into Lemony Snicket's world of deep mystery, mysterious depth, deductive reasoning, and reasonable deductions.

Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography
Published 2002
A Warning from the Publisher:

Many readers have questions about Lemony Snicket, author of the distressing serial concerning the trials of the charming but unlucky Baudelaire orphans, published under the collective title A Series of Unfortunate Events. Before purchasing, borrowing, or stealing this book, you should be aware that it contains the answers to some of those questions, such as the following:

1. Who is Lemony?

2. Is there a secret organization I should know about?

3. Why does Lemony Snicket spend his time researching and writing distressing books concerning the Baudelaire orphans?

4. Why do all of Lemony Snicket's books concerning a sad dedication to a woman named Beatrice?

5. If there's nothing out there, what was that noise?

Our advice to you is that you find a book that answers less upsetting questions than this one. Perhaps your librarian, bookseller, or parole officer can recommend a book that answers the question, “Aren't ponies adorable? ”


The Beatrice Letters
Published 2006
You shouldn't read other people's mail, especially when it is addressed to Lemony Snicket or someone named Beatrice.

The Beatrice Letters is an exquisite collection of personal correspondence that sheds light on the mysteries surrounding Lemony Snicket and A Series of Unfortunate Events. The Beatrice Letters contains evidence that should not be examined by anyone, including:
Unsettling photographs of suspicious objects
Hidden compartments containing disconcerting communications
A double-sided poster featuring confounding clues
Coded cut-out letters that reveal terrible secrets
