All the Wrong Questions: Who Could That Be at This Hour?

All you Lemony Snicket fans, great news! The latest book receives a good report from me. It’s all about Lemony getting trained as a V.F.D. Member. There three tons of wrong questions this book will answer such as: What is a Bombinating Beast?  Why is that boy throwing rocks at Lemony? Who is that behind you? Anyone wanting to know Lemony’s backstory, and anyone who doesn’t, needs to read this. Watch out for the second book!


Lemony Snicket, not yet a V.F.D. member, sneaks away from his current chaperones to join his mentor, who, incidentally  is ranked last on the list of mentors. He and his mentor are assigned a job, to find and return the statue of the Bombinating Beast. The lady who wants Lemony and S. Theodora Markson tells them that the Mallahans, an old family enemy stole it. But when Lemony talks to the Mallahans, it turns out the statue is rightfully theirs. The Mallahans don’t care about the statue, so they let Lemony steal it in the dead of night (Stupid S. Theodora Markson). Then the police arrive. (There are only 2 in town, are married, and have a son that they think is perfect but actually chucks rocks at people in his spare time.) Lemony drops of the wire he and S. Theodora Markson are using to get into the Mallahan household, and and lands in a tree. Then he meets Ellington Feint, who’s father has been kidnapped by a mysterious man named Hangfire. Lemony promises to help her. All right, I won’t reveal any more. You’ll have to read the book to find out what happens.

I like: S. Theodora Markson, Moxie, and the clever way Lemony communicates with his sister.

I don’t like: the confusing character of Ellington Feint.

    Yeh, I love the book also! I agree with Ellington Feint being a confusing character in the story. It’s cool how Lemony communicates with his sister, but I forgot to mention that in my review.

      Another confusing character is S. Theodora Markson. Who is that lady?

        Ooops, sorry for this SUPER late reply. Yeh, I thought that also. But apparently, she’s the lowest ranking chaperone. It’s very confusing but I got it after reading the book. Now I forgot. 😐 TBH, that’s my first book from Lemony Snicket that I have read. LOL, yup. I’m more of Cathy Cassidy books but I also like a bit of mystery also 😉

I bet you have something you want to say... Go ahead!
