Gr 4-7-This third episode in the series by Lemony Snicket (HarperCollins, 2000) finds the Baudelaire orphans Violet, Klaus, and Sunny going off to live with widowed Aunt Josephine. A very nervous lady, she is afraid of almost everything, including the stove, the telephone, and doorknobs. Her great passion in life is English grammar. In fact, she has a library filled with just grammar books. Unfortunately for the orphans, Aunt Josephine's house is perched precariously on a cliff that overlooks Lake Lachrymose, a lake filled with deadly leeches. In addition, Hurricane Herman is headed toward them. But, most unfortunate for the orphans, Count Olaf, in the guise of Captain Sham, has found them and gained the trust of Aunt Josephine. Once again, it is up to the orphans to use their wiles in order to stay out of his evil clutches. The Wide Window is read by the author. Although Snicket doesn't differentiate much between the voices of the characters, he does a fine job of bringing his story to gloomy life. The only detraction to the reading is the slightly jarring music at the beginnings of the tapes. Otherwise, this is a good addition to collections where A Series of Unfortunate Events is popular.-Veronica Schwartz, Des Plaines Public Library, IL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Author Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) reads volumes three and four of his Series of Unfortunate Events saga. A snappy, techno tune by a group called the Gothic Archies serves as toe-tapping introduction to Handler's chipper performance of his humorously melodramatic tales. The first two audiobooks in the series, performed by British actor Tim Curry, were released by Listening Library in March. (May) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
