HarperCollins Canada presents the first of four volumes in a new series from one of the world's most mysterious literary figures, Mr. Lemony Snicket.

Drawing on events that took place during a period of his youth spent in a fading town, far from anyone he knew or trusted, Snicket chronicles his experiences as an apprentice in an organization nobody knows about. While there, he began to ask a series of questions-wrong questions that should not have been on his mind. Who Could That Be at This Hour? is Snicket's account of the first wrong question.

Mr. Snicket's first authorized autobiographical account of his childhood, the series features illustrations throughout by critically acclaimed Canadian artist Seth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Acquired Taste Lemony Snicket's writing is, clearly, not for everyone, and only after reading an entire series plus a handful of other works by him can I honestly say I'm a fan of his work. It takes time to adjust to his writing style, but once you have, you can appreciate the humor and wit in his voice and become engrossed in the story he weaves through trickery and unforeseen plot twists. This series is no exception, and is a prime example of Snicket's witty, mysterious work that will ensnare its readers hook, line, and sinker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Witty This was my first Lemony Snickett book. My son started reading it and was very confused, so it became our bedtime reading book. It hooked us and we are currently on the last book of the series. At times it is laugh out loud funny. It is refreshing to read something different for a change.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lackluster A disappointment after his previous series. The plot was barely there, the characters are barely likable, and the only redeeming quality is the possibility of world building in the next book, which I won't be picking up.

""Those who enjoy a little poison in their porridge will find it wicked good fun."" —Kirkus

Praise for Why We Broke Up:

""Handler's genius is to make us hear those minor-key notes as if they were playing on our first-and last-dates, too."" —Booklist (Starred Review)
