Everybody loves a carnival! Who can fail to delight in the colourful people, the unworldly spectacle, the fabulous freaks?

A carnival is a place for good family fun - as long as one has a family, that is. For the Baudelaire orphans, their time at the carnival turns out to be yet another episode in a now unbearable series of unfortunate events. In fact, in this appalling ninth instalment in Lemony Snicket′s serial, the siblings must confront a terrible lie, a caravan, and Chabo the wolf baby. With millions of readers worldwide, and the Baudelaire′s fate turning from unpleasant to unseemly, it is clear that Lemony Snicket has taken nearly all the fun out of children′s books.

Ages 10+

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It Could Be Better This book is OK, but it's not as good as the other books in the series. I kind of liked the Unauthorized Biography more than the Carnivorous Carnival. I expcted more. I don't know why.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Most Deliciously Dangerous Yet! Mr. Snicket has uncovered yet another frought and upsetting episode in the lives of Violet, Klaus and Sunny. If you've been biting your nails and pulling your hair out since the last installment, you won't be disappointed -- this is quite possibly the best yet! Further clues regarding VFD are revealed and yet the truth continues to allude us. The cliffhanger is almost unbearable, but there's lots to think about until Book the Tenth. Curse you Count Olaf, wherever you are!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Book Ever The S.O.U.E books are fabulous,I absolutley love them. I always know when each and every book is released (And my mom doesn't know why) and I'm always right. They expand my vocabulary,and they also expand my mom's as well. I also think they're better than Harry Potter books, because those kinds of books don't teach kids anything, except about witchcraft. So these books are really appropriate for kids my age(12).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A series of unfortunate events and excellence Lemony Snicket's excellent depiction of the trials of the Baudelaire orphans is marvelous. Detailed, yet humourous, meticulous, but not boring, the story opens up relatively quickly and proceeds to a tangled storyline, which is filled with dramatic, humourous, and cliff-hanging moments that leave the reader on the edge of his seat. It is a style of writing I honestly have never seen before, because it leaves mysteries such as the Baudelaire mansion tunnel, the Quagmire events, and the tale of some alleged Beatrice, who oddly seems to weave its way into the storyline. Lemony Snicket himself is, or seems to be, included in the storyline in one point or another, hence the reference to Jacques Snicket. All in all, it is a great series, and I hope it continues for books on end. A magnificent tale, for and child and adult alike.
