Dont be fooled by the new, Netflix-inspired book covers of the first four books in this New York Times bestselling series.
The events recounted in this four-book box set (which includes The Bad Beginning, The Reptile Room, The Wide Window, and The Miserable Mill) are sure to depress you. If you cannot stomach stories that find misfortune continuously befalling the three charming Baudelaire orphans, I recommend you make another reading selection. The terrible tale of the Baudelaires bad luck starts with The Bad Beginning, and it all gets worse from there.
Some boxes should never be opened.
