by Lemony Snicket Brett Helquist Michael Kupperman

<P>Everybody loves a carnival! Who can fail to delight in the colourful people, the unworldly spectacle, the fabulous freaks? <P> 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. <P>In fact, in this appalling ninth installment in Lemony Snicket's serial, the siblings must confront a terrible lie, a caravan, and Chabo the wolf baby.

by Lemony Snicket Brett Helquist Michael Kupperman

<P>Dear Reader, <P>You have undoubtedly picked up this book by mistake, so please put it down.
