Product description

Review

Praise for ""Who Could That Be at This Hour?"" "A Pink Panther-esque page turner...exceptionally literary and entirely singular. Characterized by linguistic playfulness and an appreciation for the archaic, "Who Could That Be at This Hour?" is frequently laugh-out-loud hilarious...illustrations by celebrated cartoonist Seth only add to the throwback gumshoe vibe of this outrageous, long-overdue, middle-grade follow-up series from a truly beloved narrator." ""Los Angeles Times"""

* "Will thrill fans of the author's earlier works and have even reluctant readers turning pages with the fervor of seasoned bookworms. A must-have." ""School Library Journal", starred review""

"Demands to be read twice: once for the laughs and the second time for the clues." ""The Boston Globe"""

*Literary allusions and witty wordplay abound as expected, with the added fun of getting to play detective."-- Kirkus

"The actual puzzles are dandy, and the format is ideal for the author's approach of comic avalanche."--The Horn Book

"Each mini mystery--just a few pages long--is chock full of wordplay, clever dialogue, noir references, and red herrings....By the end, not all mysteries are solved, nor all questions answered; whodunit aficionados will want to revisit again and again."--School Library Journal

"Snicketeers will relish the chance to revisit Lemony and several familiar characters."--Booklist

About the Author

Lemony Snicket was somewhere else on the night in question, if anybody's asking. He is the suspicious author of All The Wrong Questions, including "Who Could That Be at This Hour?" and "When Did You See Her Last?," all the books in A Series of Unfortunate Events, and The Dark.
If you think you spotted Seth at the scene of the crime, it probably wasn't him after all. He is the creator of Palookaville, Clyde Fans, The Great Northern Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists, and the unnerving art found in All the Wrong Questions.

Format: Hardcover
I love Lemony Snicket. I love everything he writes, and his style of writing. Although this book is formatted differently, I found that it still had the essence of Lemony Snicket in there. 13 Suspicious Incidents is literally just that. A book about 13 incidents that Snicket resolves very quickly. It's enjoyable, and fun, and quirky.

The book reminded me a little bit of those Goosebumps books with alternative endings in the sense that to read the ending and how the mystery was solved Snicket tells you to go to (xx page) to find out what happened, allowing you to take a jab at solving it yourself before reading who the real culprit is.

It's a very quick read, and I thought it was a nice intermission from the series All the Wrong Questions. Sort of like those short Pixar films played before a Disney movie.

It's very good but you have to read it in the right order so it makes sense. Read it problem then solution don't read all the problems and then all the solutions
